Description

Awaken Your Wild Nature and Deepen Your Relationship with Earth

This wonderfully fresh and revelatory book invites you to create a personal yoga practice that seamlessly melds health and well-being with spiritual insight, Earth stewardship, and cultural transformation. Wilderness guide and yoga instructor Rebecca Wildbear came to yoga after a life-threatening encounter with cancer in her twenties. Over years of teaching and healing, she devised the unique and user-friendly practice she presents in Wild Yoga. In this book, she guides you in connecting to the natural world and living from your soul while also addressing environmental activism. Whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, by engaging in this vibrant approach, you’ll discover greater levels of love, purpose, and creativity, along with the active awareness we know our planet deserves.

Endorsements

“Rebecca Wildbear understands mysticism as a wildly complex and important dimension of life, one we moderns have ignored and even dispelled. She is a mystic, as we all are. Reading Wild Yoga has convinced me that mysticism is not something we learn so much as uncover, rediscover. We need not do this alone. With Rebecca Wildbear as a guide — in the physical wilderness, and now on the page — we deepen our knowledge that we all embody the sacred in nature, which holds the key to both our survival and our evolution. This fills me with hope.”
— Brooke Williams, author of Mary Jane Wild: Two Walks and a Rant

“Yoga practice has always been about cultivating a deeper connection with nature. And yet, as our culture has become increasingly disconnected from the natural world, so too has the yoga world. In this refreshing book of storytelling and practice, Rebecca Wildbear vividly invites us back to the place where yoga, care for the Earth, and humanity are interwoven, a place where we can dream of a livable future on Earth.”
— Amy Ippoliti, coauthor of The Art and Business of Teaching Yoga, yoga teacher, and Earth advocate

“In Wild Yoga, Rebecca Wildbear offers a gentle path leading us toward both personal healing and planetary care. Her method is embodied and soulful, informed by Earth’s wisdom, supported by yoga practice — and designed to deeply motivate activism. May we follow her lead.”
— Laura Sewall, PhD, ecopsychologist and author of Sight and Sensibility: The Ecopsychology of Perception

“Rebecca Wildbear is a force of nature. This important and beautifully written book is not only a powerful new way to look at yoga; it’s a clear and exhilarating guide to reconnecting to our animal bodies and to the wild nature that is our real home. We all owe a deep debt to Rebecca for writing this profound book.”
— Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words

“In this lyrical, honest, and kind book, Rebecca Wildbear invites you through simple and profound practices to deepen your connection to yourself, nature, and the planet. Wild Yoga is a timely guide at this inflection point for the Earth, one that will help you find better yoga, or union.”
— Sage Rountree, PhD, E-RYT 500, author of Everyday Yoga and Teaching Yoga Beyond the Poses

Wild Yoga beautifully combines land-based mysticism with a deep and necessary focus on embodiment. Rebecca Wildbear offers up a set of practices to encourage us to show up: to reconnect with our own wild nature, and with the soul of this embattled Earth.”
— Sharon Blackie, MA, PhD, author of Hagitude

“Weaving her personal experiences as a cancer survivor, yoga teacher, and wilderness guide, Rebecca Wildbear charts a journey for all seekers to become ‘love warriors for the Earth,’ protecting the great forests and waterways of our planet. Wild Yoga is a treasure — a brilliant road map for these tumultuous times.”
— Dr. Suzanne Simard, forest ecologist and author of Finding the Mother Tree
