Yoga is more than a time-honored philosophy, it is a complete way of life. All those who practice it know its value in improving health and vitality, renewing and prolonging youthful forces, and achieving a state of well-being and equanimity far beyond the generally accepted norm. Yoga for Today is the most comprehensive and authentic guide to the "why and how" of Yoga ever published in the West, an invaluable handbook for physical fitness and efficient living through unity of body, mind, and spirit. The material has been condensed into streamlined form, to meet the requirements of a busy contemporary world. Each exercise is so clearly described, step by step, that even a beginner can follow the directions, whereas the more advanced student will find the book invaluable as a reference. A teacher of Yoga for over 20 years, Mrs. Spring explains clearly the meaning and purpose of Yoga and its place in today's world. There is a brief outline of each of its 6 forms, but major emphasis is on Hatha Yoga, the aim of which is personal fulfillment through self mastery. In the second section of Yoga for Today are detailed instructions for practicing the various exercises and postures, illustrated with 50 photographs from life. A final section devoted to general instructions for the beginner, also includes a check list of exercised for daily practice. Here is a new, practical approach to an ancient science which can give renewed meaning to modern living. Clara Spring and Madeleine Goss have pooled their knowledge and resources in Yoga for Today. Mrs. Spring, trained by masters from the Orient, has been for years a dedicated teacher of Yoga. Through her long experience, she has gained extensive practical knowledge which has made it possible for her to adapt the subject to requirements of the West.
