As a yoga teacher if your only going to buy one book this year let this be the one ,I really cant say enough good things about it , as I read and work with it more I find more and more, a very enriching book .This will be a staple for me for a very long time .
This book guides you deeply into yoga inquiry, contemplation and insight. Key word; deeply. I got my copy signed last fall while working alongside Danny Arguetty in Massachusets but didn't have time to really read it until I returned home to the midwest. Since then I've worn it out. I use it to teach yoga, train teachers, and most importantly to enhance my own practice. It delights me that many friends, teachers and collegues inspired so many of it's chapters, in that regard it feels very intimate. However you don't have to personally know a soul and incredible teachers will speak to you directly through Danny and his amazing ability to write. You will be astonished at how rich and authentic this book is. Its all there, languaging, visualization, pranayama, asana and lovely closing ritual. Beautifully articulated and beautifully illustrated. If I had to get rid of all the books in my library and could only keep one this is the one I'd keep. It continues to surprise me and definately nourishes me. I thank the author for all the effort he put into nourishing the teacher. There is no other book like it.
This book is filled with valuable teaching ideas, experiences, and knowledge for yoga teachers...and students. Danny's way of writing is inviting. He shares his vast and varied yoga teaching and yoga study with great generousity. Like a teacher willing to give away all their best teaching tools and tricks. He is so well-rounded in his approach that no matter what style ot type of yoga you take or teach, this book is sure to expand your horizons and expertise. If you have been teachng yoga for a while and are looking for inspiration, this is your book. If you are a student and want to make your personal practice richer or get more from the classes you are taking, this is your book. Truly nourishing
This book is a true gem for yoga teachers and yoga students. I have been teaching yoga for 8 years and this book has raised my teaching to an amazing new level. My students connect to the themes, Danny's personal stories and have deepened their practice. There is no other book out there like this one!
It is rare to find a book whose mission is to help yoga teachers sustain their creativity, inspiration and vision in order to be a light for others. Nourishing the Teacher is such a find. It is full of poetry, essays, suggestions for teaching and beautiful artwork that make it a very versatile and flexible work. You can turn to it for your own practice for those days when your body needs help leading you home. You can use it for ideas for your yoga classes, for it contains suggestions for inquiries, themes and exercises on innumerable yoga topics. You can use it for inspiration, for it is bursting with quotes, poetry and reflections that sustain us on the path. For the reader, the book has to be approached as both a resource and a work of art--it is so full it would be too rich to take it all in in a few sittings. You can grab it to look up a theme, an interpretation of the Yamas or Niyamas or a deity you wish to know better. But better yet, make a cup of tea and quietly sit with a few pages and let the text and artwork refresh you. Helene McGlauflin, counselor, writer and Kripalu Yoga Teacher
Michael S. This was the first book I have ever considered buying twice, so that I could have both the Kindle edition with me everywhere for reference, and also have the paper book for its beautiful content and just to have out. A great book for any yogi, meditator, body-worker, or just for someone on a spiritual path of self-awareness. Great content, beautifully illustrated as well. It's a book I know I will keep coming back to again and again.
