Yoga Wisdom at Work (Enhanced)

Maren and Jamie Showkeir's unprecedented book brings into crisp focus the full range of yoga's rich, transformational benefits.

The Enhanced Edition includes six videos (9 minutes) and seven audios (21 minutes). The videos include personal stories about the benefits of practicing yoga at work, a method to help honor non-lying and non-violence, and three breath control techniques. The audios feature meditations to help release negativity, increase energy, calm the mind, tap into one’s own essence, and be fully present at work, as well as specific suggestions for living out the yogic precepts of contentment and surrendering to a higher purpose in the workplace.

  • The first book to filter the philosophical and spiritual principles of yoga-not just the postures-through the lens of work
  • Questions and suggestions in each chapter help readers set clear intentions and develop mindful practices for more meaningful work
  • Inspiring stories from practitioners in a variety of professions breathe life into the benefits derived from employing yoga's wisdom in the workplace

In the Western world, the yoga practice associated with doing poses on a mat benefits millions of devotees every day. Yet few people realize that the physical practice is rooted in a larger philosophy offering profound insights that can help people confront the complexities of daily life, especially at work.

Maren and Jamie Showkeir's unprecedented book brings into crisp focus the full range of yoga's rich, transformational benefits. Based on the traditional Eight Limbs of Yoga (the postures, orasanas, are only one limb), it offers straightforward, practical suggestions on how to integrate yoga's ancient philosophy and beautiful spiritual principles into the modern workplace.

The Showkeirs know firsthand how yoga's wisdom can make work-and life-more rewarding and worthwhile. They explain each of yoga's tenets and show how a broad, steadfast practice leads to a productive, creative, and energizing work environment. The book offers illuminating stories from people in professions such as banking, law enforcement, film directing, education, and more. These living examples illustrate how yoga's teachings reduce stress and increase meaning and satisfaction at work.

The Showkeirs believe passionately that a physical practice alone will barely scratch the surface of yoga's transformative powers. Much more than a simple how-to book, Yoga Wisdom at Workis an invitation to use the Eight Limbs to cultivate the spark of the divine that dwells within each of us. Yoga's precepts offer you the keys for staying centered, compassionate, positive, and sane every hour of the day-including from nine to five.
