Your Flex-Ability DVD has renewed my hope and eased my physical pain. So much so that I am looking forward to doing it again tomorrow and releasing more of the stress and strain of excess from my body. Most importantly, for me you made the mind, body, AND spirit connection that has been missing in every other exercise I've done up until this point. This is what I have been searching for!

Yoga Chicago - Book Review


Now more than ever, people are recog­nizing that yoga practice is not just for young and thin bodies. With an emphasis on health and relaxation, Meera has developed a unique yoga program for larger individuals. She begins with an explanation of what yoga is, the benefits it offers, and how it can fit into anyone's life. She cautions big yogis to be kind to their body, to stay relaxed, and feel invigorated without straining.

Part two offers more than 40 postures specifically designed to work with larger bodies. Meera explains the benefits of the postures and provides step-by-step instructions along with photos of her “bodacious, curvy” self, demonstrating the postures.

Meera has yoga in her blood. In the section on the history of yoga, she tells how her great-grandmother had attended the Parliament of Religions conference in 1893 where Swami Vivekananda spoke to a captive audience on the steps of what is now the Art Institute of Chicago. A few summers ago she uncovered the program from the event at the bottom of a trunk at the family's summer cottage!

Thank you, Meera, for writing this book.
