War leaves more than physical scars. Military service men and women today bear invisible wounds-PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), anxiety, depression-all just as real and painful. This book gives you tools for finding your way as a warrior-whether deployed or in a civilian environment-and adapting to a peaceful life at home. Yoga and meditation have scientific support as a means for relaxing the stress response, sharpening mental acuity, boosting immunity and recovery time, and promoting a general sense of health and psychological well-being. Beryl Bender Birch developed the methods described in Warrior Pose while working with civilians and first-responders in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. They include yoga postures, breathing techniques, relaxation and "yoga sleep," meditation, and more. In Rear Admiral (ret.) and former Navy SEAL Tom Steffens' words, "Beryl never takes any subject lightly, trust me, and her insight into the mind-body-spirit connection for military members and veterans results from an in-depth study that she undertook to get this right."

'Can anyone imagine that a man with such a strong, continuous and unbroken will has been reaching out to the masses with the goal 'one life-one mission'. He has been travelling the country round the clock and has been meeting lakhs of people every-day and motivating them through yoga. If Baba Ramdev would have been in any other country then there would have been so many Universities that would have done PhD on his life history.' I had once asked Baba Ramdev that yoga gives energy, good-health and zeal but how does it help when you are surrounded with so many problems? 'Baba Ramdev had started his journey for the well being of this country's citizens through yoga, especially for the poor who were not able to afford medicines. After travelling for ten years across the country he noticed that it's not only the health of the citizens that needed attention but also the 'health of the country' so from then onwards he began to voice his concerns related to the dysfunctions of the nation. Baba Ramdev is such a personality who doesn't rest till he achieves his goals.'

"What was I doing in Myrtle Beach on that chilly January evening in 1990 with a loaded gun and a bag full of cash? I'll get to that shortly. And who was Larry? I'll get to that too. In fact, I'll get to a lot of things, many of them not very pleasant, as I tell you about the path I have taken in life." To get to the highest level as a world class yoga teacher took a lifetime of wrong choices. Rudy Mettia is not your typical yoga master and "Yoga Warrior" is a powerful story of Rudy's life that will inspire yoga students and non yoga students to never stop looking for their own version of enlightenment on their own warrior path! "To me, this book is inspirational in the sense it expresses the fact yoga is for everyone, and just because your past did not include peace, love and granola (mine did not either), it does not bar you from yoga wisdom. In Rudy's case, it's to the contrary - it has been his catalyst. You definitely won't find another rough and tumble story like this in the plethora of yoga books out there and for me that is refreshing. I can certainly recommend to you 'Yoga Warrior' by Rudy Mettia!" Bryan Kest Father of Poweryoga and founder of western based Donation yoga "Having practiced yoga with Rudy for several years, I've come to know him not only as an instructor but as a mentor and a friend. His gifts, wisdom and ability to overcome obstacles and setbacks have made him the teacher and man he is today." Arianna Huffington Co-Founder and Editor-In-Chief of The Huffington Post "Rudy is one of the most REAL Yoga Stars in the world. He brings ancient yoga tools into the modern world so we can relate. He is a No BS real dude who we can all relate to and be truly inspired by. As the Publisher and Co-founder of PositivelyPositive.com I come across the most inspirational personalities in the world, and Rudy is one of the tops on that list." Eric Handler Co-Founder of PositivelyPositive.com "From the moment you step into Rudy's class you are met with a warm enthusiasm and you feel at home. Here is a man who loves what he does and as he guides you from pose to pose you fall in love with the practice as well. Rudy makes the practice accessible and safe while gently pushing you beyond your perceived limits." Yariv Lerner Founder/CEO Udaya Entertainment "Rudy's say-it-like-it-is approach is refreshing, humorous, and heartfelt. Whether he's telling a story, teaching a yoga class, or simply engaging you in friendly conversation, you'll be seduced by his wit and charm." Jules Mitchell MS,Yoga Teacher, Yoga Educator
