Yoga is special to me. I am not a yoga teacher, nor can I complete all the poses perfectly in class. I am no yoga expert, but I do receive many benefits when I practice yoga regularly. I have seen changes in my health, my happiness and my flexibility. Yoga is medicine!
Today, I have gathered a number of books that are all a little bit different having to do with yoga. Some are more like journals, others novels, and of course many of the yoga books have pretty pictures of yoga poses. I enjoy each book for improving my yoga knowledge and my yoga practice.
Yoga and the Pursuit of Happiness – A Guide to Finding Joy in Unexpected Places Sam Chase
This book shows the importance of not taking things for granted. It allows you to focus on the basic moments in life and to be happy and content no matter what. Instead of your typical yoga book that is filled with yoga poses, it is more of a journal and a self help guide that points you to finding happiness through the journey of enlightenment. It was a peaceful read that opened up my heart a little further to not think about all the troubles in life – but the happiness I can find in everything.
This book has a vast knowledge of information on Yoga Nidra. It goes into great detail for anyone that wants to know more. As a beginner in this practice, I found it very well done. This would be a key book to have if you are a yoga instructor! So much information and guidance in one book, it’s a must have yoga book!
I carry all my stress in my neck and shoulders. I think many of us do! This yoga book makes me aware of when I need to take a break from the computer and do some stretches. There are some really helpful poses that I have benefited from in here! I can feel the tightness loosen pretty quickly!
