Yoga is an ancient practice that is more commonly known in the West by its physical practice but, at its heart, is a deeply practical philosophy for living a better life.
The Business Yogi: How to be Happy at Work is 140 pages of ideas and inspiration from the philosophy and practice of yoga applied to the modern workplace. Divided into five chapters – Starting, Challenges, Progress, Relationships and Focus – the book takes the readers on a personal journey into their inner self helping them use their yoga practice to find resilience and happiness in the workplace.
You don’t need to be living in an ashram to live a yogic flavoured life; the principles of yoga can blend into our industrial and industrious society. This book is about bringing yoga to your workplace, whether you are an entrepreneur or an employee, it’s about making it work for YOU.
Whether you are a yoga newbie wanting to find out more or a seasoned practitioner wishing to deepen your practice, The Business Yogi has something for everyone to incorporate into their busy life.
“The book uses ideas and insights from yoga to show how work life (and life in general) can be enhanced and happiness achieved. It covers 5 key areas (Starting, Challenges, Progress, Relationships and Focus) and takes you through each one with clarity, wit and honesty. The writers are both yoga practitioners and have developed a deep understanding of the powers of patience, stillness and balance. However, they freely and endearingly admit to their own bouts of anger or mental busyness in order to show how they use the yoga techniques to overcome these moments.
The book is a fascinating read interspersed with ‘Mat Moments’, useful practical activities to help you regain balance and perspective. These include simple physical exercises alongside short meditations. This is a really inspiring book for anyone who wants to ﬁnd head-space and happiness.”
