Growing With a Yoga Flow, Notes to Deepen Your Practice, traces the story of yoga, from its origins to its potential, through a personal lens. In this compact easy to read collection of essays, Rola shares insights from her training as an advanced yoga teacher and yoga therapist, her travels meeting and interviewing yoga influencers, but above all from her personal journey as a woman from the Middle East who navigated her way in an uncertain world, finding an anchor in the teachings of yoga.
Growing With a Yoga Flow is a collection of essays that traces the origin of yoga and its potential for personal and social transformation, based on one woman's personal story. Is there one authentic true yoga that we should follow? Has the West ruined yoga? Is singing mantra allowed for non-Indians? How did yoga become so popular with women when its origins appear to be male dominated? Can yoga heal people from trauma of war, violence and displacement? How to choose a yoga retreat and style of yoga? Isn't yoga harmful in old age? These are some of the questions that Rola asked herself as she was training to become a yoga instructor and yoga therapist. In this compact book, she shares her notes on possible answers, with the hope of helping new and more experienced practitioners deepen their practice beyond form and movement. The author draws on her Arab roots, corporate background as well as her experience as a 50 plus committed yoga practitioner to unfold a deeper yoga practice, accessible to all.
