Yoga Wisdom at Work: Finding Sanity Off the Mat and on the Job

In Western culture, most people think of yoga as physical postures (asanas) done in a gym, studio, or at home, but that is only a fraction of what yoga has to offer. Combining lessons from their long-time yoga practices with expertise as workplace consultants, Maren and Jamie Showkeir use relevant, everyday language to show how this ancient wisdom applies to the modern workplace.

Yoga’s other practices do for your mind what the physical postures do for your body — develop focus, strength, stability, and flexibility. Yoga offers a menu of pragmatic practices that are useful at work, including an ethical framework and a guide to self-development that can help you recognize and cultivate your vast potential. The authors will focus on helping people understand this rich spiritual tradition in the context of work, including offering practical practices for enhancing job satisfaction, success and sanity.
