Yoga Saved My Life: Life Lessons to Take Beyond Mat
If you’ve ever wondered why you feel so much better after a yoga class, then Yoga Saved My Life will enlighten you. This is Sasha’s take on how and why yoga can be so transformative, seen through the lens of psychotherapy.
Whilst working as both psychotherapist and yoga teacher, Sasha noticed how similar these two seemingly different approaches were. Both address the many complexities and pitfalls we all struggle with today – divisiveness, conflict, stress, depression, anger, addiction loneliness, self-loathing and more.
It’s brought to life by the true, first-hand stories of those who do indeed claim that yoga saved their lives from just these issues. These moving personal testimonies come from members of the Fierce Calm community. In reflecting on them, and on her own 30 year yogic journey, Sasha illuminates what it is that takes yoga way beyond physical exercise. Through down to earth language and a warm conversational tone, you will come to see how yoga is doing what psychotherapy does: providing a containing, reflective space in which you can access your unconscious, develop self-awareness, learn self-regulation and find ways to relate to yourself better. This new relationship with yourself offers ways to work with the automatic habits you do without thinking, but which hold you back, practically and emotionally.
