Promoting Paths to Health & Wellness

starstarstar

As an author, Beth provides innovative and diverse tools for the practice of integrated wellness. Through her books, she helps readers address the body, mind and psyche to establish a lifestyle that promotes overall health and engages us in a daily practice of mindful living.

In her writing, Beth challenges the perception of yoga and wellness as a physical discipline to show how the integration of yogic principles, including meditation, Ayurveda, and mindfulness techniques, guide us toward holistic health. She addresses spiritual practices and the acts of service that provides us with personal insight and a sense of purpose throughout our daily lives.

Through her integrative practices, Beth shows how we can take teachings off the mat to create a shift in our lives, find deeper connection within ourselves and with others, and empower the communities in which we live.

Beth is the author of three best-selling books, which have sold more than 100,000 copies worldwide. Her forthcoming title, Healing Trauma with Yoga, is due out in November 2019.

Let Beth help you find a deeper connection with your authentic self and others as well as give back a contribution to the planet.

“Your health is your most valuable asset always."

Healing Trauma with Yoga & Mind-Body Techniques

Healing Trauma with Yoga & Mind-Body Techniques

Published by Blue River Pr

This book is a user-friendly guide to learning about trauma sensitive yoga, who needs it, and how to implement the practice. This book provides easy to understand, applicable, and valuable information for many populations so anyone can embrace the gift of yoga. As our world grows smaller through technology, we can grow more distant and alone. Tragedy seems to present itself as pervasive and overwhelming, however armed with the many tools of yoga, we discover resiliency and hope.

Trauma is an emotional response to an event like an accident, rape, or natural disaster. Trauma is a subjective experience and represents a threat to personal safety physically, emotionally, or mentally. Trauma activates our sympathetic nervous system (SNS), which is necessary and important as a survival response. Trauma becomes a problem when it is chronic or so severe in perception that the SNS is never turned back off. When the sympathetic nervous system is continually activated, it rewires the nervous system and physical changes take place in the brain and the endocrine system that make healing more challenging. Chronic activation can turn into Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a condition that can cause serious physical and mental illness. Whether or not a trauma becomes a chronic stress seems to be related to the intensity and severity of the incident and also to past trauma exposure. This book will explore these changes and just how trauma gets stored in the body as well as offer a trauma sensitive format of YogaFit as a body based program for healing.
