Here is a book for finding your way as a warrior and adapting to a peaceful life at home. The techniques of yoga and meditation have extensive scientific support for their effectiveness in relaxing the stress response, sharpening mental acuity, boosting immunity and recovery time, and promoting a general sense of health and psychological well-being. In Yoga for Warriors, acclaimed teacher Beryl Bender Birch presents a beginner-friendly approach that she originally developed while working with civilians and first-responders in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. Adaptable for readers' individual needs, these step-by-step practices include: Basic Breathwork—learn the foundational skill of ujjayi breathing to get grounded, present, and in control Build Your Fire—yoga's traditional "sun salutations" to warm up the body while quieting the mind Power and Balance—standing postures to open up, stretch, and strengthen the joints and muscles Turning Inward—the practice of yoga nidra for a highly alert yet deeply peaceful state of mind that can lead to restorative sleep Powerful meditation techniques that help heal the body and balance energy War leaves more than physical scars. Military servicemen and women bear invisible wounds—including PTS (Post-Traumatic Stress), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), MST (Military Sexual Trauma), anxiety, and depression—all just as real and painful. If you or someone you know are just entering military service, preparing for deployment, or returning home, Yoga for Warriors offers the tools for one of the most challenging of transitions.

'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

Premodern and early modern yoga comprise techniques with a wide range of aims, from turning inward in quest of the true self, to turning outward for divine union, to channeling bodily energy in pursuit of sexual pleasure. Early modern yoga also encompassed countercultural beliefs and practices. In contrast, today, modern yoga aims at the enhancement of the mind-body complex but does so according to contemporary dominant metaphysical, health, and fitness paradigms. Consequently, yoga is now a part of popular culture. In Selling Yoga, Andrea R. Jain explores the popularization of yoga in the context of late-twentieth-century consumer culture. She departs from conventional approaches by undermining essentialist definitions of yoga as well as assumptions that yoga underwent a linear trajectory of increasing popularization. While some studies trivialize popularized yoga systems by reducing them to the mere commodification or corruption of what is perceived as an otherwise fixed, authentic system, Jain suggests that this dichotomy oversimplifies the history of yoga as well as its meanings for contemporary practitioners. By discussing a wide array of modern yoga types, from Iyengar Yoga to Bikram Yoga, Jain argues that popularized yoga cannot be dismissed--that it has a variety of religious meanings and functions. Yoga brands destabilize the basic utility of yoga commodities and assign to them new meanings that represent the fulfillment of self-developmental needs often deemed sacred in contemporary consumer culture.

Does this story inform the yoga practitioner how to understand ahimsa, the basis of yoga? Can we reconcile the two, a vicious warrior with nonviolence? Join the conversation and take yoga beyond the mere mechanic of yoga asana.
