Jersey Festival Of Words – Sasha Bates – YOGA SAVED MY LIFE

What is it that takes yoga beyond being merely a way to physically exercise the body, and instead renders it a tool for effecting deep and lasting emotional change? Join Sasha in the grounds of our festival village in Howard Davis Park for a fifteen-minute chat about her inspiring book followed by a gentle yoga/mindful session and Q+A. Bring an open mind and a yoga mat!

In Yoga Saved My Life psychotherapist and yoga teacher Sasha Bates demystifies both yoga and psychotherapy, exploring the links between them and showing how each can be transformational. This sits alongside personal stories from members of the Fierce Calm yoga community – people who have experienced all manner of difficulties, whether due to neglect, addiction, abuse, anxiety, depression, stress or any of the other myriad ways in which we all struggle with modern life. Here they tell their stories of finding yoga, and thereby discovering a path through the beliefs and behaviours that had been holding them back and keeping them miserable.

‘Yoga Saved My Life shows us gently and persuasively that healing the mind is as important as healing the body, and yoga is a great way of doing this’ – Vex King, author of Good Vibes, Good Life and Healing is the New High
