My parents gave me some Amazon credits for my birthday and the books just arrived.

They include the highly recommended light on yoga - apparently one of the classic texts on the subject. [I love the described benefits of some of the poses which include "releases groins" - brace yourselves girls!]

I have been trying to get back into my yoga practice for ages because despite stopping drinking I am still way too overweight and because of a big operation years ago my back is getting stiffer and stiffer by the day.

Without some serious effort I will end up an immobile blob of fat within weeks!
