If there was ever a time in recent memory when we are all needing to bolster our sense of personal well being - it is now! With so much gloom and doom reporting on the state of the global economy- how can you not feel a bit blah or melancholy from time to time.
One proven fix for healing the soul and improving your sense of self is exercise. One writer has taken her ability to put her story in print - while also giving you some real self-help Yoga advice.
Katrina Repka was new to New York and newer to Yoga. On her quest for the perfect job and the perfect man, what she found first was the perfect yoga studio. She was over-stressed, underemployed, and dating all the wrong men. It was Alan Finger - the Yoga Master of ISHTA Yoga who helped her find her balance - strengthen her core and listen to the voice inside. Katrina not only met the man of her dreams and moved to London to live happily "now" after - she was inspired to write this novel / self help book with Alan about her exploration - aptly titled BREATHING SPACE.
While the title works on several levels - at the center of Alan's yoga practice is breathing. Ayurvedic medicine teaches that "Prana" or life force flows into our body as we breath. The more complete and regular our breath- the greater ability we have to energize our soul!
