An outstandingly reviewed student guide, written by an award-winning Ivy League faculty member and longtime student and teacher of yoga, that explores ways that yoga (postures, breath work, meditation, and principles of yogic philosophy) and related areas (such as anatomy, physiology, neuroscience, and psychology) can help students improve their academics, creativity, and social life. The author includes material for experienced yogis as well as beginners. She examines twenty common student concerns and offers yoga practices as well as other approaches to deal with them. Additionally, she provides a list of more than 40 handy tools for reducing distress and improving attention and mental acuity (which is what yoga is ultimately all about) and includes an extensive biography for those who wish to go deeper.
