Having said that however, I have felt totally inspired, not to mention enthused, about some of the suggestions that I read in Writing Yoga - which makes me excited about the entire process.
I particularly love the exerpts "from my journal", which makes me feel as though I am getting a secret glimpse into the author's life and his own practice.
My favorite chapter is "Trusting the Process" which I found myself rereading 3 times.
Very well written for both yogis and beginners alike, this book is loaded with great ideas, but is also a fun read, making yoga interesting and very challenging.
I am keeping this book as a reference guide which I know I will be using over and over again.
I wholeheartedly agree with what this book highlights so beautifully, that a journal is another prop -- like a block, belt, bolster or blanket--to use in your yoga practice.
Writing Yoga validated my habit of keeping a journal within reach of my yoga mat so that I can scribble anytime, to my heart's content, after, and even in the midst of, my yoga practice.
Yogis, like most mortals, need encouragement to write their truth about the whole of life, their whole yoga practice, on and off the mat. They also need a muse to pull them by the hair onto their mat. This book delivers both--I highly recommend it!

Not exactly a how-to which is what I was looking for. Author talks a lot about his personal experience with yoga and touched a bit on writing.Published on October 18, 2013 by onelove
I am in Yoga Teacher Training and our daily homework is to write in a journal about Yoga. Reading this book helped me with my assignments and getting over writers block.Published on November 20, 2012 by Yoga Princess
This is another "one person's yoga journey" story, not really a handbook or manual on how to write about yoga, or how to use journaling to enrich your yoga. Read morePublished on November 4, 2011 by Martha
