In Yoga Mind, Peaceful Mind, two seasoned yoga teachers present gentle meditations to help you overcome anxiety and stress so you can live a more enjoyable life. Furthermore, the book’s emphasis on yoga’s contemplativetradition, rather than postures (or, asanas), makes it perfect for people from all walks of life, including those with physical disabilities.
In the book, you’ll find 160 powerful, daily meditations that are filled with thoughtful, touching insights. Each of the meditations provides an inspirational quote, a discussion of teachings and instructions from the yoga tradition, and affirmations to remember and live by every day. If you are ready to overcome anxiety and stress and take back your life, the simple practices in this book will help you achieve true peace of mind.
