For years, books on yoga have asked readers to bend over backward (literally!) to conform to their physical demands. At DK, we believe it’s time to change that! Why not allow for readers to demand that yoga conform to their individual needs instead? This is yoga for real people!

Once you familiarise yourself with the yoga exercises that best suit you and your abilities, you’ll begin to notice the benefits of yoga and positive changes they have on your body, whether it’s your enhanced flexibility, your improved posture or your stronger core. What a rewarding experience for readers!

Yoga for Everyone aims to teach readers that with a little modification, anyone can practice Yoga, perfect their poses and become stronger and more confident as you go. Whether you want to structure your sun salutation or demand more from your downward dog, this all-encompassing yoga book will be your one-stop guide to achieving perfection with each pose no matter your physical ability, and learn some top tips on yoga anatomy and yoga science along the way. 

A must-have volume for those who want to take up yoga but don’t know where to begin, or simply those seeking to start a low-impact exercise, Yoga for Everyone can be tailored to your individual fitness needs, so you make the most out of your poses! Why not stretch yourself, literally, this New Year and try something new? Your mind, body and soul will thank you!

Praise For…


“Dianne Bondy continues to be a leading voice in the accessible yoga movement, and this book will serve as an excellent resource for anyone (and that’s most of us) who doesn’t resonate with or benefit from a standard one-size-fits-all approach to poses. Yoga for Everyone encapsulates the heart of Dianne’s teachings, which is to make yoga fully adaptable to the experience of the practitioner. Whether beginners or long-time yoga students, readers will be able to choose a pose and find a route into it that suits their individual desires and needs. The models demonstrating the poses also represent a range of abilities, ages, and sizes, reflecting that yoga truly is for everyone.”
— Todd Wolfenberg, CEO of Yoga International
 
“Yoga for Everyone is a celebration and a triumph! It not only powerfully illustrates that every body is a yoga body, but it also illustrates the diversity and range of the practice itself through the adaptations and variations of yoga poses. Now everyone can access the benefits of a consistent yoga practice tailored to their individual needs and unique and beautiful body.” 
— Melanie Klein, editor of Yoga Rising: 30 Empowering Stories from Yoga Renegades for Every Body and co-editor of the ground-breaking collection Yoga and Body Image: 25 Personal Stories About Beauty, Bravery and Loving Your Body.
