If you’re living with some type of chronic pain, at one point in your journey your doctor probably advised you to start doing yoga. And at one point you said, “WTF?” As in, “My doctor told me to do yoga. WTF? How is that going to help?”
Or maybe you’ve gone to a yoga class on your own because you read online that it would be good for your back. So, you went to a yoga studio and a typical class and you found yourself saying, “WTF? This is my first class. How the hell am I supposed to bend like that?”
Or you have gone to a yoga class, completed the class successfully only to get home and several hours or a day or two later, you’re in more pain than when you went to the class! WTF? I thought the class was supposed to help me, not hurt me?
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.
