"Encompasses every aspect of using yoga with MS, no matter where your disease has taken you... I recommend this book as a worthwhile purchase to use to increase our abilities to move throughout days better and take care of our bodies to make living with MS less stressful."--MS World
"...An invaluable book that will serve the MS population and the people who work with them on their path to improved health... A useful refresher for those immersed in the field and an introduction and addition to hands-on training for those interested in the realm of therapeutic yoga."--LA Yoga Magazine
"Ideal for the non-specialist general reader, Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis describes how yoga works. The text is enhanced with photographs and descriptions of each yoga pose... An important acquisition for personal and community libraries, Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis is especially recommended for those who are experiencing symptoms across the MS spectrum."--Midwest Book Review
"For decades, yoga teachers all over the United States have acknowledged the work of Eric Small as the ultimate in helping them work with their own students with MS. No doubt they are now celebrating because Small and long-time yoga student and back expert Loren Fishman, MD, have produced the definitive book on the topic. Not only does this book offer insight into yoga practice and self-transformation for those living with MS, it also offers something even more important: hope. To say this book will become a classic is an understatement." --Judith Hanson Lasater, PhD, PT, yoga teacher since 1971, and author of six books on yoga (Judith "Lasater PhD, PT" "PhD, PT, yoga teacher since 1971, and author of six books on yoga" 20100503)

He holds a Junior Intermediate Level Three Certificate from the B.K.S. Iyengar Institute in Puna, India. Eric also conducts teacher training workshops in therapeutic yoga around the United States.
With the support of the Southern California Chapter of the MS Society the Eric Small Yoga Program has, for the past five years, served hundreds of clients at 13 different sites and is part of the regular program offered at the Marilyn Hilton Achievement Center for the Southern California Chapter of the MS Society, at UCLA. His work was recognized in 1999 with the Hope For MS Award and in 2001 by his induction into the National MS Society Volunteer Hall of Fame. He was the 2002 Dorothy Corwin Spirit of Life Award recipient for Outstanding Volunteer Service to MS patients, presented at the MS Dinner of Champions on September 17, 2002.
I was disappointed with this book relating to MS. The yoga asanas are not realistic for someone with this illness. Not what I was looking or hoping for.Published 6 days ago by Christine J. Nagy
Excellent book written by both a medical doctor and a patient, both experts in this topic.

THis book concentrated MORE on those wheelchair bound with the exercises. That is why it only receives 3 starts. It IS a good book thoughPublished 11 months ago by Nancy Jones
