RETIRED Kingscliff yoga teacher Lillian Toby has compiled proven tips on how to negotiate stress into a self-published book, The Key To Relaxed Living.

Lillian taught yoga for three decades and relaxation classes as well for 20 of those years in Sydney, before moving to the Northern Rivers in 1990.

The 82-year-old said feedback from students helped show her what strategies really worked to help maintain balance and harmony in your life.

It's this tried and tested information she's compiled in the book which includes mental and physical exercises including breathing, concentration, meditation and eye-movements.

"Every chapter is a key to opening the door to those areas of your lives where you can discover how to ease or even eliminate unnecessary tensions from your daily stress loads, which perhaps you never knew existed," Lillian said.

"People need to realise that if you've got a physical problem and you're uptight, it's a mental problem as well," Lillian said.

"If you've got flexibility of the mind you've got flexibility of the body."

Lillian wrote the book years ago but was only recently convinced by her daughter-in-law to publish it. She said the information was even more relevant today given the accelerating pace of life.

Lillian said after launching her book at Tweed Heads library in August, she had received tremendous feedback from readers, including her GP.
