Overview

Daya Devi-Doolin has written an excellent, simple and readable book on Hatha Yoga. YOGA, MEDITATION AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH For the AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY is for you, the everyday person, the person who works, has a family (or not) and wants to stay stress-free, happy, fulfilled and healthy. This book will lead you, the yoga aspirant, and participant to that place. It has a loving and knowledgeable approach as if the reader were right in Daya�s Yoga studio at the Doolin Healing Sanctuary.


There are millions of people who are suffering from one type of illness or another or debilitation of some kind. They don't realize or haven't been introduced to the beneficial effects of how yoga can help one move beyond limitations and restrictions in order to be free, mobile and excited about life! This book provides hope and direction for a new or a renewed body, mind and spirit.


You should not only read this book, you should take one posture, apply the steps and put the practice into your life. Even if you stay with one posture all week, you will find a vast improvement in your, attitude, body and spirit. You will feel �opened up�, cleared and excited about what you have accomplished.


This book can open the door to many wonderful opportunities. A teacher may come, a healing might happen and a peaceful, serene feeling will result. In some instances, asthma has cleared up, lower
back pain has disappeared, female problems have healed, arthritic problems in wrists and knees have gone and much more.


The major difference is that this book is for you, the everyday person, the person who works, has a family (or not) and wants to stay stress-free, happy, fulfilled and healthy. This book will lead you, the yoga aspirant, and participant to that place. It is knowledgeable, has a loving approach as if the reader were right at the Doolin Healing Sanctuary. The models/photos that are used are real people. The models that are photographed are not size 2 or 8, they are men and women of average shapes, sizes, from various backgrounds and weights.



The one common thing they have is a wish to be healthy, fit, trim, flexible and happy and you can feel that through viewing their practices and postures in a home setting. They are encouraging you to know that you too can do Yoga regardless of where you are or how limited you are.


The main idea is that everyone can benefit from Yoga and Meditation.



Daya encourages everyone to practice the yoga poses on a regular basis in the quiet of your home and/or in your local yoga studio. Take it slowly with love for yourself and love for the universe. As you read through the pages you are inspired to open your practice with your heart always and give thanks for whatever you can accomplish.



YOGA, MEDITATION AND SPIRITUAL GROWTH For the AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY chapters include: Getting Started, What is Yoga?, Yogic Breathing Techniques, Yoga Styles, The key to Meditating, Yoga and Health, Healing with Yoga, Basic Points of Yoga Etiquette in a Class, Yoga & Weight Loss, Yoga Basics & Tips for a Great Yoga Practice, Poses That Heal Joints, Asanas are Suitable for Everyone, A Sample at Home Asana Practice, and A Core Practice Guide for 14 Days.
