Reviews
[+] [-] 082205 - Yoga & Mindfulness Therapy Workbook for Clinicians and Clients
“The Simpkins have unified three areas that have rarely, if ever, been pulled together: yoga (not just the body moves, but the deeper psychological, emotional and spiritual aspects as well), mindfulness practices and therapeutic methods…filled with exercises, tips and inspiring stories.”
- Bill O’Hanlon, featured Oprah guest and author of Out of the Blue: Six Non-Medication Ways to Relieve Depression

“The Yoga and Mindfulness Therapy Workbook offers a treasure trove of resources and practical exercises that are perfect for anyone wanting a unified mind-body approach to finding greater emotional focus, stability, balance, and ease in life. The timeless truths offered of yoga and mindfulness are seamlessly blended with modern brain science and research to provide solid evidence for why these practices can overcome 21st century stress, anxiety, and depression. The compelling real-life stories throughout the book illustrate that change really is possible! Most importantly, the expertly detailed exercises and many guided illustrations will have you feeling that authors Alex and Annellen Simpkins are right beside you, sharing their years of experience and wisdom, as you step on this path to greater healing and wholeness.”
-Donald Altman, M.S., LPC Author of The Mindfulness Toolbox, One-Minute Mindfulness, and The Mindfulness Code

“The Yoga and Mindfulness Therapy Workbook is much more than a ‘workbook.’ It is also a ‘sourcebook,’ taking its readers into the philosophical foundations of yoga and mindfulness and forward into their neuroscience and psycho-therapeutic applications. The exercises are user-friendly, and their health benefits are documented and explained. The chapters on yogic breathing, cognitive reframing, and self-regulation of attention are practical and articulate. The Drs. Simpkins have written a magnificent volume that attests to their own authority as well as their decades of clinical practice.”
-Stanley Krippner, Ph.D. Co-author of Personal Mythology and co-editor of Extraordinary Dreams
