I'm admittedly a huge fan of Judith Hanson Lasater's other works, so naturally I was anticipating her latest offering: "A Year Of Living Your Yoga". Borrowing the theme of her other popular publication, "Living Your Yoga", Lasater has created a daily meditation style book that gives bite sized wisdom that you can use daily. Each day, there is a proverb along with a suggestion of how to apply it to your day to day life. For those who want live their yoga and not just "do" yoga, this is a nice little way to do it.

This is a fantastic book to use if you are a yoga teacher. It gives great ideas for class themes, or to use in your own practice. The writings are thought provoking and uplifting. A good read, even if you don't practice yoga.

Short and concise meditations, the perfect way to start the day with a positive and uplifting thought. A helpful reminder of what is really important in our (often) hectic lives.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Jill Florio VINE VOICE on July 5, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This small hardback book falls under the category of "calendar book" and is also what I term a "bathroom book."

You don't sit down and read this like a novel - what you get are tiny, thoughtful blurbs, one for each date of they year, about bringing yoga into all areas of your life.

Sometimes the book is a bit too simple with nuggets like: You need a red pair of shoes! Drive the speed limit! Or, chocolate is sacred and you deserve to eat some!

And there are a lot of family-oriented homilies such as reminders to model behavior for your grandchildren. This is a wasted day if you don't have children, much less grandkids! But in the days where something does not apply to me I try to mentally replace the words, as in, "model behavior for your nieces," or just flip around to find a blurb that speaks to me instead of the one slotted for that particular date.

The VAST majority of the daily aphorisms (teachings) are quite thoughtful, providing good spiritual reminders towards bringing your yoga practice into your daily existence. Sometimes I resist these little "daily dose" type books as simplistic and honey, but this one is worthwhile.

For example, September 23 reminds us the nature of the mind is to be agitated. The author gently reminds us in an aphorism about meditation that this is to be expected, and that's it's better to *be* with your mental agitation than to try to control or eliminate it. June 29th just recently reminded me to love people in spite of themselves, in spite of myself (a very useful daily mantra when seeking peace in all kinds of frustrating interactions).

One can use this book also as an adjunct to writing in a personal yoga journal. If I wasn't lazy about journaling, I think I'd find that pretty useful.

This book I purchased to read to my students as we begin our yoga practice. The meditations are short and sweet and start our practice off just right. I highly recommend this.

This is an excellent product for a teacher to use for the "goal setting" at the end of each class. It is also wonderful for anyone searching for a "daily goal". I highly recommend it.
