Overview

Teach Yourself Yoga was first released in Australia in 1997 and became an immediate bestseller. It started many people on their own yoga paths, and still has pride of place on many a practitioner’s bookshelf.



Out of print for 15 years, this new release is a re-creation of the original book, with a few changes to reflect the ways some poses are currently taught. This accessible guide explains the background and benefits of yoga practice, as well as how to do the poses. A bonus is the detailed and illustrated 12-week program that offers a simple way to weave yoga into your daily life.

If you care about health and well-being, this new edition of Teach Yourself Yoga is sure to deliver on its original promise of inspiring you to do yoga.

About the Author

Currently Eve is 75 years old, in her fortieth year of teaching.

Her style of yoga emphasises self-care, care for our environment and loving kindness practice.

Before moving to the country, Eve founded two yoga studios, Sydney Yoga Centre and Simply Yoga.
Writing is an equal passion with yoga for Eve. She has two published books, 'Teach Yourself Yoga and 'The Art of Adjustment', many yoga-related articles, and her weekly blog, 'Yoga Suits Her'. A memoir is in the planning/writing stage.

Eve and her husband joined with two other couples-long-term friends- in 2009 to live communally on the Midcoast of NSW. They wanted to adopt a gentler lifestyle and support each other's endeavours as they aged.

Some of the communities they participate in are a writers' group, book club, choir and palliative care volunteering.

Eve has three grandchildren, all under 5 years old.
