Product description

Review

"A beautiful book telling the stories of nine yoga teachers, all of them with a remarkable story to tell, told by a fellow yoga teacher and researcher, Kathy Arthurson. The vitality and energy of these amazing women well into their later years is a testament to the power of yoga to aid health and well-being. I particularly loved the way their stories were an illustration of what the research, well documented in this book, tells us about the impact of mindfulness and yoga practice on both physical and mental well-being. A must read for anyone interested in positive ageing!"

Cheryl Quinn, Clinical Psychologist


"A real-life over fear approach to ageing in the 21st century. A must-read for all, especially women looking to age with grace, natural beauty, and the belief in their limitless potential regardless of age." Brynne Caleda, M.Ed., eRYT, CEO Yoga Ed.

"Telling stories is a powerful way of letting the world know about our experiences. This book by Kathy Arthurson tells stories about people and their journey through yoga. It is encouraging, uplifting and inspiring. I dare anyone to read it and not feel compelled to try yoga!" Professor John Coveney, College of Nursing and Health Sciences, Flinders University, South Australia.


"Kathy Arthurson's Yoga Years provides a snapshot history of yoga teaching since the 1940s through the stories of nine women, from a Russian immigrant in the 1920s through the hippie era, to TV yoga, and women who continue to teach today as they head into their 70s and beyond. At the same time, the stories give refreshing encouragement to challenge the current mass delusion that as you get older your body will necessarily break down like an old car. While most of us are unlikely to practise yoga at the level of these interviewees, or may never take up yoga at all, you can take inspiration from their optimism despite their life challenges. The book has nice little touches to round out each story, including an introduction to the woman and the 'bookends' of a poem about them and the author's interview reflections. I was interested to hear of the considerable yoga training most of these teachers had done - which is getting lost today in the quick-course approach for many fitness and health modalities - and the explanation of different styles and aspects of yoga beyond just the physical focus that most people see. I commend this book to you if you are interested in yoga, or are keen to join the new wave of women committed to 'growing younger'!" Dr Lareen Newman PhD, Women's Coach for Work-Stress Release at Tapping Into Serenity."
