Achieve professional and personal success by following the philosophical principles of yoga, along with powerful poses that can be done at a desk, in flight, or on the go.
Yoga is thought of by many as a fitness hobby - a gentler alternative to SoulCycle and CrossFit - but its underlying philosophy offers much more than a good workout. Yoga can relieve stress, focus the mind, and provide a path to reinvention, resilience, and a meaningful life. In Beyond the Mat, physician, executive, and yoga instructor Julie Rosenberg reveals how the essential lessons of the 4,000-year-old Yoga Sutras contain a relevant framework in which to thrive both personally and professionally, with:
- Principles for achieving work/life balance, building resilience, cultivating compassion, and working effectively with others
- Practices to manage time, avoid distractions, and get in "the zone"
- Breath-control exercises to mitigate stress and anxiety
- Power poses that can be done at home, at a desk, or on the go
