Purposeful and passionate, Dr. Rosenberg speaks with an authentic voice as to how live and lead a life with joy, and to have better connectedness with yourself and others. Her book takes the ancient philosophy and learnings of yoga and shows how they are highly relevant in today’s world. The book should resonate with even those who are most skeptical about yoga. It certainly resonated for me as a business owner, in helping me to better manage multiple projects and competing priorities. She makes the very complex learnings of yoga easy to read. The book is pragmatic and practical. Well done!
