    Busy Life keeping you from taking time for yourself, keeping you from a full yoga practice Carol Krucoff author of Yoga Sparks states that yes, we are all at some point too busy for yoga but we all would not mind reaping the benefits of yoga positive mood, decrease in stress, fewer aches and pains etc Krucoff takes away your excuses by offering you 108 practices or yoga sparks for daily life that she claims will relieve stress in a minute or less so yes even you, Mr or Mrs Too Busy, wi Busy Life keeping you from taking time for yourself, keeping you from a full yoga practice Carol Krucoff author of Yoga Sparks states that yes, we are all at some point too busy for yoga but we all would not mind reaping the benefits of yoga positive mood, decrease in stress, fewer aches and pains etc Krucoff takes away your excuses by offering you 108 practices or yoga sparks for daily life that she claims will relieve stress in a minute or less so yes even you, Mr or Mrs Too Busy, will have time for yoga It is after a near death experience and many health issues that Krucoff starts to develop her mircopractices so she can cope She really stresses throughout the book the mastery of yoga is not measured by the length of a practice or if you can turn yourself into a pretzel but instead on how it influences our daily living The book focuses on the four main aspects of yoga which Krucoff defines as 1 postures, 2 breathing, 3 meditation and 4 principles Each of the 108 sparks will focus on some aspect of the four main principles and are designed to be done anytime, anywhere Examples of some of the sparks include single postures like Mountain Pose to help you center yourself in stressful circumstances, being mindful while doing everyday tasks like brushing your teeth or doing the dishes and washing your hands to promote cleanliness She also offers suggestions of developing empathy through loving a pet and spendingtime laughing each day The book is short and some of the sparks are reiterations of previous sparks Overall, the advice is good and can be summed up as Slow down and appreciate life While there are some nods towards yoga practice it is not really a book about yoga practices It reads very much like a list of motherly advice While I see nothing wrong with simple reminders to pet our dogs and wash our hands I personally do not see this as a good addition to my yoga library The book is set for publication on August 1, 2013 from New Harbinger Publications.Note I received this book from the publisher for review In no way did it affect the content of my review

    Great quick and easy book for those who want to add some Yoga to their life The practices are easy to learn and the pictures give you a clear understanding of what the pose looks like.In addition to yoga poses there is information on breathing techniques and a few other tips for reducing stress.Perfect book for someone interested in Yoga but doesn t want something complicated and doesn t have a lot of time.

    This book was exactly what I was looking for a really simple break down of basic Yoga and how to incorporate it in everyday life I especially loved the different breathing exercises.

    This short, easy to read book is completely as advertised by its subtitle 108 easy practices for stress relief in a minute or less There s nothing truly groundbreaking for any already familiar with yoga and mindfulness, which is probably why the cover contains a Perfect for Beginners icon.The practices are broken up by location anywhere, around the house, at work, on the go, and with others Many of the practices could be done across multiple locations, but it is nice to have ones that can This short, easy to read book is completely as advertised by its subtitle 108 easy practices for stress relief in a minute or less There s nothing truly groundbreaking for any already familiar with yoga and mindfulness, which is probably why the cover contains a Perfect for Beginners icon.The practices are broken up by location anywhere, around the house, at work, on the go, and with others Many of the practices could be done across multiple locations, but it is nice to have ones that can be done at a work desk and ones that can be done on public transportation separate.Each location contains the same four areas of focus posture, breathing, meditation, and principles I personally got muchout of the principles than any other aspect, with meditation coming in second The posture practices are basically just isolated yoga poses e.g mountain pose, a modified down dog The breathing practices were also nothing new you also have to accept all the ancient medicine behind things like how air flowing the right nostril varies from air flowing through the left nostril.The introduction actually throws a lot of yoga history and terms at the reader Those terms are revisited throughout the practices But none of them are necessary for understanding, appreciating, and applying the practices So don t let the relatively long winded introduction push you away Skip it if you just want to get to the practices.Overall a good, concise manual on some easy to apply yoga practices that should help most people find some stress relief, learn some mindfulness, and start to calm the monkey mind
