A Home Companion
By Pat Shapiro

Would you like to age with grace and vitality? Increase your strength, energy and flexibility? Sleep better and be sharper mentally?

You can achieve all of these if you practice yoga on a regular basis. Many women go to class once or twice a week and want to practice at home but just don’t know how to begin. Yoga for Women at Midlife and Beyond: A Home Companion will give women over 50 the support and guidance they need to create a personal yoga practice in the privacy of their own home.

This guidebook includes ten yoga practices with clear illustrations that you can follow on your own, such as a practice for energizing, one for relaxation and another for insomnia. The manual also contains practical information about:
• where, when and how long to practice
• how to set an intention and get support for your practice
• how to use your breath to enhance your practice, and
• how to sustain a home practice.

Concepts from classical yoga philosopy to help readers deepen their practice and integrate relevant concepts into their lives are introduced. Inspiring stories from women over 50 about how yoga has made a difference to them are peppered throughout the book.
