The Healing Path of Yoga - by Nischala Joy Devi, Foreword by Dean Ornish M.D.
Paperback, 238 Pages
Stress is now considered the foremost contributor to poor health and a major factor in causing heart disease, cancer, and a myriad of chronic and acute diseases. This book will make yoga a fundamental part of your quest for wellness and well-being, whether you are a novice or a current partitioner.
Nischala Joy Devi, a pioneer in the field of alternative healing and a renowned yoga expert, has spent years helping people realize the healthful and stress-controlling benefits of yoga. In 1982 she developed yoga-based retreats for Dr. Michael Lerner's now famous Commonweal Cancer Help Program. That same year Dr. Dean Ornish asked her to create a program of yoga practices for patients suffering from heart disease. Yoga's contribution to the success of both programs has been astounding.
Devi shares her years of experience working with the healthful benefits of yoga, teaching visualizations, breathwork, and meditation, as well as providing the classic steps and illustrated instructions for yoga's physical poses. The Healing Path of Yoga uses timeless Indian-based yoga techniques and philosophy, along with Devi's lifestyle-altering regimen, to create one extraordinary program with the power to rejuvenate and heal.
The Healing Path of Yoga presents the key to:
• Preventing disease and stress in healthy people
• Aiding in recovery from heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses
• Physical conditioning and weight loss
• Deep, healing relaxation techniques
• Heightened overall wellness of body, mind, and spirit
