“Yoga invites us into an intimate inquiry of ourselves by creating a dialogue between the mind, body, and spirit.” – Tanya Markul
This is just one of the many insightful quotes from Stephanie Spence’s book ‘Yoga Wisdom.’ After surviving an abusive marriage for two decades, Stephanie Spence made the brave decision to leave her husband and start on a new path to self-discovery. Through yoga practice and spiritual exploration, she realized her life’s purpose was to educate and inspire people to try yoga and embrace it as a way of life. She decided to embark on a month long yoga road trip, gathering wisdom from over a hundred global yoga leaders and their stories are scattered throughout the pages of this incredible book.
Spence’s story is one of fierce bravery, pulling from her experiences as a wife, mother, PTSD survivor, CEO and writer. Her goal was to enable readers to live to their fullest, most authentic lives and she accomplishes this with the help of inspiring testimonials. Spence shares her own story from the moment she decided that she wanted a divorce, to losing her relationship with her daughters, rebuilding her life and finding her true happiness. She uses her experience to develop a roadmap for others on a similar journey in the hope that it may help people going through similar life changes.
