Anyone who practices yoga understands that more is going on than stretching. Restful meditation brings clarity and energy for solutions at work. Gentle poses open up new sources of positive energy for tough problems. Most of all, peaceful, quiet instructions wash away stress and make each day full of health and vitality. But the asanas-poses-are just 1/8 of what yoga actually is. The physical practice from which millions derive so much benefit is rooted in a larger philosophy that has profound insights to offer. Maren and Jamie Showkeir believe passionately that we've barely scratched the surface of yoga's powers, especially as a way to make the workday and workplaces more enjoyable, productive and creative. In this very personal and instructive book, they reveal the remaining yoga principles that even some long-standing practitioners may not know about. They discuss how each "limb" applies to the workplace and even suggest asanas that will help you deepen your understanding of these principles. These other limbs of yoga include: Yama - universal morality; Niyama - personal observances; Pranayama - breathing exercises; Pratyahara - control of the senses; Dharana - concentration; Dhyaba - devotion and meditation; and Samadhi - union with the Divine.
