A friend of mine and I were looking at some of the new yoga books and this one just popped out at us. we do yoga about 4 nights a week and we needed some new material. Yoga Turns Back the Clock was a amazing because it showed us a whole new perspective on yoga and showed us how it can be used to tone, to burn fat, or best of all to look younger. We have been using the book for only a few weeks but we think that it is best yoga book we have bought in a while. we love the approach and the style. it is also great for beginners, like us, who are not as flexible as many other yoga books expect you to be. Yoga Turns BAck the CLock challenges us without making us get into positions that we could not even begin to. i love this book and suggest it for anyone who likes doing yoga or wants to start.

This book is incredible- it explains the benefits, pose by pose, and makes the reader want to take better care of him/herself starting yesterday. Notice how good SHE looks! Also, the transformations that happen with the people who regularly do her yoga program are stunning. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to age gracefully, manage stress, or transform their body to a level of fitness & flexibility they never thought possible.

I have been taking Glenda's yoga class for the past 2 years and from day 1 I have been impressed with her. She is amazing. She's beautiful, and toned and in awesome shape. All I can say at age 29 is, I hope I look half as good as she does when I reach her age. To all of those individuals who are younger, don't overlook this book because you think its for the older generation. Glenda has helped me lose weight, become the most toned I've ever been, and feel the best I've ever felt. The only down side to getting the book is that you can't hear her incredibly soothing voice in your home. Yoga has changed my life. And as long as I'm able, I will practice this method. This book gives you a good demonstration of what she teaches in her classes and I highly recommend it to people of all ages.

I work in an office everyday from nine in the morning to six at night and when i get home the only thing I think about is getting into some confortable clothes and settling down. But lately I have been noticing how tired I am all day. A friend suggested I start doing yoga like her. I am not a big gym fan so I went to bookstore and I found Glenda's book. It is brand new- just came out in May. That night I went home a bit skeptical, but I started that evening anyway. I was amazed at how good it felt to be doing exercise again. Unlike most arerobis plans that have always made me more tired the yoga in Glenda's actually had me feeling looser, energized and more fit. It gives you a great sense of accomplishment. A week into it and I was hooked. I have been doing the program for about three weeks and must say that it is the best feeling. I am not feeling as tired at work and my husband even said that I look younger and happier. My teenage daughter has started doing the exercises at night with me and we are having a lot of fun. I just have to say thanks Glenda.

Glenda has been my yoga instructor since her practice began. I have experienced, first hand, her knowledge and respect for the human body, as well as the peace, patience, and poise she models to each class. She is a "fireball"; the perfect combination of strength, and softness. All you have to do is follow her guide to the age-old secret of Yoga, and before you know it, you'll be in shape!! If you are not able to attend her classes, or if you just want to jazz up your own yoga practice, or even if you are totally new to Yoga, this book is meant for you! You will be inspired by her incredible form, swept away by the beautiful view, and enlightened by the detailed descriptions, and explanations of all of the healing qualities of Yoga. Burn a candle, take some deep breaths, and follow Glenda's powerful routine. Buy this book, and you will be drinking from the fountain of youth!!

i have to say that with all the yoga stuff floating around i have tried my share of the stretching, aerobics and all the rest that have come out and nothing has come close to Glenda Twining's Yoga Turns Back the Clock. It not only shows you minute details it follows a process that allows you to develope with the program. so many of the new fad yoga workouts leaves you stretched too thin, because you are trying to get into positions that are awkward and almost impossible for anyone our age. Glenda gives yoga a whole new twist (haha) and you not only feel better but you start to see a change in your appearance. it is incredible. i can't wait for Glenda's next book.

This is THE yoga book I have been waiting for! Glenda has taken a Western approach to typical yoga postures and the result is amazing.....the way the program makes you feel and look younger..... in my humble opinion.... is all the stretches to the spine......which will totally revitalize your energy levels to make you feel years younger....and Glenda is actually 51 years old so she has earned her right to tell the rest of us how to do it....I don't want a 30 year old telling me how to get younger....hello...PLEASE....I want someone that is already there and looks like this gorgeous creature to tell me and inspire me.....
