That vision of yoga – people with shaved heads and handing flowers to strangers at the airport – is by no means the overall picture.
Yoga is really a very simple, accessible, and in many countries around the world, ordinary thing to do.
In that light, this book is created with one goal in mind: to demystify yoga for you, and provide you with a clear, simple, and fun introduction to the topic.
If you've never been exposed to any kind of yoga (except for what you might have seen on television), then this book is for you!
In addition, even if you have experienced some kinds of yoga (perhaps a friend dragged you to a class at the local recreation center all those years ago), this book will reignite your interest in the topic and reattach you to a mode of body movement and mind focus that has lived in ancient lands for millennium.
This book is conveniently organized into four sections:
-What is Yoga?
-Why is Yoga Beneficial?
-Different Kinds of Yoga
-Yoga Equipment & Accessories
As you read through these sections, please bear in mind that there is absolutely no attempt here, directly or indirectly (or in any other way possible!) to endorse or promote any religious view.
