Portuguese to English: blurb for "Darshan Yoga: A Woman's Approach to a Balanced Life"
Detailed field: Esoteric practices
Source text - Portuguese
Se você já ouviu falar sobre Yoga e ficou com vontade de experimentar suas práticas, mas se assustou com a ideia de ficar de ponta-cabeça ou de dar nó no corpo, então este livro tem o seu endereço.

Nele são ensinadas práticas simples e seguras, que poderão ser realizadas, perfeitamente, por alguém que nunca tenha entrado em contato com o Yoga. Não se faz necessário um equipamento especial para o Darshan Yoga, que pode ser praticado no jardim de sua casa ou na intimidade de seu quarto; contudo, é preciso um conhecimento racional das práticas sugeridas neste livro, como a pré-fixação de um dia determinado, de um local e horários convenientes, para realizá-las.

O livro mantém o foco nas necessidades femininas mais presentes, como preparação para concepção, gestação, parto, pós-parto, síndromes menstruais,
TPM, climatério e menopausa, não se esgotando aí.

Em suma visa auxiliar as mulheres no processo de se tornarem conscientes e responsáveis por si mesmas, conhecendo sua verdadeira identidade e tomando as próprias rédeas da saúde e bem estar, alcançando, assim, a chave para lidar com estes tempos de transformação.

If you have heard about Yoga and have been curious to try it, but get nervous about the idea of turning upside-down and every-which way, or tying yourself in an accidental knot, then this book is for you.

In this book, you will find a series of simple and safe exercises that are relatively easy to master even if you
have never done Yoga before. You don’t need any special equipment to practice Darshan Yoga; you can
do it in the yard of your house, or in the privacy of your own bedroom.

What is necessary, however, to gain an understanding of the rationale behind the practices suggested in this book, such as setting a specific time and place in your day to practice, when and wherever it is convenient for you.

The book focuses on the most pressing of women's needs, such as trying to conceive, pregnancy, birth post-partum, PMS, and menopause, to name a few.

In sum, this book aims to aid women in the process of becoming more self-responsive and self-aware, better learning our true identities, and taking the reins for our own health and well-being. In so doing, we can find the key to surviving and living well during these times of transformation.

Bio
I am a well-educated translator working in a variety of fields. My interests are very broad-raging, although most of my translation work up to now has been in marketing, yoga, academic articles about art and philosophy, and human resource management.


I received a BA in Linguistics from Georgetown University in 2008. During my undergraduate study, I first developed my translation experience while studying Portuguese and Video Production in São Paulo, Brazil at PUC-São Paulo in 2007. After receiving my BA, I worked translating some online marketing materials and an e-book (available here on Kindle) for a start-up company.



I also recently completed an MA in Visual and Critical Studies from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.



I am currently based in Chicago, Illinois.
