Helen Wharton, BellaOnline editor, reviewed the ebook version and here are her comments included with permission:
"...your book is a beautiful gift that has come to me to read at a time when I need it most. I have been wanting to try yoga for many years, but can't bring myself to go to a class with strangers. And, I'm 57 and starting to experience problems with loss of balance. Just not as young and steady as I used to be. So THANK-YOU for the yoga instruction. The poses seem to be ones that I can do at home. But, I think the most beautiful part of your book is the meditation and virtues. Meditation is also something that I have been wanting to do, but again, just can't get motivated to add another thing to my list of things to do. Your book is the perfect example of "when the student is ready, the teacher will appear." Thank-you so much for asking me to read it, you have changed my life."
