CARLSBAD, Calif. (PRWEB) July 16, 2018
A Chopra Center Certified Vedic Educator has released a practical guide to understanding the core principles of living a yogic lifestyle, both on and off the mat. In “Going Beyond the Pose: Using Yoga as a Compass to Orient Your Life Toward Happiness,” author Kathleen Nitting presents readers with a modern view of the ancient science of yoga and couples wisdom from great sages and contemporary spiritual leaders with straightforward “Living Yoga” exercises and profound personal stories that illustrate the practice of being in yoga.
Through her book, Nitting also offers her own personal journey to discovering a greater sense of wellbeing through alternative healing modalities and the development of a regular yoga practice. Ultimately, Nitting seeks to de-mystify yoga by identifying and explaining the four paths of the practice as a roadmap to living a life of balance: Bhakti (love and devotion); Karma (action); Jnana (wisdom and knowledge); and Raja (meditation).
“With the rising stress levels, professional and personal burnout and the onslaught of health issues, there is greater interest in the science and philosophy of yoga both on and off the mat,” Nitting said. “Through my own research and experiences with the practice, I hope to offer readers a guide to incorporating yoga into their day-to-day lives in ways that are, as Dr. Deepak Chopra says, easy, comfortable and enjoyable.”
“What the world needs now (and has always needed) is a large dose of acceptance,” a reader wrote in a five-star Amazon review about the book. “Our divisiveness has never been more palpable and less productive than it is today. This book can help guide you through the alterations you can make in your daily routines and outlooks in order to attain a more peaceful and accepting mind and spirit.”
Diving deeper into yoga philosophy that has existed for several thousands of years, “Going Beyond the Pose” highlights just how relevant these teachings still are in today’s fast-paced, technology-driven world. Along with Nitting’s passion for yoga, readers will take away simple tips and tools, and a rich dose of inspiration, to help create their own compass and navigate them toward fulfillment in all areas of their lives.
