Short Description:
   Yoga's Ancient Wisdom Can Transform Your Work Life Everyone knows that yoga helps reduce stress and increase the body's flexibility and strength. But the physical aspects barely scratch the surface of yoga's transformative powers. The poses are only one part of a larger philosophy offering profound insights for confronting the complexities of daily life. Yoga can help you remain centered, compassionate, positive, and sane every hour of the day—especially those between nine and five. This unprecedented guide shows how practicing the full range of yogic concepts—the traditional "Eight Limbs of Yoga"—leads to a productive, creative, and energizing work environment and features examples from professions like law enforcement, teaching, banking, filmmaking, medicine, and many more.

"Filled with personal insights and stories that carry yoga into the world of daily decision making.... It is wonderful to see the foundations of practice brought to life in such a confident, sincere, and thoughtful way." —Pandit Rajmani Tuganait, Chairman and spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute "Maren and Jamie show that yoga is not just about poses—the practice is about creating the stillness of mind that will allow you do the work you were meant to do. Seriously, read this book!" —Russell Simmons, cofounder of Def Jam "The [Showkeirs] bring the deepest teachings of yoga alive by showing exactly how to bring our yoga—and our best selves—into the world." —Judith Lasater, PhD, author of Relax and Renew: Restful Yoga for Stressful Times

June 1, 2013

Rather than framing yoga as merely a physical practice, the Showkeirs (Maren is coauthor, Authentic Conversations) elaborate on the Eight Limbs of Yoga, or the spiritual foundations for living a healthy life. The authors propose cultivating a more productive work environment by encouraging compassion, committing to the truth, letting go of yearning, and fostering gratitude. Yoga terminology and quotes by Eastern philosophers abound. VERDICT Recommended for those who are well acquainted with yoga and who want to bring more spirituality to their practice.
