Praise

“For so many women, issues with food and body can hijack life. Sarahjoy Marsh skillfully weaves together principles from yoga philosophy with breathing, movement, and meditation practices to offer a path out of the perpetuating patterns of self- doubt, isolation, and unhappiness that can arise. This book is an invaluable contribution to the worlds of yoga and women’s health—and for anyone exploring the natural intelligence of body and mind as a means of finding balance and freedom.”—Mary Taylor, yoga teacher and author of What Are you Hungry For?

“Marsh offers an important methodology to those impacted by disordered eating—one that creates connection, harmony, and synthesis in one’s own being.”—Melanie Klein, co-editor of Yoga and Body Image and the co-founder of the Yoga and Body Image Coalition

“In this compassionate, down-to-earth guide to yoga for recovery from disordered eating, Sarahjoy Marsh shares profound lessons learned from over 25 years of yoga practice, personal recovery, and successful “360 degree” living. Gracefully integrating traditional yogic wisdom with modern psychological insight, this timely book offers a unique, vital, and much-needed road map to reconnecting with the healing powers of our innate life force.”—Carol Horton, PhD, author of Yoga PhD and co-editor of 21st Century Yoga
