While both of these books include “yoga” in the title, they contain diverse messages, written for different audiences. Psychotherapist/yoga teacher Byron (director, Welkin YogaLife Inst.) has found that comprehensive yoga therapy can correct imbalances and help to harness artistic personal resources. She presents a variety of exercises and intention-setting practices that assist in everything from purifying one’s environment and refining the senses to accessing creative potential and busting out of one’s cocoons.Klein’s (sociology & women’s studies, Moorpark Coll., CA) work challenges the corporate view of yoga as a practice for the beautiful and fit. Stories from 30 women of different races, ethnicities, gender identity, age, and ability level portray how yoga has helped them battle cancer, accept their bodies, find refuge from the world, and fight addiction. Included are “thought starters” at the end of each chapter, which ask readers to reflect on and personalize the message. VERDICTYoga for the Creative Soul would work well for seasoned yogis who want to hone their practice with an artistic bent, whileYoga Rising provides inspiring reading for all women regardless of their workout proclivities. – Library Journal
