‘Doing yoga with Maya is inspirational, energising, sexy and it gives me joy. At the same time it quiets my mind and fills me with peace.’ Elle Macpherson
The effervescent, charismatic Maya Fiennes is for relaxation and yoga what Nigella Lawson has become for food and cookery. In Yoga for Real Life, she has written a book aimed at bringing yoga principles into all aspects of your everyday life. It is full of yoga tips, exercises and wisdom.
Maya Fiennes believes passionately that yoga can be enjoyed by everyone, young and old. Her unique style of yoga and meditation for modern living is based on Kundalini yoga, which works on inner energy centres (‘Chakras’), combining poses, breathing, chanting and meditation for a full mind-body workout. Both deeply enjoyable and uplifting, it has made her one of the most in-demand yoga instructors around.
Whether you’re fit and flexible or haven’t sat cross-legged since childhood, Maya’s new book is easy to use, packed full of yoga advice and insights designed especially to give the reader the confidence to deal with life’s everyday challenges – and really make a positive change.
Drawing on her own inspiring story, Maya Fiennes shares her enthusiasm for the Kundalini method and explains how it can underpin a healthy, happy life. From de-stressing and dealing with matters of the heart, to unlocking creative potential and coping with children, families and aging, Yoga for Real Life is an indispensable guide, illustrated with the photography of David ‘Jamie Oliver’ Loftus, to getting the most from your daily life, for the rest of your life. There has quite simply never been a yoga book like this before.
