There are many books about yoga on the market today but this one stands out because it is written from the author's self-discovered and profound truth. Elissa has used both her yoga and her life experience (including a great moose story) to probe deeper levels of awareness and understanding. She offers, not a solution, but a process a process, that if followed, will provide the reader with ways to engage their body as a guide for living a full and authentic life. A 'must read' for all who seek a higher path written with passion, compassion, and elegance. --Michael Lee, MA, Founder, Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy
The Forgotten Body delivers a balanced summary of ancient values of Yoga coupled with the supporting modern science in a very readable, moving flow. The interlaced story of Elissa's experience sustains the flow and brings this work to a comfortable closure while maintaining the momentum into our stories of embodiment. A wonderful balance to the West's bias toward the outer, consumer-based search for wholeness. --Matthew J. Taylor, PT, PhD, RYT Dynamic Systems Rehabilitation, Scottsdale, AZ, President, International Assoc. of Yoga Therapists

In elegant language, she proposes that those physical pains we experience reflect back to us something we have endured (or continue to endure) in our lives. Cobb asks us to become aware of what our bodies communicate to us, and in a loving, nonjudgmental way, coaxes us to understand more deeply where the meaning of those messages lie. From that understanding, we can begin the process of true healing. With this insight, Cobb takes us beyond the realm of intellectual "talk therapy." Through various exercises, (where yes, you do use your body), you become better attuned to what makes you-you. It is a process of continuous discovery, a constant journey that may lead you to unexpected, long forgotten places.
For those of us on a journey of self discovery, (who are most of us!)
I cannot recommend this book enough.
