Presenting poses for anyone who spends way too much time waiting!
Waiting is a gift. Be glad when you’re stuck in traffic or put on hold. Be grateful when the waiting room is full. Give thanks to the date that never shows up on time. Why? Because now you can turn mindless waiting into moments of mindfulness with stretches and poses to build up your strength, poise, and flexibility.
From ardha chandrasana at the traffic lights to simhasana in a traffic jam, this book introduces you to yoga—in real-life situations. Judith Stoletzky aligns helpful tips and humorous advice with precise instructions. You don’t need a yoga studio, fancy yoga pants, or even a yoga mat to practice yoga. All you need is normal, everyday life and a little bad timing. After a while, you’ll develop an amazing attitude both inside and out!
Paired with Markus Abele’s photography, these 30+ yoga poses will give you something to do with all that extra time spent waiting around. Yoga While You Wait has the ideal pose for every pointless pause—from beginner to experienced and for every body and level of flexibility. You might even find yourself looking forward to the wait!
Judith Stoletzky is an award-winning creative director, communication designer, copywriter, and author. She splits her time between Hamburg, Germany, and Ottawa, Canada. She develops concepts for advertising, magazines, and books. She is always searching for the funny in the serious, the crazy in the rational, and the quirky in the normal. She has published four imaginative books, which are humorously centered around the pursuit of happiness—one way or another: obsessively cooking with an Italian Chef, following Picasso’s footsteps at the Côte d’Azur and enjoying french cuisine with the Mafia, baking sourdough bread, and patiently doing Yoga While You Wait.
