Editorial Reviews

Review

"Learn to sit in contemplative practice longer and translate simple yoga movements into creating ease in daily, routine tasks like sitting at a desk. Jean Erlbaum's well-informed book is straightforward and clear, with just enough detail for nonexperts." (Yoga Journal)

"A very useful book, which could benefit many who aren’t confident about attending formal yoga classes, yet who need help dealing with the inevitable aches and pains. I was pleased to see that the figures in the illustrations resemble normal people of various ages, both sexes, a variety of races, and with normal body types." (Wildmind Buddhist Meditation)

"A true blessing for everyone who has a body." (Melissa Myozen Blacker, guiding teacher, Boundless Way Zen, co-editor, The Book of Mu)

"Not only do my eyes see the beauty in this much-needed book for meditators and anyone who sits on any chair, my heart is happy that we finally have this well-mapped-out guide. Thank you Jean!" (Lakshmi Voelker, founder of Lakshmi Voelker Chair Yoga)

"Whether you spend your days in the temple or in the boardroom, Sit with Less Pain is the perfect companion guide to remaining comfortable and pain-free. A must-have for everybody who sits!" (Willa Miller, coauthor of The Arts of Contemplative Care)

"This book should be required reading for all meditators to nourish and protect our bodies as we do the physically demanding (and rewarding) work of meditation." (David Rynick, author of This Truth Never Fails)

"For one whose decade long yoga practice was what first offered the invitation into the world of meditation, I am grateful to Jean Erlbaum for this wonderful and beautiful book that demonstrates, with superb illustrations, the intricate connections of the body mind." (Barbara Bonner, author of Inspiring Generosity)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love this book! I teach gentle, senior and chair yoga and this book has become my "go to" resource for new ideas.

I especially like the back section with specific sequencing for chair classes with special focus on topics such as shoulders, hips et cetera. It's very easy to go back and review directions for
teaching each pose. The drawings work well to show pose and the writing is clear and concise.

I find this an invaluable resource and highly recommend it to teachers of gentle and chair yoga.
