Eddie Stern is a yoga teacher, author, and lecturer from New York City. He is known for his multidisciplinary approach to furthering education and access to yoga, as well as his teaching expertise in Ashtanga Yoga. Eddie says:
“Yoga is a recalibration. A resetting of our system. Yoga teaches us patience and restraint, and ways that we can gradually begin to choose how we are going to participate in our lives and in the world.”
Freedom comes from when we are able to choose wisely the best direction for you to go in that will bring about the greatest amount of ultimate good not just for yourself, but for society or your family and the people around you.
When we are struggling with things mentally, emotionally and physically it means we are not too sure where to create healthy boundaries. Yoga can help us create healthy boundaries, know our actual limits and develop greater Self awareness.”
Drawing on modern neuroscience, ancient wisdom, and decades of practice and teaching, Eddie Stern reveals how what we do—from diet to chanting, from postures to meditation, from ethical practices to breathing techniques—affects who we become, and how a steady routine of activities and attitudes can transform our bodies, our brain functions, our emotions, and our experience of life.
He recently created The Breathing App, which guides the user in a paced breathing exercise that balances the nervous system, helping to improve sleep, and reduce stress and anxiety. One Simple Thing: A New Look at the Science of Yoga and How It Can Transform Your Life is his first solo book.
“Eddie Stern shows how ancient wisdom and modern science can enrich each other. Eddie is both deeply trained in yoga and highly informed about psychology and the brain. He puts it all together in very practical ways, showing how to develop lasting calm, love, and inner peace.”
