With more than 20 million yoga practitioners in the U.S., according to a 2012 Yoga Journal survey, it’s not surprising that a number of new titles focus on life on the mat. Healing Yoga: Proven Postures to Treat Twenty Common Ailments—from Backache to Bone Loss, Shoulder Pain to Bunions, and More by physiatrist Loren Fishman (Norton, Jan.) unites medical knowledge with the practice of yoga to address 20 common conditions. Detailed asana instructions and photos are included. From Llewellyn comes Yoga and Body Image, edited by Melanie Klein and Anna Guest-Jelley (Oct.), a collection of 25 personal stories written by everyone from physician Sara Gottfried, author of The Hormone Cure, to musician Alanis Morissette. Other fall titles include Tari Prinster’s Yoga for Cancer (Inner Traditions, Nov.) and Yoga for Warriors by Beryl Bender Birch (Sounds True, Oct.), geared toward military members and veterans. And looking ahead to March 2015, Do Your Om Thing by yoga instructor Rebecca Pacheco (HarperWave) demonstrates how to merge ancient yogic teachings with the contemporary world.
