About the Author:

        " That thousands of people the world over continue to benefit from the rionecring work of the Founder of The Yoga Institute, Santa Cruz, Shri Yogendraji, is in a large measure due to the love, devotion and unswerving loyalty of his life partner, Smt. Sita Devi. Founder has himself paid tribute to her saying " Without Sita, the Institute's work would not have been possible."

        Smt. Sita Devi yogendra was born on 1st June 1912. She was married to Shri Yogendraji on 29th September 1927. She is the mother to two sons and is successfully combining the yoga way of life along with her several duties as an able homemaker.

        "It is highly appropriate that Smt. Sita Devi Yogendra is affectionately addressed simply as "Mother" by all who meet her, since this word has been time-hallowed as signifying the best, most dignified example of life of love, care and self-sacrifice for the sake of husband and children, and also the whole community."

        She was introduced to Yoga soon after her marriage and absorbed sufficient knowledge and technique of Yoga in two years time. She was then made the Secretary-Treasurer of the Institute and has been in charge of the ladies section. She came in contact with Dr. John W. Fox who give her elementary knowledge of anatomy, physiology and medical care.

        The Author started contributing articles to the journal Yoga from its very inception and continued to contribute articles to The Journal of The yoga Institute and Classic Yoga International. Her first work appeared under the title Easy Pastures for Women, which went through various editions. This was thoroughly revised later and then was presented in a new edition of which the present work is a reprint.

        All the cases referred to in this book were treated personally by her and the results were accepted as successful even by the medical profession. She has treated over five thousand cases and knows enough about the science of yoga for personal health and self-improvement.

        Yoga Physical Education for Women has been bailed the world over as the first authoritative book on yoga for women written by a woman. It has been translated in several languages.

Testimonials

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
