About the Author

Michael Hetherington L.Ac, BHlthSci, is a qualified acupuncturist, Oriental medicine teacher, and yoga teacher based in Brisbane, Australia. He has been practicing yoga since 2000 and working with Chinese medicine since 2004. He has a keen interest in mind-body medicine, energetic anatomy, nutrition and herbs, yoga nidra and Buddhist style meditation. Michael was always attracted to eastern philosophy and it was this interest that drew him to the teachings and practices of yoga and Oriental medicine at a young age. After traveling to China to teach English for a year, he returned to Australia in 2004 to begin studying Chinese medicine, remedial massage and practicing oki-do (Japanese yoga) and hatha yoga more seriously. He regularly hosts workshops and develops short courses on topics related to self health care, yoga and meditation.

As it turns out, there is yoga, then there is “restorative” yoga. And if you want to enjoy something that can truly uplift your health and spirit, deeply calm your mind, and can restore a sense of balance in your life, then Michael Hetherington has all the answers. At the very least, he firmly reminds us that the phrase “no pain, no gain” is not always true—in fact, its effect might be the opposite. Hetherington’s book, ‘How to Do Restorative Yoga’ is a delight to read, primarily because you can immediately go ahead and do what the book says without too much preparation. In fact, a few hours after reading this and performing some of the “light” poses, you can immediately feel a huge difference. I also love how the author emphasizes safety. As you know, there are certain yoga practices that are reported to cause more damage than good, and I love the fact that Hetherington is mindful of the utmost safety of his readers. Hetherington, a seasoned, well-experienced yoga teacher with years of experience in helping out countless people achieve a better, healthier life through yoga, asserts to follow his “fundamentals” first to make sure you don’t rush into doing the poses and thereby negate whatever positive benefits yoga is supposed to bring.  Most importantly, the book enlightens even readers who are encountering yoga and its related concepts for the very first time. The author’s language is easy to read, with a friendly tone that inspires rather than intimidates, and the discussion helpfully detailed that makes you understand the concepts behind the poses, and what they do to the body. I had my computer “read” the book’s instructions aloud while I try to do the first few poses, and it’s awesome. You can do this in the comfort and quiet of your own home, without needing any complicated, expensive equipment. Overall , ‘How to Do Restorative Yoga’ is a great investment for your health and well-being. Get a copy today—or send this as a gift to your friends. If you want to be sure, see the first few chapters on Kindle and try out the first few poses—I bet that like me, you’ll get instantly hooked! Five stars, no less.
