Treatment

Many of us chronic illness warriors can’t imagine our wellness routines without yoga. (And not just because the final pose is often savasana, aka a pose where you lie on the floor and there’s absolutely no shame if you happen to take a quick nap). For as popular as yoga is, people gravitate to it for all different reasons. Some see it as a form of exercise and way to strengthen their body, while others hit the mat for the dual mind-body bennies. An ancient practice rooted in India, yoga has lots of modern-day offshoots, from power to Bikram to—we're 100% not making this up—goat, naked, and laughing yoga. These practices typically include some combo of physical postures (aka asanas), breathing exercises, and meditation. Thanks to the many different approaches, it’s super easy to find a type of yoga that fits your style and needs. Whether you want to sweat it out in a heated room for 90 minutes, connect with your spiritual side and find relaxation, or just focus on the moves (and awesome music, if you're lucky), yoga’s worth a try.

Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice

NEW YORK TIMES, WALL STREET JOURNAL, AND USA TODAY BESTSELLER "This book will shine new light on your journey, ignite your practice with new power, inspire new possibilities for growth, and infuse your life with the grace and confidence you seek." —Baron Baptiste A little over a decade ago, Baron Baptiste published his seminal book, Journey into Power. The first of its kind, it introduced the world to Baptiste Yoga, his signature method that marries a lifetime of studying with some of the world’s most renowned yoga masters with his uniquely powerful approach to inner and outer transformation. Since then, yoga has steadily moved into the mainstream in our culture, and Baron’s unique contribution has played a key role. As millions of participants incorporate yoga into their daily lives, Baron’s teachings have evolved to bring them even deeper into their own transformative possibilities.Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice takes readers beyond the foundations of the practice by speaking to everything that happens in their bodies and minds after they get into a yoga pose. That is where the true transformation occurs, and where much rich spiritual and emotional growth is available. Readers will learn how to move through their lives with grace and flow, begin again when a situation becomes difficult, "be a yes" for their innermost desires, give up what they must, follow their intuition, and find their truth north. With his signature blend of boldness, insightfulness, humor, and warmth, Baron offers what is destined to be an instant classic in the yoga and meditation world. With Perfectly Imperfect, he proves once again to be a true yoga master for the modern world.
