Overview

Live in accordance with nature and your soul

Our ancestors adhered to the daily, seasonal, and yearly rhythms of nature by necessity, but modern life overrides these cycles, compromising women’s health and happiness. In this book, Sara Avant Stover shows how simple, natural, and refreshingly accessible practices can minimize stress and put us back in sync with our own cycles and those of nature. When we honor spring’s seedlings, summer’s vibrancy, fall’s harvest, and winter’s quietude, we harmonize our inner and outer worlds. Sara’s recommendations nurture the body, invigorate the mind, and lift the spirit. Illustrated yin and yang yoga sequences, one-day season-specific retreats, enticing recipes, and innovative self-reflection techniques make it easy to reconnect with the essential.

Yoga Journal

“Filled with health-promoting delight, pleasure, and truth. Just lovely.”
Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“In The Way of the Happy Woman, Sara Avant Stover offers hundreds of baby steps — simple yet deceptively profound — toward living a happier, healthier, more balanced life. Even a few of these, practiced regularly, could be transformational. Highly recommended!”
Timothy McCall, MD, medical editor of Yoga Journal and author of Yoga as Medicine

“Rest in the nest of this beautiFULL book, and allow it to soak in and beam its wisdom to you. Your way is that of the happy woman, and these words will awaken, inspire, and deeply support you on your way-finding.”
SARK, artist, creative fountain, and author of Glad No Matter What

“This lovely, born-of-experience book is a primer on how to live in accord with the energies of the natural world. Clear and thoughtful, it will help you remember that even amid the demands of work, school, family, and incessant email, you’re still a goddess.”
Susan Piver, author of The Wisdom of a Broken Heart and The Hard Questions

Library Journal
In an effort to help women find happiness from the inside, freelance writer and yoga teacher Stover offers a wide range of practices to help readers simplify, slow down, and be in tune with natural cycles. She pulls primarily from the mental and physical practices of yoga and meditation to offer suggestions on healing the mind, body, and spirit. The material is organized around the seasons of the year and includes ideas such as eating in-season fruits and vegetables, savoring the colors and smells of the outdoors, and performing moon rituals. More than that, the book offers a path toward loving oneself. A winner of a read for all those open to New Age practices and thought.
