Publisher's Summary

In the Western world, the yoga practice associated with doing poses on a mat benefits millions of devotees every day. Yet few people realize that the physical practice is rooted in a larger philosophy offering profound insights that can help people confront the complexities of daily life, especially at work.

Maren and Jamie Showkeir's unprecedented book brings into crisp focus the full range of yoga's rich, transformational benefits. Based on the traditional Eight Limbs of Yoga (the postures, or asanas, are only one limb), it offers straightforward, practical suggestions on how to integrate yoga's ancient philosophy and beautiful spiritual principles into the modern workplace.

The Showkeirs know firsthand how yoga's wisdom can make work-and life-more rewarding and worthwhile. They explain each of yoga's tenets and show how a broad, steadfast practice leads to a productive, creative, and energizing work environment. The book offers illuminating stories from people in professions such as banking, law enforcement, film directing, education, and more. These living examples illustrate how yoga's teachings reduce stress and increase meaning and satisfaction at work.

The Showkeirs believe passionately that a physical practice alone will barely scratch the surface of yoga's transformative powers. Much more than a simple how-to book, Yoga Wisdom at Work is an invitation to use the Eight Limbs to cultivate the spark of the divine that dwells within each of us. Yoga's precepts offer you the keys for staying centered, compassionate, positive, and sane every hour of the day-including from nine to five.

    Sharing of practicing the eight legs of yoga on how it relates to our every day lives including the workplace. I am also yoga practitioner who is very interested in helping those interested companies manage their transformation using these yogic principles in an agile methodology specifically for project management where there is much needed guidance. Namaste!

    "My first Yoga book"

    I like it. I am new in the Yoga world and I am taking 4 classes a week but I got to the point that I wanted to know a little bit more about this practice. This book explains you where is Yoga from and talks about how to apply our Yoga practice into our daily life. I do recommend it if you are starting your path in the Yoga world

    "Mispronunciation detracts from content"

    This book has a lot of value but the narration was terrible. Satya has to win over here and I need to say that Please Audible get someone who knows how to pronounce the Sanskrit to assist the narrator with so many of the important words in this book.! It sadly becomes annoying hearing the mispronunciation time and time again and detracts from the listening experience and takes away from the quality of the contents, which are excellent.

    "narration is hard to handle"
    What made the experience of listening to Yoga Wisdom at Work the most enjoyable?

    This book contains a lot of Sanskrit terms and it was obvious the narrator had never heard of them and was not given a pronunciation guide. At times it was painful to listen.
