Review:

"Riches, fame? What most folks really want is good health. With it, you can do anything. Without it, everything is an obstacle. And in these days, the cheaper the better, the more trustworthy the better, and the more do-it-yourself the better. This book contains a wide array of yoga postures for us Westerners, with clear drawings, simple instructions, and a wonderful introduction about yoga as a tool for self-healing. The yoga here is from the teachings of Yogi Bhajan: streamlined methods of white tantric yoga and kundalini yoga techniques. Suggestions and methods galore for particular illnesses and pains. --The Book Reader, Spring 1995 -- The Book Reader, Spring 1995

Based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan, this manual of "fast-acting" kundalini yoga techniques and meditations for self-healing explains concepts like the 10 bodies, the electric force, the magnetic field, chakras, kundalini energy, kriyas, and mantra. It teaches poses for a variety of purposes, from preventing sickness to curing migraines to healing others. It's a substantial introduction to the potent yoga of Yogi Bhajan. --Yoga Journal, May/June 1995 -- Yoga Journal, May/June 1995

These days, low-cost health care is on everyone's mind, even for those with adequate health coverage. So it may be with more than casual interest that you note the release of Yoga for Health and Healing, which is based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan. Most intriguing is the chapter on specific physical problems--over 100 of them--with yoga poses to match. This may be the first time this encyclopedic approach has ever been applied to yoga. Also of note for those with a family member in ill health is a chapter containing exercises and meditations for healing others. The book proposes that such techniques "have the added advantage of improving the health of the sender, as one must first be healthy in order to impart health." --Stepping Up Toward Wholeness, March 22, 1995 -- Stepping Up Toward Wholeness, March 22, 1995

What's worse--a fever or smelly feet? We'll leave that up to you because a book called Yoga for Health and Healing says that massaging your feet with half an onion will bring down a fever and help detoxify the body. There is a lot of talk about the fact that nerves in the feet reach to every part of the human body. "A pain in the foot that is not related to an injury is a sign that the body is about to become ill," Clagett said. Each part of the foot, she says, corresponds with an area of the body. The outside of your dogs, just below the pinky toe, is associated with the joints of the shoulder and arm. --Keith Marder, Albany Times, 1996 -- Albany Times, 1996
