In the last twenty years there has been a dramatic rise in our understanding of trauma. At the same time, the number of yoga studios has increased exponentially all over the country. These two facts have converged to show what many yoga practitioners have long known: yoga heals. Expressed through the voice of Becky Thompson, a trauma survivor, activist, and yoga teacher, Survivors on the Yoga Mat offers musings, stories, reflections, and meditations for people who are healing from a range of traumas--sexual abuse, accidents, child abuse, war, illnesses, incarceration, and other injuries. The book's 90 true stories, which are alternately irreverent, funny, serious, insightful, and surprising, are helpful companions for people on the road to wholeness. Also included is a description of Pantajali's Eight Limbs of Yoga, a list of resources (books, videos, and music), and a beautiful photo glossary with over 100 photos of the yoga postures mentioned in the book.
