“As an avid, lifetime journaler, I LOVE the format of this yoga for chronic pain workbook! The authors make it simple enough for people who are not into journaling too. It is a guide–including inspiring quotes, meditations and home practices, and space for reflection. I highly recommend this workbook for anyone dealing with pain and for teachers wanting ideas and practices to share with their students.”

“I am not someone who knows a lot about yoga, but I am someone who has struggled with anxiety for over 20 years and have found mindfulness the best way to manage anxiety. This book’s explanation of the brain science and the strategies for how to best deal with the stories we continuously tell ourselves will stick with me as will its message about the importance of breath and just being present. Highly recommended!”

“The knowledge and skills conveyed in this book are exceptional and highly accessible to anyone desiring to confidently participate in improving the quality of their life through evidence-based mind-body practices. The easy to follow week-by-week lesson plans, excellent illustrations and all the many accessories (guided audio & video recordings, worksheets, etc..) provide a wealth of support to enhance learning and understanding. As a yoga therapist in a clinical setting, I will highly recommend “Relax into Yoga for Chronic Pain,” for all my patients wanting personal tools for managing both physical and emotional discomfort and distress. Deep bow of gratitude to the authors!”

They establish that these baby-steps go far to build confidence, resilience, and a greater sense of well-being. In addition, this workbook equips yoga teachers and therapists with a fantastic guide for developing a therapeutic approach to yoga, in order to meet the needs of those living with chronic pain.”
