What most folks really want is good health. With it, you can do anything. Without it, everything is an obstacle. And in these days, the cheaper the better, the more trustworthy the better, and the more do-it-yourself the better. This book contains a wide array of yoga postures for us Westerners, with clear drawings, simple instructions, and a wonderful introduction about yoga as a tool for self-healing.
Among the many books on the Keeping Healthy shelves are some outstanding ones with an unusual slant. Yoga for Health and Healing, compiled by Alice Clagett from the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, Ph.D., offers easy-to-follow outline sketches of streamlined and efficient yoga positions for healing over 100 specific physical problems. Standard states such as headache, colds, and flu and back problems are covered as well as less ordinary challenges like improving hearing, restoring natural hair color, establishing menstrual regularity when going off the pill, and rebuilding from drug damage and dependence.
