This book is well written and illustrated and offers sound guidelines for improving posture, flexibility and relaxation skills. Four of the case histories included are those of "gentle yoga" program participants with MS. However, caution must be taken. Yoga can be rewarding and relaxing, but it is preferable to learn its techniques and philosophy from a trained instructor. The authors do include cautionary reminders (some postures, for instance, are not recommended for people with back problems), but it is important to consult with your physician or therapist before beginning any exercise program. Available for $11.95 spiral bound or $8.95 paperback plus $2.25 shipping and handling by check only from Celestial Arts, P.O. Box 7327, Berkeley, California, 94707 (415) 524-1801.
