Simple Yoga takes an extremely complex subject and makes it accessible to general readers. It explains what yoga is, how it evolved in ancient India, and how it can benefit the typically harried Western lifestyle. It gives practical information on the various yoga styles available in the West and offers suggestions for choosing a style and finding an appropriate teacher. A chapter on women and yoga and a basic routine for readers to try on their own are included, as well as a modified routine for the office. Unlike most yoga books, targeted to people already involved in the discipline, Simple Yoga is short and easy to absorb. It gives a feel for what yoga is without getting overly theoretical. A practical guide, it is particularly useful in helping readers find the style of yoga that's right for them.

    being in our bodies can change so dramatically that what was “normal” before is no longer acceptable: we have a new standard of health.
    The mind can also be impacted by yoga practice. Many people report that their powers of concentration increase. People also find that memory is improved. In general, as yoga becomes more central to our lives, we become increasingly sensitive to the activity in our minds. We become aware of how much random mental movement there is most of the time. In particular, though, we notice our mental tendencies, or habits, and we begin to wake up to how these tendencies influence our actions.
