“Yoga and life are journeys, and this book is a wonderful guide along the path!”—Greg Louganis, four-time Olympic gold medalist
Holistic wisdom for sustained peace
Ally Hamilton changed her life with the eight limbs of yoga, a spiritual tradition first recorded in the Yoga Sutras 1,600 years ago. Join Ally as she shows you how to apply the wisdom of this honored tradition to your modern-day life.
Physical poses—asanas—are the best-known aspects of yoga, but in the eight limbs practice, healing comes through exploring your relationship to the world and to yourself while learning to recognize the obstacles that block your path. Yoga’s Healing Power shows how to create the life you want from the inside out, working with your mind and emotions, your body and breath, your memories and your pain. With hands-on exercises, meditations, journaling prompts, and stories of healing, this book helps you uncover your particular gifts and begin to feel joy.

Ally grew up in New York City and earned a bachelor's degree from Columbia University. During her senior year, she wandered into a yoga class thinking it was going to be too easy for her, and that yoga was “stretching on the floor.” After one eye-opening session, she was hooked. Not only was the physical challenge appealing, she discovered yoga was a way of being, not something you do for ninety minutes on a mat. In 2001, Ally moved to California to check out the yoga scene and she's never left. She's the mama of two amazing kids and one energetic Labradoodle.
