KIRKUS REVIEW

A reassuring and practical text on applied Yoga, this book by the author of Forever Young, Forever Healthy comes to direct grips with its subject, treating it as a therapeutic and preventative measure rather than a mystical key to the occult. After a brief definition of Yoga, the various positions, breathing exercises and postures are systematically explained with prescriptions for a healthy diet indicated. There is no doubt that the regime suggested by Indra Devi is a valid one and one employed by many reputed herapists, both Eastern and Western. Here is no recondite work on Yoga and its philosophical implications, but rather a positive and possible suggestion by which modern man may improve his health and lessen his tensions. Written with straightforwardness and clarity.
