This book by Louise Wiggins is a very accessible book for anyone to pick up and use – in fact it would make a great gift for someone who was thinking about yoga but wasn’t convinced that the practice was for them.
It is such a wise book that I can’t help returning to it for inspiriation again and again…
“Yoga Teaches… We are as young as the spine is flexible. Old age begins when we allow the spine to stiffen.”
Besides many pages of postures and routines for arthritis, relaxation and bouncing back from illness, Louise includes plenty of testimonials from people 70- 80+ about how yoga really has given them a new lease of life. There are very compelling reasons for practicing a daily routine of yoga plus recipes and tips on healthy diet too.
“Biologists agree that our biological age potential is about 130! That means when we reach the age of 65, we are really only middle aged!
If we expect to remain active and strong as we age, we will. If we succumb to the belief that we grow frail and weak as we age, we will. Our thoughts and beliefs hold great power over our biology and our growth.”
I thoroughly recommend it for you and for you to give as a gift to someone you love.
