I will definitely reread Noah Karrasch's fine book and would love to use it as a text for yoga teacher and yoga therapy trainings. Noah's work integrates all of the top thinkers on fascia, vagus, mind/body, energy and healing into a readable and useful model that helps therapists remember why we do this healing work.

I have had over 50 sessions with Noah and consider his work at the top of the bodywork movement. Read and heed this inspirational message.

This easy-to-read book thoughtfully shares Noah's wisdoms gleaned from a lifetime of living with the process of healing the bodymind. He adds to the deepness of his extensive experience by grounding it within the research and practice of other contemporary leaders in the field. I plan to keep this resource handy to read whenever my physical listening senses need a honing!

Noah's book is a profound integration of cutting edge concepts in physiology, health and integrative medicine. In my view, this book (especially the first five chapters) should be required reading for all healers, beginning with physicians of all specialities, psychologists, and therapists of any persuasion. His understanding of the autonomic nervous system, and the impact of heart rate variability on overall health and function is a must read for any health practitioner. He makes very difficult material easy to understand. The second half of the book will be of great value to any body worker/movement therapist. Noah's practical applications of his BodyMindCORE concepts are useful, and helpful. As a client/patient, I have frequently benefited from Noah's BodyMindCORE work. He helps me breathe, move, and grow in a way that few others can.

Weaving insights from body-centered therapeutic realms, mind-centered psychology and heart-centered practices such as yoga, Noah Karrasch has created a wonderful synergy between Western practicalities and Eastern modalities. Yoga teachers, of which I am one, will benefit from hearing what he has to say, as will their students.

Having worked in the fitness and bodywork industry for over two decades, I've had the privilege to be taught by the inspirational and knowledgeable Noah Karrasch. His unique approach combines decades of study, knowledge and personal experience. I have passed on his hidden gems and techniques to hundreds of my own students over the years with startling and profound results. His model, philosophy and approach give guaranteed results. Noah shares his perspective on opening and loosening the BodyMindCORE, in order to unwind and release inner tension. This tension can cause a reduction in circulation, resulting in a lack of energy within the body, often leading to pain. Whether you are a bodywork professional or enthusiast, there is something for everybody in this book, due to Noah's clear and concise explanation. A fascinating read - highly recommended!
This book has a good underpinning of knowledge to give an understanding of the body and the BodyMindCORE concept. The exercises could be used by yoga and movement practitioners along with remedial practitioners. It is also a book I would recommend for practitioners for self-care and nurturing which is so important for people within the caring professions.
