I began writing in earnest five years ago and have recently completed my first fiction novel, "Finding Warrior Pose". A few incidents stand out in my mind as being influential in my decision to write a book. In my book "Finding Warrior Pose," I write about many things, including travel (I’ve been to over 30 countries, lived in Saudi Arabia and India), yoga and more.
Many women I know love yoga because it is low impact, but still a great work-out. It also helps them manage their weight, relieve stress and increase flexibility. If you are yet to start a yoga routine, now is the time. However, before you hit the yoga academy in earnest, here are some beneficial poses to learn first. You can even practice them at home before making it into the yoga studio. Some of the top poses good for women are:

This pose will strengthen your back, core, arms, shoulders and quadriceps.
This pose is intended to strengthen the upper body, and entails straightening the top section of your body by elevating it. Thisreduces stress by working on the lower abdomen, particularly the colon.
The ancient art of Yoga has been steeped in secrecy for centuries. But, now, the ancient secrets of Yoga are revealed to the readers in the form of a fiction novel. “Finding Warrior Pose,” a new novel by Priya Doty, is the next best thing to a fantasy novel.
