This is a book about yoga, a holistic system for creating and sustaining balance and harmony on all the levels of our being body, mind, emotions and spirit. It’s about yoga’s boundless potential for healing, for bringing about beneficial change on all them. I’ve called it The Healing Power of Yoga because throughout my life yoga has proved is transformative healing power, most profoundly in 1993, when I had breast cancer. That experience left me with a deeper trust in the power of yoga to help us to face our challenges, and to heal ourselves. The book draws on my experience of yoga, and on my work with others who are dealing with life-changing illness, to explore how the yoga practices and body movement, breathing, relaxation and meditation contribute to healing. The simple yet powerful techniques I describe can be practiced by everyone, for inner strength and inner peace.
