Yoga Skills for Therapists: Effective Practices for Mood Management (Norton Professional Books (Hardcover))

A toolkit of “no mat” yoga strategies for you and your clients.

Drawing on her study of multiple traditions and lineages―from ancient yoga practices to current neuroscientific research on yoga benefits and contraindications―Weintraub presents a compendium of guided breathing exercises, meditations, self-inquiry practices, relaxation exercises, and simple postural adjustments that can readily accompany and complement psychotherapy―no mat or difficult postures required! Therapists learn exactly how to introduce these simple practices into a session, all within the comfort of their therapy room, no prior yoga training or experience necessary.

Weintraub shows therapists how to introduce and apply a full range of yogic approaches: targeted breathing practices called pranayama that meet the present mood and bring it into balance; healing hand gestures called mudras; special sounds and tones called mantras; guided imagery and affirmation; yogic self-inquiry, and much more. Clinical stories and anecdotes explore how these yoga-based interventions, rooted in a firm, evidence-based foundation, can be used as effective treatments for a particular mood or mental state.

With over 50 photographs that clearly illustrate the practices and gestures, detailed, step-by-step instructions, and scripts for guided relaxation and meditations, Yoga Skills for Therapists is a practical, hands-on guide that teaches the power of basic yoga techniques to bring great self-awareness, balance, and lasting well-being to you and your clients. 30 photographs

How to Improve Your Leadership and Management Skills – Effective Strategies for Business Managers

This book features effective strategies and clever techniques to help you improve your leadership and management skills. It points out that you must be a leader that people follow, keep informed, make timely decisions and take effective action. In effect you must control the activities of your organization rather than being controlled by them.

Here’s what’s in the book:

* How to lead and manage people; powerful tips and strategies to motivate and inspire your people to bring out the best in them. Be the boss people want to give 200 percent for.

* How to Make a Good First Impression

My name is Meir Liraz and I’m the author of this book. According to Dun & Bradstreet, 90% of all business failures analyzed can be traced to poor management.

This is backed up by my own experience. In my 31 years as a business coach and consultant to managers, I’ve seen practically dozens of managers fail and lose their job — not because they weren’t talented or smart enough — but because they were trying to re-invent the wheel rather than rely on proven, tested methods that work. And that is where this book can help, it will teach you how to avoid the common traps and mistakes and do everything right the first time.
