Surely you've heard it said a thousand times:
Healthy Body - Healthy Mind
Well, a great way to stay healthy and heal ourselves, is through the practice of yoga. Always remember to practice under the supervision of an instructor, but if you already have experience or want to go deeper into the world of this practice, a good, attractive guide can be a huge help.
YogaCards is a deck of cards in which the Asanas appear on one side, and the benefits and contraindications on the other. In addition, it comes with an Appendix of Healing Asanas for curing various illnesses and ailments, based on the experiences of Master BKS Iyengar, as indicated at the end of his book: "Light on Yoga".

Each illness or ailment indicates which cards are used for the corresponding healing series.
