FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bounced from a trampoline at 10, enduring a second back-injury weightlifting in school, and falling from a roof at 40, born-to-be-wild biker Gregory Ormson moved to Hawaii but was sidelined by debilitating back pain and couldn’t enjoy paradise. Dipping a toe into yoga, he discovered a healing road that reformed his mind and fixed his spine.
In 23 lyric vignettes the author writes yoga is a song of healing and restoration from the inside out. The instrument of yoga’s song is the body which includes mind, spirit, emotion, and energy. Its melodies are alive in the sound of Om or a vocalized, heartfelt Namaste; others sing a yoga song in asana through their bodies or in a group exhale.
In breath-centered yoga practice, yogis experience a therapeutic and healing power where ordinary moments stretch into extraordinary. Described in “Transforming the Emotional Body,” “Ritual Process and the Yogi’s New Song,” and “Yoga: A Breathcentric Community,” Yoga Song informs and inspires, proclaiming to every yogi that their yoga is a song.
