Happy Joints: The Yoga For Arthritis Handbook-A Book Review

If you or someone you care about suffers from Arthritis, you’re going to want to check out this book review.

Kim McNeil (a fellow Yoga Therapist and trailblazer) and I follow each other on Instagram. When I saw that Kim had released a book, Happy Joints: The Yoga For Arthritis Handbook, I knew I had to buy a copy and check it out.


This is the story of how this book came to be in Kim’s own words:

I had heard too many stories about how arthritis had reduced the quality of life of my family, friends, and students. Their stories were too similar: they went undiagnosed for years, they felt older than their age, they had given up on the things they loved to do, and they were frustrated about how their bodies were no longer working for them. Their physical and mental health had gone down the tubes. When it came to yoga, they felt left out of classes and misunderstood by teachers. I knew yoga could help them feel better again. I heard the testimonials from my students and complete strangers about how yoga helped improve their lives. I saw the changes made in my client’s bodies. I decided there should be a book written just for them, something they could use at home every day to help empower them to manage their pain, stiffness, and depression. I got on the job of creating such a book.” ~Kim McNeil

    Thanks for the great book review! My Dad has arthritis that has progressively gotten worse. It is impacting his mobility and as a result it is impacting his love of animal/nature photography. It breaks my heart to watch the decline. I think this book could help. Please enter me in the contest to win a free copy. xoxo

    Thank you so much for telling me about this book, Nyk. I think the contents will help me a lot to manage the arthritis that is creeping up on me. I refuse to stop moving but need a little help.
