The Yoga Lifestyle: Using the Flexitarian Method to Ease Stress, Find Balance, and Create a Healthy Life

Doron Hanoch. Llewelyn, $19.99 trade paper (408p) ISBN 978-0-7387-4866-5
Hanoch, a yoga instructor, nutrition consultant, and chef, outlines a lifestyle that expands upon the concept of flexitarian dieting (a primarily vegetarian diet that permits meat on occasion) with the goal of helping people lead healthy and stress-free lives. This program, which is also influenced by yoga traditions and meditation practices, can be tailored according to individual preference and personal growth. Divided into three parts, the book begins by covering program basics, lifestyle practices, and the role of ayurveda, which aims to achieve balance in the body and mind. Part two, the bulk of the book, details major elements of this lifestyle: yoga, breath and mind work, and nutrition. Included throughout are attractive pen-and-ink illustrations depicting the various poses. Lastly, Hanoch explains how to adapt the flexitarian method to a yoga practice, offering various tips on creating a healthy environment and reducing stress. It is clear from this thoughtful guide that Hanoch has the determination and know-how to introduce readers from all walks of life to a happier and healthier mode of living. (June)
