Whether you’ve never stepped foot on a yoga mat before, aren’t quite ready to dive into a studio class, or want to deepen your home practice, Strong, Calm and Free is the perfect way to begin or enrich your yoga and meditation practice and help you live more mindfully in daily life. This beautifully-illustrated yoga book gently guides you through a life-changing 10-week plan of yoga routines and simple meditations, as well as sharing tips and tools for mindful living, reducing stress, and carving out time for self-care. With over 50 yoga poses and 20 easy-to-follow sequences to lay a strong foundation for a blossoming practice, each week introduces a new collection of poses including hip openers, backbends and forward folds to help you get stronger, improve flexibility, and build a yoga practice that works for you. Drawing on the ancient wisdom of yoga and meditation as well as modern psychological tools for wellbeing and personal growth, international yoga teacher, Nicola Jane Hobbs, shares the transformative power of yoga, meditation, and mindfulness so you can grow stronger, feel calmer, and free yourself from anxiety to become healthy, peaceful, and happy. As lives become busier, stress levels rise and mental health issues increase, people are looking for a way to stay calm in a hectic world. The number of people practicing yoga grew over 50% from 2012 to 2016, and ‘yoga’ was one of the most popular terms searched on Google in 2016 in the UK. Strong, Calm and Free provides an accessible alternative for people keen to explore yoga and meditation without the restrictions of going to a studio class (for example, cost, timing, and feeling intimidated or self-conscious practising in a group setting). Both yoga and meditation are the most popular alternative health approaches in the US, practised by an estimated 35 million adults, and meditation is also the fastest growing health trend in America.
