Yoga can tone the body, energise or relax you, balance your emotions and promote good health. In Yoga in Practice Katy takes you step-by-step through 50 core postures, including easier and more advanced versions where appropriate. She explains the physical and emotional benefits each one brings, whether it is building a strong body, stimulating the metabolism, alleviating specific health problems, increasing energy or lifting the spirits. She also describes how breathing and meditation can bring mental balance and a sense of peace in as little as ten minutes a day.
