Devi concentrates not only on the physical-culture aspects of Yoga-but also on the more spiritual forms as practiced in India. She gives you 6 practical lessons you can easily follow in your own home. Devi's 1-2-3 instructions are as specific and complete as if she were personally directing you in her own Hollywood studio. She takes you step by step from the first through the final stages of all the important Yoga postures, exercises and deep breathing. You learn how to do the 10 basic Yoga postures including the Headstand, the Lotus Pose, the Cobra Pose, the Twist, and others. As you combine these postures with the proper deep breathing, you will start to enjoy sounder sleep, a keener mind, and a happier disposition. Mental and muscular tensions will diminish- and you will discover new protections against colds, fevers, sore throats, constipation, headaches, fatigue, and other ailments. [From the Dust jacket]
