By now, school is in full swing, the summer season is a memory, and life is b-u-s-y. Before we allow the holiday season to take hold, now could be a good time to focus and center and breathe, and rewire our brains. First, we turn to Portland, Oregon yoga therapist and educator Sarahjoy Marsh, who has penned Hunger, Hope & Healing, a guidebook to recovery from disordered eating, food addiction, and body image issues. It’s a synthesis of yoga, psychology, and neuroscience.
