While 36.7 million Americans practice yoga, there are still plenty who don't yet: in fact, half of all Americans profess interest in this ancient tradition and more studies show the benefits of yoga for stress reduction, physical fitness, and chronic conditions each year. The Harvard Medical School Guide to Yoga is a comprehensive guide that gets to the true healing heart of yoga and its latest research, through the techniques that authors Marlynn Wei and James Groves have used to great success with their clients. With a streamlined eight–week program, illustrations, adaptable sequences, principles of yoga safety, and an unpacking of the “eight limbs” of yoga—including breathing techniques and meditation, The Harvard Medical School Guide to Yoga is a medically sound overview of the practice, from a known and trusted brand.

About the Authors:

She began practicing yoga in 2008 during her residency training at Harvard Medical School and completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher certification.
