About Joel's book Yoga in No Time at All


Yoga is one of the few activities that promotes vitality for all our physical elements: strength, flexibility, and balance. In addition, yoga can encourage a sense of stillness and quiet.

 

Yet, we commonly hear several reasons for not practicing yoga or exercising:

 

    * No time
    * No money
    * No energy

 

The techniques in Yoga in No Time at All cost nothing, take little or no time out of your busy day, and take very little energy. This is the ideal book for anyone wishing to have more time in his or her life for yoga and fitness in general.

 

Anyone, from an absolute beginner to an advanced yogi, can find something useful in this book. Each pose is rated from one to five in difficulty and includes the time required, if any. Ideally suited to people who sit a lot during their day, there is something inside for everyone.

 

Valuable tips for correct workstation ergonomics are provided along with brief exercises to keep the body fluid and moving throughout the day.
