YOGA FOR THE WOUNDED HEART
A Journey, Philosophy, and Practice of Healing Emotional Pain

Orphaned in her early teens and shuttled between abusive foster homes, Tatiana Forero Puerta found herself in her early twenties in New York, haunted by the memories of her tumultuous youth and suicidal. Following emergency hospitalisation, she was advised by her doctor to take up yoga. Over days, weeks, months and then years, she embraced yoga's honesty and discipline - delving more deeply into its wisdom, literature and, vitally, its practice. In so doing, yoga healed her scars, opened her soul to forgiveness and allowed her to reconcile herself with a past that had threatened to snuff out her life.

YOGA FOR THE WOUNDED HEART is an unsparingly honest memoir of a childhood lost and of courage and resilience gained. It's, also, an exploration of the fundamentals of yoga - as a technology that focuses our awareness; as a practical application of mindfulness and attention to what is really going on in our lives and bodies and as a vehicle for the body to guide the mind and heart toward healing.
