By making yoga and meditation easy for anyone, Taylor gives athletes a way to do recovery right. Just 5 minutes a day of “working in” can prime athletes for faster, fuller recovery and higher performance. With unprecedented access to training data and workout bragging rights on social networks, athletes are doing everything they can to “win the workout” and keep pace with the athletes around them.

Athletes must also “work in” to gain full recovery, when the body rebuilds for higher performance. Taylor’s Work In program brings real recovery to athletes wherever they are—at home or on the trail, track, field, or court. Work In techniques can be performance anywhere with minimal or no props and can be easily incorporated into any training plan. Work In offers · Low time commitment—just 5 minutes a day to fully integrate recovery into training · A 28-day recovery plan to introduce meditation and restorative yoga · 11 meditations for athletes and 3 visualizations for brain training and mental focus · 27 poses and 4 restorative yoga routines for physical relaxation · Tips to get started and prompts to stay engaged Erin Taylor’s Work In will help athletes balance working out with working in so they can close the gap between where they are and where they want to be.

"The feeling was electric-energy humming through my body. I felt like blood was pouring into areas of my tissues that it had not been able to reach for some time. It was relieving and healing, subtler than the feeling from getting off on drugs, but it was detectable and lovely, and of course, there was no hangover, just a feeling of more ease than I could remember. I felt a warmth come over me similar to what I felt when I had done heroin, but far from the darkness of that insanity, this was pure light-a way through." - Tommy Rosen, on his first yoga experience Most of us deal with addiction in some form. While you may not be a fall-down drunk, anorexic, or a gambling addict, you likely struggle with addiction in other ways. Workaholism, overeating, and compulsively engaging with technology like video games, texting, and Facebook are also highly common examples. And if you don't suffer from addiction, chances are you know someone who does. Through more than 20 years of recovery and in working professionally with others, Tommy Rosen has uncovered core elements of recovery and healing, what he refers to as Recovery 2.0. In the book, he shares his own past struggles with addiction, and powerful, tested tools for breaking free from the obstacles that stand in the way of a holistic and lasting recovery. Building off the key tenets of the 12-Step program, he has developed an innovative approach that includes • Looking at the roots of addiction; your family history and "Addiction Story" • Daily breathing practices, meditation, yoga, and body awareness • A healthy, alkaline-based diet to aid with detox, boost immunity, increase vitality, support your entire recovery, and help prevent relapse • Discovering your mission, living on purpose, and being of service to others Recovery 2.0 will help readers not only release their addictions, but thrive in their recovery.
