Editorial Reviews

Review

"Any time we talk about Yoga, we're talking about a practice interwoven with a personal journey. Dashama generously shares her story from the prison of pain to the jubilation of finding joy as a backdrop for understanding how the ancient practice of Yoga is relevant in the modern world for addressing the various issues of everyday life. Dashama writes with humor and, most importantly, with an infectious sense of joy."
—Felicia Marie Tomasko, editor in chief of LA YOGA Magazine and president of the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine

“Dashama has the gift of inspiration.  She is greatly inspired by the practice of yoga and her message will open your eyes to your true potential and leave you inspired too. Journey to Joyful is a wonderful book for all people interested in creating a life of health and happiness.”
—Baron Baptiste, author of Journey Into Power: How to Sculpt Your Ideal Body, Free your True Self and Transform your Life with Yoga

“Dashama is a rising star in the field of mind/body/spiritual health and personal development. She embodies a bright light and is an inspiration to everyone she meets. She has the unique ability to make complex and profound concepts very simple and approachable for everyone to learn, while keeping it light and fun.”
—Sirah Vettese, PhD, author of Spiritual Makeovers: 10 Practices for Falling in Love with Your Life

“Dashama is an exquisite example of beauty, love, integrity, professionalism, health, inquisitiveness, and yearning for learning that all future yoginis can strive for.”
—Mark Becker, yoga pioneer and CEO of NY Yoga Magazine and NewLife Magazine

"This book is a good intro to the benefits of yoga and yogic philosophy. Dashama writes about how to cultivate radiant health through nutrition, yoga and positive lifestyle habits, based on her own personal experiences. She also includes lots of pictures and descriptions of yoga poses!"
—Jenny Sansouci, Healthy Crush

"I have read a lot of books on yoga programs and ‘self-help,' and am pleased to say this book is one of the best I've encountered. ... [Dashama] describes ways to assess and change emotional habits that might keep people stuck, as well as eating habits, yoga philosophy and time management. This is a book about changing your life. ... I found it a thoroughly great and uplifting read."
—Alaina Zipp, New Consciousness Review

“[Journey To Joyful] shares the author's secrets of Pranshama Yoga and how it blends positive thinking and fun with yoga and approaches to overall nutrition and exercise. … An inspiration for any who would move beyond basic yoga practices.”

Format: Paperback
I've been watching Dashama's free video's online for awhile now, and have always been amazed at the amount of herself she gives so freely. She's an absolute encyclopedia of yogic knowledge, with wisdom that's sometimes hard to believe from such a young person. This book captures her insights and has catapulted my own practice 10 fold. It motivated me to bravely move forward in my own journey, which is what I was looking for. She also offers additional references, which I appreciate, for when I feel I've mastered what she offers here. The narratives between the suggestions for the asana's are great because it gives context - she talks about how to beat addictions, emotional prison keepers (like judgement) as well as where those mental decisions affect you physically. I highly recommend this book. I highly recommend Dashama.

As the book title promises, this really is an excellent guide on how to live a more Joyful life. I found the book had a really powerful and positive message. It contains some quite advanced yoga concepts in a very easy to read and enjoyable form. Best of all I can attest, having had the honour of spending a little time with Dashama, that she truly is very qualified to guide you into a more joyful life. Her energy and presence is joyful and full of positive energy. Thank you Dashama for sharing this empowering message with the world.

I have followed Dashama on social media for the last 6 months, & thoroughly enjoyed every minute! So much so that I wanted to discover more of her knowledge & "joyfulness". I ordered this book, which arrived 2 days ago. I cannot put it down, it is so well written. It is honest, pure, powerful knowledge, that is simply resonating with me so easily that it's actually taken me by surprise! I have bought a truckload of self-help type books over the years, with mixed reviews. However this one is honestly different! I am learning & absorbing so much in such a short time, it's amazing! I actually don't want it end..... I would encourage everyone to read this, it is beautiful, powerful & full of knowledge that can change your life. Dashama Konah Gordon is an amazing young woman with a very special talent & soul.....

Dashama is a great source of information regarding all things yoga! This book was very helpful in explaining the basics yoga philosophy & expanded nicely with some stories, both personal and timeless, in between. Dashama's personal stories were inspirational and motivational solidifying the good of yoga practice in action. I would recommend this book to anyone new to yoga who is looking to learn about basics of yoga philosophy & healthy living. I would add that this book is optimally used when paired with resources available through the purchase of the 30 day yoga challenge.

I have read and re-read this book two times since I originally purchased it. I am about to begin it again! Dashama has a beautiful way with words and she inspires us to live creatively and incorporate yoga and healthy living into our daily lives. I am also taking her 30 day yoga challenge and the book and course go hand in hand! What a blessing she is to the yoga world, great book ... inspiring teacher and beautiful soul!

Moral schizophrenia at it's best. The author states that love is her religion and speaks of non-violence to all beings. Then we turn the page and she says she likes to eat other sentient beings to give herself some muscle mass. Appears ethics and morality don’t apply to all sentient life…just humans. The book contains speciesist and carnist recipes that are completely unnecessary. Read this book for the yoga postures then watch Forks over Knives (health), Cowspiracy (Environmental), and Earthlings (Ethics) and find a path that truly supports the planet and compassion.

Very rarely has a book or author inspired me to learn more about them or their message. The bible inspires me to learn more about Jesus and his teachings. Dashama words have inspired me towards a deeper connection with who I am and my life's passion to teach and coach others. Life is about transforming ourselves and outlets around us to reach our full potential.
Loved this book and Author!
