- Yoga Nidra, or Deep Relaxation, can reduce stress, lead to better sleep, and help manage hypertension and other stress-aggravated illnesses.

One of the best parts of yoga is Deep Relaxation, a period of conscious, intentional rest that allows the body to heal and the mind to become peaceful. In this half-hour meditation, you’ll be guided through a series of movements to release tension from your body; a full deep relaxation session; and a slow, comfortable rise back to waking. Practiced daily, Deep Relaxation can promote better sleep, improved focus and concentration, and greater calm. Note: This very relaxing meditation may induce drowsiness. Please do not listen while driving or operating other heavy machinery.

“Read this book and feel a lot better about yourself and the world.” —Carolyn, Amazon reader
“Beautifully written and so meaningful to everyday life; it's also amazing that the mindfulness lessons are applied to a true story of an incredibly healing journey.

In Yoga Mind, Suzan Colón, former Senior Editor of O, the Oprah Magazine and certified yoga teacher, distills yoga’s philosophy into a 30-day spiritual program. The word “yoga” usually conjures up images of athletic poses, but when a friend has an accident that leaves him paralyzed, Suzan learned the true meaning of yoga: union with life as it is, with hope for what we can do, and with our true selves.
“Perfectly in sync with today’s tough times.” —People Magazine
“Touching, funny (laugh out loud in many places, truly), wise, upbeat and genuine.” —Sherri Rifkin, author of Love Hampton
“Part memoir, part cookbook, and all fabulous.” —Donna, Amazon reader
When Suzan Colón was laid off from her dream job, she needed to cut her budget way back, and that meant home cooking. Her mother suggested looking in her Nana’s recipe folder, and Suzan soon realized she had more than just a collection of recipes; she’d found the key to her family’s survival through hard times. Cherries in Winter makes you want to cook and remember your family’s stories, and above all, makes you feel rich no matter what. Includes recipes.
“From the first page, the story is simply wonderful.” —Amazon reader

“Complex, well-written, and moving.” —Christa, Goodreads
When a milestone birthday comes and goes without a proposal from her sweet but commitment-shy boyfriend, Katy takes a last-minute work assignment in exotic Costa Rica, hoping the distraction of writing about yoga and surfing in a tropical retreat will help her heal. What she finds is an adventure of the heart, risks, courage, and the willingness to love, lose, and love again.
