Mariana Caplan - Yoga & Psyche (Corte Madera Store)

Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 7:00pm

Drawing from her extensive personal experience as a psychotherapist and yoga teacher and supporting her claims with academic research, Yoga & Psyche is one of the first to merge yoga philosophy with contemporary psychology. While Western psychology has been around for about 135 years, yoga is anywhere from 2,500-5,000 years old. With the Western world’s increasing interest in Eastern spirituality, new opportunities for transformation have emerged.
At 34 years old, Mariana Caplan suffered from multiple autoimmune disorders, and her body collapsed into a state of chronic fatigue. After endless visits to physicans and failed treatments, she turned to yoga. In three short weeks, she started feeling the positive effects. Yoga healed her body and placed her life back on track, but it was the deep psychological layers of trauma and emotion still trapped in her body that yoga alone couldn’t cure. And so her journey with somatic psychology and trauma healing began.
Throughout the book, Mariana proposes that yoga and psychology create a deeper possibility together than either of them alone. Collectively, they offer a map for a full range of healing and thriving from the darkest and most unconscious places within us. Weaving together research, theory, and experience, this book provides an eye-opening journey for those looking to deepen their practice and intensify the quality of their healing.
