Top Customer Reviews
Yoga Journal also recommended this book; "Living Your Yoga..." as another good read for her so I purchased it, like many of us, wanting to know how to bring this beautiful practice of Yoga that we love sooo much into our everyday lives!
I could not put this book down, fellow readers, what I found was sometimes overwhelming, especially since most of us in Western society are taught to think "from the neck up" and not from our hearts. Some of it could only be assimilated by much contemplation, like the statement that all of us humans have our reality defined by our beliefs and practices. Reading the chapter on suffering, that was a tough one, especially since I see so much of it in nursing and it is difficult to cultivate "detachment". In other ways, this book is almost like a workbook, giving practices for the reader to participate in and mantras to chant at the end of each chapter.
Then there is the last chapter on love...Well, I wont spoil the surprise but I am sure that no one will be disappointed!
