The philosophy and practice of yoga are constant themes that we return to time and time again throughout the book.
It is one of the best ways to strengthen your upper body and lower back, firm up your core, increase your energy, help you to fall back in love with your body and your self, unclutter your mind, cope with stress, embrace change and live a longer and healthier life.
We discuss the yamas: simple and yet profound ‘moral codes’, the niyamas: practices that require us to observe our inner selves, including Santosa: complete contentment through acceptance.
We discuss the concept of detachment that enable us to separate ourselves from our negative thoughts and emotions that are normal barriers to change.
