Review

"Though dedicated yogis may already be doing many of these straightforward poses, I found making the connection between the seasonal tasks I'm doing and the yoga poses that help made me feel enthused to actually do them, which is half the battle in staying fit and strong."
—The North Coast Journal

"Gardener’s Yoga will appeal to new and existing gardener yogis, as well as to yoga teachers who are looking for inspiration in crafting seasonal flows."
New York Botanical Gardens: Plant Talk Blog

I love to garden and I have fibromyalgia. This book has yoga that I can do.

She even shows how to modify "Downward Facing Dog" so that now I can do it.

Gardening and yoga do go together and this is the only book I have found that

combines the two. The illustrations are outstandingly beautiful. If this author wrote another yoga book for the very beginner, I would buy it. I will also look for books with the same illustrator. This is not for someone who regularyly practices yoga - It is for somone who wants to incorporate yoga into their life but they are not flexible enough for a beginner tape. It is also a routine in short segments. I want to get outside to "play" not spend an hour missing a sunny morning. This book has moves to do before you go outside, moves during your gardening and moves after. THANK YOU VERONICA FOR THIS LOVELY BOOK! ---Peggy

"Gardener's Yoga" is a charming little book. The author's introduction explains how she came to relate gardening and yoga. There are three main sections: breaking ground, planting seeds, and harvest time. Each section has a suggested series of poses to help the gardener relax and stretch for that aspect of gardening. Each pose is described on a single page with helpful tips, facing an illustration of the pose with a watercolor garden scenes. In addition, there is a section on using the garden to enhance your yoga. This section focuses more on the beauty and scent of the garden rather than eating your veggies.

Gardener’s Yoga - Bend & Stretch, Dig & Grow. Veronica D’Orazio, Sasquatch Books.
Essentially, this delightful little manual demonstrates how yoga can help combat the common aches and pains associated with otherwise pleasurable gardening chores.
In this cheerfully illustrated handbook, the author suggests a series of yoga poses that help prepare our bodies for our favorite hobby, protect our limbs from surprising strains, and soothe our muscles after our outdoor work has taken its physical toll.
For both men and women, the objective is to foster awareness how breathing, posture, and deliberate flowing movement can benefit the gardener. For those who have never practiced yoga before, this publication, based upon twenty-one simple poses, also serves as a general introduction to yoga itself.
When Veronica D’Orazio felt her back go out after a strenuous week of weeding, she decided to soothe her sore muscles with yoga. That inspired her to create a yoga program that targets the body’s stress, helps prevent injury, and bolsters strength and flexibility.
Prior to beginning a gardening chore, the reader is encouraged to Break Ground. This group of yoga poses gently warms up the spine and prepares the lower limbs for the day’s work
For the actual outdoor chores, aka Planting Seeds, the author suggests poses that emphasize breathing and balance to reduce body tension and soreness.
In the last section titled Harvest Time, the focus is on poses for relaxation and elongating tired muscles to restore and unwind the body.
A valuable addition to this publication is a chart that readers can consult when seeking guidance to cure specific pain. Seven body parts that are most vulnerable to discomfort are cross-referenced with specific yoga poses that offer relief.

This is a terrific little book ~ but its not just for gardeners! It goes through the various poses as they can be used as you garden...but one of the best parts is a table in the back of the book that lists various poses and the parts of the body they benefit. Its small size makes it great to take on a trip for practice away from home!

Bought several copies of this for gifts for my friends who garden, as well as a copy for myself. It's VERY good! As a relatively new gardener I am finding the exercises relevant and of value.
