Join us for a live discussion with the author, Megha Nancy Buttenheim.

Can we build brain health, heart health, and soul health by moving our bodies?

Yes, according to Megha Nancy Buttenheim, MA, author of Expanding Joy. For the first time, Megha’s teachings on the mind-body connection are accessible to multitudes. Her beautiful book dives into the theory—from both the yogic and psychological perspectives—behind the magical thing Megha calls Let Your Yoga Dance, but she doesn’t stop there. With engaging, short videos that complement the book, Megha guides readers through some of the embodied practices she describes. This way, readers can enliven their minds with her written word and experience her teachings through the movement and meditation practices in the videos. The two minutes I just spent with the “Breath with Movement” video have left me feeling more centered and grounded. Definitely time well spent!

Maybe you’ve had the opportunity to Let Your Yoga Dance with Megha at Kripalu (where she’s been teaching for many years) or elsewhere, been moved to tears and filled with joy, and want to understand what happened. Maybe you haven’t tried Let Your Yoga Dance before but want to live with more joy. Either way, this book is for you.

Are you ready to dive deeper, and then talk with Megha and learn more about embodying resilience, gratitude, zest, and other qualities that support happiness? Mark your calendars for this special discussion with the author, and feel free to leave a comment about the book below.
