Beyond the Mat: Achieve Focus, Presence, and Enlightened Leadership Through the Principles and Practice of Yoga

By Julie Rosenberg
Achieve professional and personal success by following the philosophical principles of yoga, along with powerful poses that can be done at a desk, in flight, or on the go

Yoga is thought of by many as a fitness hobby--a gentler alternative to SoulCycle and CrossFit--but its underlying philosophy offers much more than a good workout. Yoga can relieve stress, focus the mind, and provide a path to reinvention, resilience, and a meaningful life. In Beyond the Mat, physician, executive, and yoga instructor Julie Rosenberg reveals how the essential lessons of the four-thousand-year-old Yoga Sutras contain a relevant framework in which to thrive both personally and professionally, with:

  • Principles for achieving work/life balance, building resilience, cultivating compassion, and working effectively with others
  • Practices to manage time, avoid distractions, and get in "the zone"
  • Breath-control exercises to mitigate stress and anxiety
  • Power poses that can be done at home, at a desk, or on the go

"Many of us are struggling with busyness, stress, and exhaustion in the face of our over-burdening lives and over-demanding roles. What Julie Rosenberg does beautifully in this book is to apply the ancient wisdom of yoga to the modern challenges of twenty-first-century life and work. This book is both practical and profound. It's like a new set of glasses: it helps you to see familiar problems a bit differently, a bit more clearly. It also provides a host of simple techniques and tools to respond more effectively. For anyone who has found mindfulness useful, this book is a must; it will help you extend your mindfulness through your body, life, and leadership."
