Thrive Through Yoga is a revolutionary route to freedom that can help you become a happy, confident, and resilient person and free you from the anxieties and worries of modern life.
In the introduction, Nicola says that “Yoga is about more than pretty poses. It’s about healing. Thriving.”
With heart-warming honesty Nicola shares her own story of how she triumphed over a mental illness that almost destroyed her and learned to thrive physically, emotionally, professionally, and financially with the help of yoga. She talks about depression, anxiety, stress, eating disorders and disordered eating, OCD, addiction, exhaustion, body shame, perfectionism and busy-ness.
She takes you on a powerful 21-day journey to show you how to:
- Free yourself from stress, anxiety, and worry
- Build confidence, compassion, and self-worth
- Let go of anything in your life that no longer nourishes you
- Develop a loving relationship with your body
- Become the person you would like to be
The book covers a flowing, breath-synchronized sequence traditionally called vinyasa. There are easy to follow photos of each of the poses. For each day there is a page explaining the sequence and a meditation exercise to complete. The last part of the book has each pose clearly explained with a few steps and points to note.
From facing your fears to embracing your beauty and overcoming perfectionism, each chapter explores different stepping stones on your journey to happiness and freedom and gives you daily inspiration, mindset exercises, meditations, and yoga routines to guide you every step of the way.
