Book Review - Yoga Wisdom at Work
About the Book
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. But beyond that, this book is an invitation to use all of yoga’s teachings to cultivate the spark of the divine that dwells within each of us.
My Take on the Book
This is a type of book that offers hope to those who need it and it shares it in such a way you will not expect. The writing of this is forthright and the authors are honest and down-to-earth in their assessment and teaching. What was refreshing was the positive tone that flowed throughout the entire book. While I am not a person who has done much yoga in my life, I know people that do and they have educated me on numerous concepts that are shared in yoga and after reading this I see the parallels that the author is sharing with the reader, and they make sense.
While this book will not teach you how to use the downward dog pose to be a better leader, it will help you to refocus and re-frame to be able to better lead a meaningful life. Through numerous stories and examples, you will quickly find yourself engrossed in the story itself and by the end you will be asking for more, or left wanting to re-read the book yet again.
