Description

In The Healing Power of Movement, the joy of being physically active and how that can boost physical, mental, and spiritual health is explored and revealed in full. Written by an experienced yoga teacher, hill runner and fell walker, Hannah Glancy, the benefits of moving your body and connecting with nature in order to feel more in tune with the world take center stage… starting from a place of joy, to demystify the sometimes opaque and intimidating world of physical activity.

Split into three parts, the first – Move with Your Body – guides readers through practical exercises to help connect with their own body and recognize what a magical tool for moving through the world it can be, and already is. Filled with tips and tricks, getting in touch with the body lays the groundwork for the healing to follow.

In part two – Move with Your Breath – the healing power of deep yogic breathing, alternate nostril breathing (as made famous by Hillary Clinton) takes the reader deeper into the mind-body connection and explores how activating the breath can be the most healing part of physical movement.

In part three – Move with Your Mind – the barriers that we all put up in face of getting active are gently broken down as resilience and acceptance are explored, with a quiz designed to help readers identify the mindset they bring to movement and helping readers to understand how they can change their own approach for the better.

Throughout the book there are specific practical exercises to try at home that help explain the concepts explored, including two full yoga sequences with illustrations that guide the reader through the poses.

Featuring tips for running, walking and cold-water swimming, The Healing Power of Movement is the perfect introduction to understanding exercise for people who want to live a fulfilling active life that puts healing and nature at its heart.
