From Library Journal

They’re all “subtle energy practices,” only 1 part in this wide-ranging encyclopedia. Editor Allison defines a body-mind discipline as “a coordinated program of action that tries to awaken and activate the links between body, mind, and soul.” This really nicely organized text is split into 16 segments, each of which begins with an introductory article discussing the disciplines included in that segment. Each discipline is explained by a certified professional in regard to history, fundamental principles, and possible advantages and hazards. Brief resource/reading lists follow every discipline description. Allison, a dancer, and teacher has performed a superb job of pulling together information on several 125 remedies. Whether or not you would like to understand about brain health or simply plain old yoga, this encyclopedia is a fantastic starting point.
