Bloomington, Indiana, UNITED STATES

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As the present world faces the challenges brought by COVID-19, racism, polarizing politics, unemployment, homeschooling and economic collapse, there is a need for people to manage their personal situations with patience, clarity, courage and compassion. In “Finding Balance in Uncertain Times” (published by Balboa Press), author Nancy Sanks, offers a resource — through the practice of yoga — for those struggling with uncertainty and change.


“Over the past few years my students, as well as myself, were experiencing unexpected deaths of loved ones, loss of physical and mental abilities, illness, becoming caretakers for aging parents and sometimes grandchildren. The list can go on but you get the idea,” Sanks shares. “So, I offered a workshop on finding balance in uncertain times. Taking a yoga practice they were familiar with and reframing it into a first aid kit for uncertain times.”


This body/mind/spirit book reaches out to to those who are struggling with life changes. It provides tools to create space around whatever it is they are facing and breathe new life and possibility into it. Using breath (pranayam), movement and poses (asanas), and mindfulness (meditation), the book guides readers to a path of physical, mental and spiritual balance.


The overall concept of “Finding Balance in Uncertain Times” is about providing ways to move forward in the midst of turmoil and to help people find inner peace. “I would like the readers to take away a sense of confidence that they can begin to heal themselves or, at least, to the get to the point where they are able to ask for help,” the author adds.


Easy to read and straight to the point, “Finding Balance in Uncertain Times” makes the teachings of yoga available to anyone with a desire to embody loving kindness and a healthy lifestyle. To purchase a copy and know more, visit
