9780061864254: Fierce Medicine: Breakthrough Practices to Heal the Body and Ignite the Spirit

Fierce Medicine is a personal journey, a profound teaching, and a spiritual path that explores physical, emotional, mental and spiritual practices for healing. Charismatic yogi, teacher, and healer Ana Forrest accomplishes all of this through the lens of her amazing life story. Developing a Practice of Strength and Spirit. Born crippled, Ana Forrest's life trauma and experiences - including physical abuse, drug addiction, epilepsy, and bulimia - led her to create Forrest Yoga, her unique fusion of Eastern yoga and Native American medicine. Now recognized as a pioneer in Yoga and emotional healing who travels the world giving workshops, retreats, and teacher-trainings, Ana shares her inspiring story of howYoga saved her life, and shows how it can do the same for the reader. For those who've never tried yoga to those who've been practicing for years, Forrest presents tools for life transformation tested on the hundreds of thousands of students she has taught. This book lays out a system of practices that specifically address the challenges and stresses - physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual - that all people face. Forrest's method starts by listening to one's body - often the aches, pains, stiffness or anxieties. She helps readers recognize the messages their bodies are trying to send, and then guides them through spiritual and physical exercises to addresswhat is causing pain or stress. A true warrior who has taken some of life's most difficult trials and turned them into a life of healing, Ana Forrest shows us how to stop hiding from ourselves and live fully in our lives and bodies.
