4.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this, but.... May 24, 2012
Format:Paperback
Very few books remain on my coffee table or next to my bed, but this
one will linger for sure. I like the practical application of this
book--yoga poses to lift my spirits, relieve a hangover, tighten
jiggly thighs...hence the reason it will stay in close reach! Yoga
Cures is written in a friendly, non-preachy tone and filled with lots
of solid information to improve your life.

I'd give this book 5 stars if it weren't for the paragraph format of
instructions. I find that referring back to the book while learning
and getting into a pose is a bit of a challenge--I easily lose my
place in the paragraph. Also, although beautiful and well
photographed, Stiles only gives you the final pose, so you must read
and decipher the rest yourself. Worthy of mentioning here is a
similar book series on my coffee table, "Yoga to the Rescue" by Amy
Luwis. These books, like Stiles' are very accessible and have poses
for everything from a jiggly butt to insomnia to a headache (and
wrinkles!). But what Stiles' leaves out, Luwis puts in (adding
clarity and ease of use for me): Instructions in a numbered list;
cute step-by-step illustrations of how to get into each pose; and an
easier version of each pose.

Anyone who wants to grow old more gracefully should consider
purchasing one of each--they're worthy of space on anyone's coffee
table!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Yoga book! April 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition with Audio/Video
I started practicing yoga on a regular basis at a studio about 6 years ago, but life took me in a different direction and my husband and I have moved around quite a bit since our first year of marriage. It was not easy or convenient for me to find a studio, especially when we lived in farm country in Wisconsin (not knocking- most beautiful place we have lived yet), so I started watching yoga videos. I stumbled upon Tara's iTunes podcasts and haven't looked back. I started using Tara Stiles' podcasts to help with a herniated disk I have, and then as my core strengthened, I began to do yoga more to lose weight and for flexibility. I lost almost 25 lbs doing her podcasts, and have started my day with a minimum of 20 minutes of yoga everyday for the last 4 years. So, when I was given the opportunity to review her new book, Yoga Cures, I was ecstatic, to say the least.

Yoga Cures has two parts. The first part has three chapters. It begins with a chapter on yoga, it's history, ect..., some of the basic poses, and important qualities and steps of yoga, complete with charts and awesome pictures. It then goes on to talk about the science behind yoga cures, and the ends with a chapter on breathing methods, and asks the reader to look at their lifestyle; decide what is healthy and what is not. Tara asks the reader to pick one thing- it can be a simple thing, and work on that first.

The rest of the book is dedicated to specific problems and yoga positions/routines which should, if done correctly, help alleviate that specific problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Her approach is very encouraging August 8, 2013
By Me
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like Tara Stile's approach, in that she comes off as very accepting in her teaching. I enjoy doing yoga and not because I'm trying to prove something or be a strict quinoa and kale eating vegan yogi. I just enjoy doing it, breathing, stretching my body and being supple and limber and calm. I enjoy it and that's why I do it about 5 days a week. I got some other books and dvd's and have to say, while they are good, I just really appreciate Tara's mellow, accept-yourself approach, it works for me, and keeps me feeling good about what I'm doing. Somehow or other, through the book, the soothing tone of her approach reaches out to me, and makes me feel extra relaxed and good about my yoga practice. I don't do the routines in the book much, I go through the pose library and enjoy doing most of them, as it feels right to me to do them. I'm sure Tara would approve, as I gather from her book, she'd probably say "If it feels right to do it that way, do it!" I especially like her emphasis on, not trying to push yourself into getting into every pose perfectly, where ever you're at in the moment is where you're meant to be. This is not to say I'm lazy, I certainly aim for proper form and I do an hour or more a day several days per week, it feels great. I just don't want to have to feel stressed about it, and that's the beauty of her approach!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good information, but... April 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just purchased this and while it has good information and routines, which is exactly what I wanted it for, the routines, I found that it didn't have much for certain ailments like migraines. I had hoped for some more for that and maybe ennui, but ah well. Still worth having, especially since I simply can't make up my own routines...

More About the Author

Named "Yoga Rebel" by the New York Times, Tara Stiles has inspired a wide audience around the world with her relatable approaches to yoga, meditation, exercise, awareness, nutrition, and everyday well-being. Tara is the founder and owner of Strala Yoga, widely known for its unpretentious, inclusive, and straightforward approach to yoga and meditation. She is the personal yoga instructor to Deepak Chopra, with whom she's collaborated to create several apps and DVDs, among other projects. Jane Fonda named Tara "the new face of fitness" and Vanity Fair declared her the "Coolest Yoga Instructor Ever."

Tara has been featured in Vogue, Elle, Harpers Bazaar, Lucky, InStyle, Esquire, Shape, Self, Fit Perez, and Fit Sugar, and profiled by The New York times, Times of India, The Times (UK), and Sweeden's Dagnes Nyheter. Tara is the designer and face of Reebok's yoga lifestyle line, launching globally in 2013. She is the author of two top selling books: Slim Calm Sexy Yoga and Yoga Cures and she has created several DVD series collaborations with Jane Fonda, Deepak Chopra, Tia Mowry, Brooklyn Decker and ELLE Magazine. She recently released an epic six hour complete yoga encyclopedia DVD series called This is Yoga. Recently, the Alliance For A Healthier Generation, Bill Clinton's initiative to combat childhood obesity, tapped Tara to help promote activity to the 14,000+ participating schools.

As Vanity Fair noted, "Tara Stiles has got to be the coolest yoga instructor ever."

"One of the things I like about her is her ability to make yoga accessible to people who might be scared of it or think it might be too esoteric,"
--Jane Fonda

"We are both nonconformists who have incurred the wrath of traditional yogis," Mr. Chopra said of Ms. Stiles, whom he now considers his personal instructor. "A lot of the criticism is resentment of her rapid success. I have been doing yoga for 30 years. I have had teachers of all kinds. Taking lessons from her has been more useful to me than taking yoga from anyone else.
--Deepak Chopra
