"Yoga for Real Life is one of the most successful yoga books of the past decade. Maya Fiennes has done for yoga what Nigella Lawson did for food."
Maya Fiennes believes passionately that yoga can be enjoyed by everyone, young and old. Her unique style of yoga and meditation for modern living is based on Kundalini yoga, which works on inner energy centres ('Chakras'), combining poses, breathing, chanting and meditation for a full mind-body workout. Both deeply enjoyable and uplifting, it has made her one of the most in-demand yoga instructors in the world. Whether you're fit and flexible or haven't sat cross-legged since childhood, Yoga for Real Life is an easy to use guide, packed full of yoga advice and insights designed to give the reader the confidence to deal with life's everyday challenges - and really make a positive change.

It's not hard to see why she is in such demand - she offers strategies that anyone can try... queueing in the supermarket, sitting in traffic or waiting for the computer to do its thing.' Sunday Times 'Yoga's Nigella Lawson' Evening Standard 'Meditation and exercise tips based on Kundalini, a yoga genre that works on your inner energy centres... Plenty of practical ideas to reduce stress.' Scotsman 'Maya Fiennes is one of the true examples of a pioneer in the field of yoga.'
