Full Description

Has yoga improved your health and expanded your awareness—but emotional and relationship issues continue to challenge you?
Or have you found psychotherapy helpful . . . yet you yearn for further spiritual discovery?
With Yoga & Psyche, Mariana Caplan invites you to explore these two profound domains of transformation and learn how they so effectively complement each other.
In this compelling guide—rich with original research, clinical findings, Dr. Caplan's own personal experiences, and many direct, hands-on practices—she takes you on an in-depth exploration of this emerging terrain.
Along the way, you are invited to become a participant in the evolution of this emergent field.
Using the core principles and practices of trauma healing, yoga therapy, somatics and somatic therapies, depth psychology, and neuroscience—seamlessly combined with yoga postures, breathwork, meditation, and visualization—Yoga & Psyche will help you to:
• Apply the insights of psychology in a practical way to your own yoga practice, teaching, professional work, and personal life
• Discover how to use psychological inquiry to amplify yoga—turning it into a powerfully effective "free therapy on the mat"
• Delve into the many emotional layers of asana and yoga practice for trauma healing and recovery
• Experience step-by-step exercises to transform your yoga practice and experience greater calm, clarity, and emotional well-being
Yoga & Psyche is emerging as a go-to reference guide to the joining of these two fields, now being adopted in yoga and somatic teacher training programs and university psychology classes nationwide.
If you're seeking healing, transformation, and greater moments of daily joy and fulfillment—or want to help others do so—this comprehensive guide provides the compassionate, practical, and groundbreaking guidance you need.
