About the Book

Yoga is a holistic science of wellbeing that brings healing from within. The three-layered approach of yoga therapy-relaxing the muscles, slowing the breathing, and calming the mind-restores inner harmony and counteracts the stress that underlies many common diseases. Yoga for Common Ailments shows you how to use yogic ideas and practices to reduce these inner tensions and heal yourself naturally.

Using step-by-step instructions and over 75 illustrations, Yoga for Common Ailments guides you through a Basic Session for maintaining health and fitness. Then it explains how to construct a yoga program tailored to treating more than 35 common ailments, including:

• Asthma

• Back pain

• Bronchitis

• Cancer

• Common colds and flu 1

• Depression

• Diabetes

• Fatigue

• Heart disease

• Hypertension

• Insomnia

• Obesity
