Can our bodies tell the stories of our life?  A fascinating account of how our thoughts, concerns and deeply routed energetic qualities manifest within our physcial structure.  A revealing account of whther our lives imprint on our bodies or our bodies can clearly highlight difficulties that we may not even be aware of.  A brilliant read; recommended to me through teacher training.  A slightly older book (first printed in the 1970s) but insightful and applicable tool to gain a greater insight into our own body and those who you may be practising with.

LIVING YOUR YOGA, Finding the spiritual in everyday life  Judith Lasater


As if someone climbed right inside your head and made sense of all that confusing chatter.  A fabulous read with true reflections on some of our greatest concerns; control, suffering and success to name just a few.  A book that I am sure I will return to again and again to find the perspective I need in my daily life and to inspire students.  Containing practice suggestions and daily mantras that touch the soul and that I will certainly be using to keep myself grounded.  A practical toolkit to living yoga realising that our practice is not confined to an hour in a studio or church hall once a week or that glorious 10 minutes in the morning, but every moment of every day.  An inspiration!
