Gentle Workouts for Health & FitnessBook - 2006
Bestselling author Juliet Pegrum ( Ashtanga Yoga , Kid Yoga ) shows over-50-year-olds how to slow down the aging process--and bring body, mind, and spirit into harmony--with this simplified, safe, and fully illustrated approach to yoga. The beauty of yoga is that anyone can enjoy its benefits--increased suppleness, more mobile joints, improved circulation--regardless of age or ability. Juliet Pegrum, a world-renowned teacher who has studied in India, makes it easier than ever to begin, with a smartly planned program tailored to over-50s. Not only has she adapted the poses so that newcomers can perform them without strain (all exercises are designed to meet the health needs of older practitioners), but she incorporates props--chairs, belts, bolsters--that reduce the risk of joint and muscle injury. Of special interest are the targeted programs to relieve common problems, from the symptoms of menopause to the inflammation of arthritis. A Selection of the One Spirit Book Club.
