BERNARDSVILLE – Borough resident Pamela Seelig will be signing copies of her new book, âThreads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations to Weave into Your Practice,â from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 2 at The Bookworm, 99 Claremont Route.
published by Shambhala Publications, Inc. and distributed by Penguin Random House, the book is described as the “ideal guide for practitioners and teachers who wish to connect with the spiritual wisdom of yoga, deepen their personal practice, or develop and support a theme for a yoga class.”
âYoga attracts many practitioners because of its physical benefits, but it is often the experience of peace that people come back to,â according to the cover of the book. âThreads of Yoga supports those looking to learn more about the deeper spiritual teachings of yoga. Each short chapter presents a fundamental yogic theme, such as letting go, breathing, yamas and niyamas, and the chakra system. Each theme is accompanied by practices, including meditation, complementary poses, breathing work or quotes to contemplate. ”
Seelig, a resident of Dryden Road, has been a dedicated yoga practitioner, student and teacher for over 25 years.
In 1991, when illness interrupted her career on Wall Street, she began meditating as complementary therapy with powerful results. In addition to accelerating recovery, the impact of meditation and yoga has led to an ongoing quest to perceive yogic wisdom.
She trained primarily at the Integral Yoga Institute in New York and San Francisco in Hatha and Raja Yoga. Seelig has studied with many of the world’s greatest yoga luminaries today.
Seelig started teaching yoga to friends at a local convent in New Jersey in 2006. Her classes mushroomed and in 2009 she opened a yoga studio, Lotus Mind & Body Studio on Claremont Road.
After nine rewarding years, she sold the studio and started working on “Threads of Yoga: Themes, Reflections, and Meditations to Weave into Your Practice”.
She now practices yoga, gives classes and workshops, writes, and is an empty breeder with her husband, Bob, and dog, Bodhi.
