Sam's Latest Book!

Relief from chronic pain with yoga is possible. In this book, yoga therapist Samantha Parker explains how traditional poses can be modified and gives readers keen insights into what is physically happening to the body while practicing yoga. She also dives deep into what is actually causing your chronic pain, so you can combat it at its true source!

Parker takes away the mystery and presents the practical side of yoga, so you can come away from a yoga session and implement what you did on your yoga mat that day for the rest of your day, week, and possibly life.
