This is the Yoga that gives peace from all pain – Bhagavad Gita
This is a book about yoga, a holistic system for crating and sustaining balance and harmony on all the levels of our being: body, mind, emotions and spirit. It’s about yoga’s boundless potential for healing for bringing about beneficial change on all these levels.
I’ve called it The Healing Power of Yoga because throughout my life yoga has proved its transformative healing power, most profoundly in 1993, when I had breast cancer. That experience left me with a deeper trust in the power of yoga to help us to face our challenges, and to heal ourselves.
The book draws on my experience of yoga, and on my work with others who are dealing with life-changing illness, to explore how the yoga practices of body movement, breathing, relaxation and meditation contribute to healing. The simple yet powerful technique I describe can be practiced by everyone, for inner strength and inner peace.
Julie Friedeberger gently invites us to explore and experience for ourselves the healing practices of yoga. Her book is a journey of rediscovery of what we all once knew-a trustful relationship to the Source of our Being.
