Originally from Riga, Latvia, Yoga practitioner, author and teacher Indra Devi (born Eugenie Peterson) lived to 102 years! She became fascinated with India at age 15 and set out to India in 1927 to become a disciple of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, after which time she moved to different parts of the world and taught Yoga. She comes from the renowned tradition of Mysore.

For thousands of years the culture of Yoga has existed in India, bringing to its practitioners remarkable health and spiritual well-being. In YOGA FOR AMERICANS Indra Devi has brought this ancient art to those who need it most: Americans, victims of a driving, competitive, tension-ridden society which suffers from its own superabundance. Here, in the richest country in the world, an alarming number of people still die from malnutrition and allied diseases; obesity, underactivity, and psychosomatic illness are commonplace; tension-inspired heart attacks are the worst killers of all.

Here is an invaluable book, packed with sound, proven advice, including many extras such as an introductory question-and-answer session, lavish illustrations, special diets, and constructive advice for those suffering from arthritis, asthma, and overweight.
