Bent Back into Shape: Beating Addiction Through Yoga is the debut book from Welsh Yoga teacher Esther Nagle, and is available now on Amazon.
Described as ‘part memoir, part self help book, part exploration of how a life of Yoga can benefit everyone‘, the book tells the story of a woman at war with herself, and how Yoga brought peace that had never previously been thought possible.
In a book that will inspire, challenge and educate, Esther takes you down the path of Patanjali’s Eight Limbs of Yoga to show how Yoga is so much more than you might think it is, as is a life of sobriety. If you think Yoga is all about touching your toes, and sobriety is boring, then you will learn something from reading this book.
“There is a common misconception amongst the general public that living a life free of alcohol is to live a life with something missing. A life where every day is struggle against the demon drink.
Esther Nagle puts these myths firmly to bed with her exploration of addiction and recovery and the power of yoga to both bring joy and to still ‘the whirlpools of the subconscious mind’.
Some books are called life-changing. This one really is.”
“A very brave and truthful account I can relate to. Thought provoking, informative, a must read for anyone wanting to find spirituality and learn about the use of yoga in addiction recovery”
