Millions of people take time out of their busy schedules every day to attend yoga classes where they learn postures and breathing techniques that make them feel more energized and balanced. Thousands of other people, however, have yet to find the time in their day to do anything but work, study, or chase after their children. In The Joy of Yoga, author and expert Emma Silverman teaches readers how to take advantage of the health benefits yoga offers even when they can't make it to regularly scheduled classes.

In addition, it also includes sequences to help with daily aches, pains, and annoyances, such as tired feet, sensitive wrists, neck and shoulder tension, lower back pain, anxiety, and even heartbreak. Gardeners, cyclists, and runners will also find exercises that will help ease the tension in their muscles after long hours of work or play.
The Joy of Yoga will also: Provide step-by-step instructions on asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing techniques) for fifty sequences Includes the benefits of each sequence and helpful information about modifications for poses Encourage readers to create sequences on their own, using the sequences in the book as starting points
