Yet, the consistent message from all these teachers is to maintain your own daily practice – honor your sadhana. Finding and committing yourself to either a particular yogic tradition’s daily discipline or finding the confidence and dedication to create your own yoga practice can be both daunting and challenging to new yoga students while it eventually becomes an essential part of every day for people with an established practice. In Sharing Sadhana, the author provides an overview and outline of what yoga sadhana means within western yoga culture and what it means to prominent and experienced yoga teachers and therapists in the western yoga world. She interviews yoga teachers such as Richard Miller, Nischala Joy Devi, Leslie Kaminoff and other prominent practitioners about their views, advice, and experience of sadhana and what it means to them in their personal daily lives and in their teaching. The book offers a means for these experienced practitioners to share information about their own development of sadhana, to provide insights into their own personal yoga journey as well as sadhana guidance and inspiration to new and seasoned yoga practitioners. It includes the challenges they have faced on their yoga journey and how they have overcome those barriers; their advice to other yoga practitioners; and how their yoga practice has changed over time.

The medicine of the 20th century was about the treatment of illness. The medicine of the 21st century is about wellness. Crossing the Healing Zone advances the new concepts of the emerging frontiers of integrative medicine, bringing together Eastern and Western healing traditions and merging body, mind, and spirit in a Jungian perspective. The journey through the Healing Zone that Dr. Bedi proposes is guided by archetypes and myths, active imagination, dreams and synchronicities, and the neuroplastic mysteries of our complex physical reality. The Healing Zone can be described in many ways—as the fourth dimension of consciousness, as quantum consciousness, as Jung’s “psychoid space,” as the Buddhist Third Way, or as the “gap” between the ego and the soul. Here, we can access all three areas of the triune brain—reptilian, limbic, and neocortical—all of which must be addressed in order to achieve full integration and healing. The Healing Zone is a bridge between the ego and the soul—a bridge that we can cross to reach the healing wisdom of the universe. Dr. Bedi outlines how to work with psychological and soul processes in moving from illness to wellness, and provides practical methods and techniques that can help readers access and engage the Healing Zone. The book contains informative and visual guidelines and practices that can help us create and manage our own personal wellness programs and become full and active partners in our own journeys from illness to wellness.

An inspiring collection of essays that reveal the healing power of yoga, Survivors on the Yoga Mat is an ideal companion for trauma survivors and yoga teachers alike. Weaving together stories from her classes, travels, and workshops, author Becky Thompson shows the brave and unique ways that survivors approach yoga: the creative ways that they practice, the challenges they face, and the transformative experiences they discover. Thompson skillfully draws connections between yoga and social-justice activism, demonstrating how a trauma-sensitive approach to yoga makes room for all of us—across race, class, gender, religion and nationality. Survivors on the Yoga Mat offers stories, reflections, and meditations for people who are healing from a wide range of traumas—sexual abuse, accidents, child abuse, war, illnesses, incarceration, and other injuries. The book consists of 90 true stories—alternately funny, surprising, and irreverent—that together provide a roadmap for survivors on their journey to wholeness. Organized into six sections, the book explores the challenges of beginning a yoga practice; the unique strengths of trauma survivors; the circuitous path of healing; yoga's value as a lifelong practice; the special role of teachers; and the potential of yoga as an avenue for activism. Also included is a description of Pantajali's Eight Limbs of Yoga, a list of resources, an appendix explaining the different styles of yoga, and a beautiful photo glossary with over 100 photos of the yoga postures mentioned in the book.
