For example, in the first part of the book, Patricia Walden has organized three chapters showing yoga poses with clear instructions that tell how to get in

    A must-have, January 23, 2003

    This review is from: The Woman’s Book of Yoga and Health: A Lifelong Guide to Wellness (Paperback)

    As a long time practioner of Pilates, a relative newcomer to traditional yoga, and a woman who has, and will, experience some of the health issues, I found this book a great source of reference. What I found most useful, aside from Patricia’s yoga poses & Linda Sparrowe’s easy-to-read writing style, are the suggested herbal & dietary alternatives throughout the book. Not only do I have a copy, I bought one for all my closest girlfriends!! This book is a definate must-have in any woman’s bookcase!!

    This review is from: The Woman’s Book of Yoga and Health: A Lifelong Guide to Wellness (Paperback)

    This book is written by long-time yoga practitioner Linda Sparrowe in conjunction with Patricia Walden, a world-renowned yogi. They have created a unique manual on health and wellness throughout the lifespan which is designed specifically for women. Although the main focus is on yoga sequences, the book also includes general information on various health-related issues faced by women as well as tips and strategies for maintaining health.

    The book is organized into sections which correspond to each phase of a woman’s life. For example, Part Two, The Time of Awakening, is geared towards teenaged/young adult women and focuses on menstrual health and immune system support, whereas the final section, Wisdom from the Heart, is designed with older women in mind and concentrates on minimizing postmenopausal symptoms and other similar conditions. Although each section does have an intended age audience, women of all ages are likely to find something of use in every chapter–for example, a younger woman struggling with depression might benefit from the depression chapter geared to postpartum women, whereas an older woman who suffers from headaches could obtain assistance from the “Relieving Headaches” chapter written as part of the Coming Into Fullness section. There are also three general yoga sequences at the start of the book which are intended for all women; these sequences revolve around essential, energizing, and restorative themes.

    Beginning yoga practitioners will find the short introduction on how to use the book to be helpful. Patricia Walden’s training is in Iyengar yoga, which means that she utilizes a variety of props to make the poses more accessible. Props are particularly recommended for restorative postures, as they allow you to relax more fully into the pose. Easy-to-understand, detailed instructions and clear, precise photographs are used to describe every yoga pose. Many of the poses also include information about positive effects, potential modifications, and any cautions. Some sequences detail shorter practices with only 6 or so postures included, but others offer longer practices of up to 26 postures.

    This book is appropriate for female yogis of all levels, from beginning to advanced (although I should note that many of the sequences include headstand and/or shouldstand, postures that shouldn’t be attempted by beginners without the aid of a yoga instructor). The book would make a wonderful gift for any woman with an interest in wellness issues, and I highly recommend it!

    … this book reminded me how easy it was to get back in touch with myself, to relax and to understand what my body was up to. i really like sparrowe’s almost conversational tone. it is accessible, and kind of fun to read as well as being full of useful information. i have a feeling i’ll refer to this book for the rest of my life.
