Here’s a drug-free, side effect–free solution to common stress and mood problems—developed by two physicians. Millions of Americans suffer from mood problems and stress-related issues including anxiety, depression, insomnia, and trauma-induced emotions and behaviors; and most would prefer not to take medication for their conditions due to troublesome side effects, withdrawal symptoms, and disappointing success rates. Drs. Richard P. Brown and Patricia L. Gerbarg provide a drug-free alternative that works through a range of simple breathing techniques drawn from yoga, Buddhist meditation, the Chinese practice of qigong, Orthodox Christian monks, and other sources. These methods have been scientifically shown to be effective in alleviating specific stress and mood challenges such as anxiety, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and many others. The authors explain how breathing practices activate communication pathways between the mind and the body, positively impacting the brain and calming the stress response.

Discover how to heal both body and mind using only your breath and your hands. In The Power of Breath and Hand Yoga, Christine Burke shows how you already have all you need to heal both physical and emotional conditions and improve your overall wellbeing. Breath awareness has been linked to calming the body and brain, regulating blood pressure, improving memory and immune function, preventing heart attacks and easing chronic pain and asthma. Mudras are known as ‘yoga for the hands’: they are hand poses and positions that channel energy and offer a point of focus during meditation. First, Christine teaches you a range of breathing techniques and reveals the background behind mudras and how best to use them, and then she offers breath and mudra practices for 36 conditions, divided into body and mind. Each practice also includes a ‘jewel thought’ meditation, which can accompany the breath technique and/or mudra.
Truth is not something we have to seek out. It is not something absent and far-off, requiring great effort to find. Truth is present in you as the Life that is you. In Yoga of heart, Los Angeles-based yoga instructor Mark Whitwell takes us back to the time when yoga was first developed to the shamanic past of the Upanishads, when yoga was practiced as a means of acknowledging, enjoying and participating in the source of Life.
