Why do you feel so much better after a yoga class?What is it that takes yoga beyond being merely a way to physically exercise the body, and instead renders it a tool for effectuating deep and lasting emotional change?In Yoga Saved My Life psychotherapist and yoga teacher Sasha Bates demystifies both yoga and psychotherapy, exploring the links between them and showing how each can be transformational.

This sits alongside personal stories from members of the Fierce Calm yoga community – people who have experienced all manner of difficulties, whether due to neglect, addiction, abuse, anxiety, depression, stress or any of the other myriad ways in which we all struggle with modern life.

Here they tell their stories of finding yoga, and thereby discovering a path through the beliefs and behaviours that had been holding them back and keeping them miserable. If you’ve ever wondered why you feel so much better after a yoga class, then the explanations of how any why yoga works will enlighten you.

Written using down to earth language and in a warm conversational tone, you will come to see how yoga is doing what psychotherapy does: providing a safe, containing, reflective space in which you can access your unconscious, develop self-awareness and find ways to relate to yourself better.

This new relationship with your self offers new ways to work with the automatic habits you do without thinking, but which hold you back, practically and emotionally. ‘Yoga Saved My Life shows us gently and persuasively that healing the mind is as important as healing the body, and yoga is a great way of doing this’ – Vex King, author of Good Vibes, Good Life and Healing is the New High
