More and more people are seeking vacations that are relaxing rather than chaotic, that help them renew their sense of health rather than keep them running frantically from sight to sight. Yoga Vacations highlights over 100 different vacation centers and retreats for both the beginner and advanced yoga practitioner. It includes detailed, thoughtfully written entries providing information on teachers' styles and philosophies, recommended levels of experience, and activities and services, as well as the basics on accommodations, meals, and fees. The author, a 15-year yoga instructor, makes a distinction between yoga vacations and retreats to help readers customize their perfect getaway. Some destinations are strictly retreats - places for quiet, in-depth yoga study - while the vacation settings listed allow free time for nearby shopping and sightseeing.

Reminiscent of recent travel books that feature "change-your-life" vacations, this book specifically targets yoga retreats across the world. Cunningham, who has been offering yoga vacations for many years, has selected what she considers the best international yoga vacations, as well as retreats that offer accommodations and meals. The entries are arranged geographically by country and state; and each entry includes several pages of informationAlike when the retreat or vacation is offered (some are only a specific week each year) and what style of yoga is followed. Very detailed information is provided on student criteria, disability access, number of participants possible, accommodations, meals, fees, and daily schedules. The descriptions are well written and somewhat interesting, but this book is only going to find a limited audience among people looking for this kind of vacation. Buy for larger public libraries where yoga books and "change-your-life" travel books are popular.AAlison Hopkins, Queens Borough P.L., Briarwood, NY
