Gentle yoga appeals to people of all ages who enjoy a yoga style that is peaceful, comfortable and easy to keep up with. In gentle yoga each pose will look different for each person because of the diversity of health, body shapes and sizes. This book encourages you to adjust the poses to their most accessible form based on your body type, limitations, flexibility and strength. In some cases, if you are battling serious health concerns such as cancer or chronic disease a gentle practice is the place to begin. Students with pain, disabilities and special conditions have unique concerns and I attempt to speak to them in this book. Especially when we add chairs and yoga props, the practice becomes accessible to many more people. From a place of comfort, these gentle poses can be practiced at many levels for new challenges. This style of yoga promotes all the conditions needed to assist in learning and practicing mindfulness and deeper meditation. When you find the most comfortable shape of a pose you can finally relax. When the body relaxes, the mind can relax, stress melts away and from here, meditation is more likely.
