Practicing a sport is not for everyone. But yoga, yes! Five minutes of yoga a day keeps the physio away forever!

First a runner, Mireille Massé discovered the benefits of yoga when injuries forced her to slow down. It turned out to be such a passion that she decided to become a yoga teacher.

Motivation and inspiration are at the heart of this book, which is designed for all sportsmen and –women, addicts as well as weekend athletes. The author explains the origins an evolution of this discipline, the different branches and trends, and lists its many benefits both on the body and the mind: fitness maintenance, improved joint flexibility, muscle strengthening, breathing control, stress management, to name but a few. Moreover, unlike most sports that only solicit part of the body, yoga mobilizes the whole body in a unification effort. Finally, it can be undertaken regardless of physical condition and age. It is never too late to get started!

This is an informative and very comprehensive book on yoga. Different routines are offered with several levels of difficulty, making them accessible to everyone and everywhere. Its strongest point might be its resolutely stimulating tone, as if you had a trainer at home. In a world with a growing popularity and democratization of yoga a practical guide for both initiates and those who wish to indulge in yoga was needed..

Running coach, Mireille Massé has followed specific accredited training for runners and sportsmen. Mireille has been teaching yoga for sportsmen for over 5 years, as well as collaborating on several blogs and giving lectures at many sports events and yogist gatherings. In the spring of 2018, she collaborated to Jean-Yves Cloutier’s book Marcher au bon rythme.
