Book Review: Yoga Wisdom at Work

Part of my mission to get myself healthy involves doing yoga. When I was contacted about a new book about yoga at work, I was all, "Yay!" And due to my hectic life I skim a lot of my emails. So...yes, when I was contacted I thought, "Oh, a book to help me do yoga at work..." well, it is and it isn't that kind of book.

I will admit that I have not read the whole book yet. I wanted this review up quickly as when, Yoga Wisdom at Work: Finding Sanity Off the Mat and On the Job, goes on sale May 6, 2013, authors Maren and Jamie Showkeir will donate a percentage of that day’s sales to Namaste Charter School in Chicago. Considering the controversy that happens at some schools for teaching yoga, I thought I would support this campaign.

What this book focuses on is getting us to think in a yoga-like way at work. To use the breathing methods we would use in yoga class at work. Essentially to take that peaceful zone we are in at yoga class and be like that at work.

If you think that yoga is merely an exercise class, this book looks like it will push you to consider making yoga a way of thinking and being. And I bet you don't even need $100 yoga pants to make it happen either. Ironically, after my hectic semester is over, I'll read this book in an attempt to bring a sense of balance back to my life.

Get your copy through Powells or Indiebooks.
