Description 

Yoga for Nurses provides the means for nurses to support and enhance our ability to care for ourselves. It gives nurses information and strategies to deal with the physical and mental imperatives found in our daily work life.

--Jill Howie Esquivel, RN, PhD

The first yoga instruction book directed specifically toward nurses....Dr. Kollak...has written a book that assists nurses in taking time to care for themselves. The content in this book could be easily incorporated into a nursing inservice program as a means to prevent on-the-job, stress-related injuries."
