The New Rules of Posture: How to Sit, Stand, and Move in the Modern Worldby Mary Bond- This book approaches postural changes from the inside out. Mary Bond explains that healthy posture comes from a new sense we can learn to feel, not by training our muscles into an ideal shape. Mary contends that posture is the physical action we take to orient ourselves in relation to situations, emotions, and people; in order to improve our posture, we need to examine both our physical postural traits and the self-expression that underlies the way we sit, stand, and move. In An Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness by Peter A. Levine PhD -based on the idea that trauma is neither a disease nor a disorder, but rather an injury caused by fright, helplessness and loss that can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, the book elegantly blends the latest findings in biology, neuroscience and body-oriented psychotherapy to show that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings. Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind, and Body in the Healing of Trauma by Bassel Van Der Kolk, MD- Van Der Kolk uses recent scientific advances to show how trauma literally reshapes both body and brain, compromising sufferers’ capacities for pleasure, engagement, self-control, and trust. He explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity.

Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science that Will Transform Your Sex Lifeby Emily Nagoski, PHd- This book explores the cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines which tells us that the most important factor for women in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed or how you do it, but how you feel about it. Which means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman’s sexual wellbeing; they are central to it.
