by Neil Pearson, Shelly Prosko, and Marlysa Sullivan
Well, I must admit, I am biased on this post; Neil Pearson is my teacher. But! That being said, this book went waaaay above and beyond my expectations. It is so comprehensive, and draws on the knowledge and experience of so many individuals who offer not only applicable practices for understanding and overcoming pain, but also the science behind why these practices can be so transformational. For me, it is the perfect combination of information, practices, compassion, and deep respect for the complexity that is being human.
This is also the first book I have read that really delves into how yoga can be such good medicine for persistent pain. In a world where we often think of yoga as asana (or just a physical practice), this book really draws on the depth of the philosophy of yoga and all the ways in guides us towards practices that support our own healing. I HIGHLY recommend this book! Especially if you are drawn to yoga, this is the book for you.
