blurb

Yoga & Stress Management by Acharya Yatendra is a guide to inculcating the habit of practicing yoga in our daily lives. It emphatically talks about the importance of incorporating yogic techniques in our routine to cope with the stress that has been taking a huge toll on our wellness.

With the modern lifestyle attracting us with its set of fancies and we giving in to its charm, our lives are increasingly getting faster, fuller, and surprisingly, dull! Stress is taking us under its clutches, sucking vibrancy out of us, only to leave us despaired. No wonder why our present age is also referred to as ‘Age of Anxiety.’ It is high time that we realize the importance of setting ourselves free of stress. According to the author, “The powerful antidote to the stresses of modern-day life can only be a unique technique which unites body, mind, and spirit.” And that technique is Yoga which has its roots in India.

The book contains steps to remove stress from our lives choking on the modern lifestyle. It briefly talks about categories of stress and also emphasizes the value of positive stress. It presents us with steps for gracious living, explanations behind different yogic techniques for conditioning of the mind, and including the necessary diet for sustainable living. The writing style has been kept quite simple, practical, and to the point. There are a few examples quoted to stress the points but I found them inadequate.

In all, it is a light read. If one wishes to read about maintaining a healthy lifestyle, one may pick it up.

MY RATING: 3/ 5

  1. It’s the age of Anxiety, the scars and wounds in a life where we run against the clock. Yoga and meditation enshrined in our rich Indian tradition is priceless and helps the soul and body to be one. Your review and direct in a relatable language, Khyati.
