These thirty pieces were collected and edited by participants in the Yoga and Body Image Coalition, an organization committed to body love through yoga that is accessible, body positive, and reflects the full range of human diversity.

Regenerative Medicine: Laboratory to Clinic

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Regenerative Medicine: Laboratory to Clinic
Feb 022018
 

This book discusses the two different cellular approaches that are pursued in regenerative medicine: cell therapy and tissue engineering. It examines in detail the therapeutic application of hematopoietic stem cells in marrow regeneration, multi-potent mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), also referred to as mesenchymal stromal cells. The interest in MSCs can be seen in more than 150 clinical trials, some of which have progressed to Phase III, despite the cells’ limited differentiation potential. The book also explores how embryonic stem (ES) cells, being pluripotent in nature, can resolve some of the problems associated with adult stem cells, yet entail other challenges like risks of teratoma formation and immune rejection. A separate chapter deals with the role of noncoding RNAs in neuronal commitment of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.

Chapters like “Cord blood banking in India and the global scenario”; “3D bioprinting of tissue” and others will make this book an extremely interesting read for all students, researchers and clinicians working in the area of regenerative medicine/stem cells.
The book is broadly divided into two parts, the first of which is devoted to basic information on stem cells, and the second of which addresses potential clinical applications in the areas of hematology, cardiology, orthopedic and immune suppression, etc.

Kabalah Yoga: Embodying the Hidden Power of the Sacred Hebrew Letters

 Miscellaneous  Comments Off on Kabalah Yoga: Embodying the Hidden Power of the Sacred Hebrew Letters
Jan 292018
 

Audi Gozlan, a certified yoga instructor and the founder of Kabalah Yoga, offers a book that fuses the practice of yoga with the ancient wisdom of Jewish mysticism, teaching you how to awaken the secret energy of each Hebrew letter in order to enliven your practice and experience the hidden powers of the universe.

There is an authentic need for spirituality in our lives—one that connects us with the sacred, something greater than ourselves, but that is also practical, touching the body and soul in deep and meaningful ways. While yoga offers us postures (or asanas), breathing, and meditation techniques, it may not always fulfill the deep desire for spiritual connection that has arisen. But when combined with the mystical tradition of Kabalah, it may be just the answer modern spiritual seekers are after.

Kabalah Yoga blends the movement and meditation of Hatha flow yoga with the ancient teachings of Kabalah, incorporating the wisdom of the Hebrew letters, also known as the Sacred Shapes, which are believed by Jewish mystics to be divine templates that contain the creative energy of the universe. This book describes the body, breath, and soul found within each of the Sacred Shapes, and shows that by moving your body into asanas based on each letter of the Hebrew alphabet and meditating on their meaning, you can unlock and embrace their great, empowering, and healing wisdom.

Kabalah Yoga brings a new form of awareness to the practice of yoga as a language of the soul, allowing you to journey deep within and discover yourself from the inside out, while tapping into the divine energy of each of the Sacred Shapes. With the explanations, insights, stories, meditations, and photographs in this book, you’ll enhance your practice and improve your life.
