Yoga for Pain Relief shows you how to identify the specific muscle imbalances that cause YOUR pain and create a safe yoga practice to rebalance YOUR body.

  • Learn how to practice yoga safely and achieve superior results.
  • Design your own practice to align your neuromuscular system and achieve a pain-free body.
  • Learn to use three tools — asana practice, pranayama, and meditation — for powerful benefits.
  • Take charge of your own path to health and well-being.

“An excellent book for Yoga students, Yoga teachers and non-Yoga practitioners seeking relief from pain. Yoga for Pain Relief focuses on the key structural/pain issues facing this western culture. The healing activities to remedy the conditions are direct and easy to follow.” —Sudha, 30-year Yoga teacher

“Lee Albert has been a Kripalu Center phenom for many years. His one-on-work is widely known to generate dramatic results, often healing longstanding and chronic problems in a single session. His group programs are equally popular, teaching people how to produce these results on their own. Lee’s work is an important part of yoga’s evolution to better meet contemporary needs. I highly recommend this inviting, easy-to-read book to yoga students, yoga teachers and anyone seeking relief from pain.” — Richard Faulds, former President and CEO of Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, author of Kripalu Yoga: A Guide to Practice On and Off the Mat

“An informative, digestible, easy-to-read book with an important message about gentle and appropriate asana practice that’s very much needed nowadays. The anatomy and physiology information is quite useful for helping readers skillfully navigate yoga practices for pain relief; the
inclusion of soothing pranayama and meditation are valuable.” — Larissa Carlson, Yoga Teacher and Ayurvedic Practitioner

“I have not been a yoga devotee—but after reading this book I think I might be—I may even buy the book. My frustration with yoga has been the emphasis on poses, not on doing what I need it to do for me. I really like this approach because most of what I want is to take care of aches and pains from my sedentary life style.”
– S. Anne Fifer, DO, PhD
“An excellent book that makes it easy to access and pick up helpful information. Yoga students, yoga teachers and non-yoga practitioners alike will easily understand how pain works and realize they can DO something about it.”
– Jonathan Foust, former president Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health
