Reviews

'Yoga and Multiple Sclerosis looks like many other Iyengar-based books: detailed instructions, many photos, adaptations, and of course, props. The magic is McLean's uses of his embodied theater sensibility to bring the reader into the lived experience of MS. What a treasure for students and professionals to glimpse the ups and downs of yoga and MS in a way that breathes life into a powerful guide that's not just for MS, but every yoga practice.'
