Yoga is for every body, including yours
For years, yoga books have asked readers to bend over backward (literally ) to conform to their physical demands. It's time for the opposite--for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs. It's time for a yoga book to reflect the broader population that would benefit from a yoga practice geared toward them. It's time for Yoga for Everyone
This book offers yoga for every type of body: those who are big, small, elderly, pregnant, or of various physical abilities--everyone. No matter who you are or what you look like or what your abilities are, you can do all
50 poses in this book. The variations to classic poses in this book will also allow you to perform all 10 sequences, which combine different poses into one singular experience and focus on specific physical and mental benefits.
So forget what you've heard. Yoga isn't just for the privileged few. It's meant to be enjoyed by everybody and every
body. Yes, you can
do yoga--and Yoga for Everyone
will show you how
--------------------------------- "Dianne is a wonderful teacher with a voice and a message that's absolutely needed not only in the yoga community but also in the world. I'd go as far as to say that this book is the most important yoga book released this year. This book smashes the myth of the thin, able-bodied yogi and provides a safe introduction to the art of yoga in a way that's accessible to all. Yoga is for everyone "-- Rachel Brathen, author of Yoga Girl
"Dianne Bondy is truly a leader in the yoga world. Her unwavering commitment to accessibility and inclusiveness is demonstrated perfectly in her new book, Yoga for Everyone. This is a great book for yoga teachers and yoga students of all levels. If you're intimated by the conventional imagery of yoga, if you think yoga isn't for you, or if you're a teacher looking for tools to make the practice approachable for everyone, this book will be a valuable tool. Yoga is an ancient science of the soul, and Dianne's work aims to bring these universal teachings to different kinds of folks with the heart and wisdom that's a vital part of her contribution to the world."-- Kino MacGregor, yoga instructor "Dianne is a force, a personal inspiration, and someone who knows her power and uses it to uplift others. Western yoga and wellness spaces are severely lacking safety and inclusion. Oftentimes, walking into those spaces can feel more marginalizing than healing. Dianne's book is full of resources anybody can use--teacher or student--to create an accessible and welcoming space. The visual representation of diverse bodies and abilities provides a needed reminder that yoga in indeed for all of us. Thank you, Dianne "-- Dana Falsetti, yoga instructor
