  • I have been into exercise and fitness all my life. I have participated in numerous exercise programs over the years such as circuit routines, boxing programs, karate aerobics, and various military kinds of exercise routines, Tabata routines, WOD programs, Tai Chi, Qigong and yoga. As a senior citizen I am always searching for ways to vary my exercise routines.

    I purchased this interesting 192 page soft cover (ExTension: The 20-minute-a-day Yoga-based program by Sam Dworkis with Peg Moline) for a bargain price on Amazon. Since I have included a large number of Yoga movements and exercises (Asanas) in my regular routine I found this book to be a good basic guide and review of the many Yoga postures (Asanas).

    This book is organized into three parts. The first part explains the ExTension program, how to use this book, the history behind ExTension, the ExTension principles and other material. The second part focuses on the actual ExTension Yoga poses, Sun-Salutations, standing poses and floor exercises. The final part had the conclusion, the appendix section and also shows several Yoga Asanas.

    If you are seeking a good basic guide and simple Yoga exercise program you may want to check out this book.

    Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Chair/Seated Tai Chi/Qigong/Yoga Stretching for seniors and the physically challenged)

  • I used to own it till it borrowed permanently. The original had heavier paper and colored photos, this is on lighter weight paper and black copy photos but, it is the info that is important. Just was surprised by the down graded quality.

  • As a yoga teacher, I am often asked to recommend practices, teachers, and books for general practice and for rehabilitating from debilities. ExTension: The 20-Minute-a-Day, Yoga-Based Program to Relax, Release & Rejuvenate the Average Stressed-Out Over-35-Year-Old- Body is the book that always comes to mind.

    Sam Dworkis is a yoga practitioner and therapist who rehabilitated himself from Multiple Sclerosis (I think, at any rate some physically debilitating disease). Several years ago, I took a yoga class from him at Kripalu, which was excellent and proved his rehabilitation of his body as well as his attitude. Sam said ExTension yoga isn't a cure but an effective rehabilitating practice that lets him recover physical skills and deal with his emotional and mental as well as ongoing physical challenges.

    His yoga practice descriptions and modifications in the book are EXCELLENT. Of course, it would be best to find a competent local yoga teacher to assist in developing your own modified practice. (Really, yoga isn't just for skinny, bendy people - yoga, when taught correctly, is a PERSONAL practice that accommodates the individual's body and needs.)

    As a yoga teacher, ExTension is the book and type of yoga practice I would recommend to anyone who wants to get on with living life to the fullest!

    Another book you might want to check out is Gary Krafsow's Yoga for Wellness: Healing with the Timeless Teachings of Viniyoga.

  • As an exercise physiologist and certified group fitness instructor/personal trainer I highly recommend this book. I have been hesitant to try yoga because of the contraindicated moves (called poses), however this book makes the necessary modifications so that the program is safe, yet still effective and fun. I have looked at many yoga books, and even more videos and classes and this is my favorite. I actually recorded (audio) myself reading some of the descriptions of the poses so that I could do the entire sequence with someone to "cue" me with the appropriate instructions!

  • I read this book after delving into "home yoga" for about 3 months. As is probably common, I was doing many of the poses only semi-correctly. There is a lot of reading to be done here, but there is incredible detail to help anyone elicit the poses correctly. Dworkis also divides each pose for beginner, moderate, and advanced. After a particularly tough day of running and 5 sets of tennis, I followed the poses and felt refreshed, relaxed, and loose afterwards. The workout is also really only 20 minutes (after learning the poses) and fun to complete as well as challenging when striving for a more advanced level.
