Beyond the Mat : Achieve Focus, Presence, and Enlightened Leadership through the Principles and Practice of Yoga Paperback
Practicing yoga is an extremely popular way to get fit, but its underlying philosophy can offer so much more to calm the mind and discover untapped personal power.
In BEYOND THE MAT, business leader, MD, and certified yoga teacher Julie Rosenberg shows you how to bring yoga out of the studio and into your personal and professional life to achieve success and become a more effective leader.
She shares how yoga is more than just poses (though those do help with backs tired from hunching in front of the computer all day), with an explanation of the principles, real-life examples, and anecdotes from the author's own professional career.
Yoga's philosophical principles extend far beyond the mat, for example:* Yama (yoga's moral precepts) apply to leadership--how we rightsize work in our lives, relate to colleagues, and cultivate compassion for ourselves and others* Dharana (being fully present) helps to manage time effectively, set healthy time limits on your work, and avoid distractions* Pranayama (breath control) mitigates stress and helps you stay calm in difficult situations
