Yoga 365: Daily Wisdom for Life, On and Off the Mat
Life is decidedly busy for most people, but surely everyone can set aside a few minutes every day for a bit of inspirational reading. Susanna Harwood Rubin, a yoga teacher and writer, has put together this lovely little book to inspire readers both on and off the mat on a daily basis. Yoga 365 is full of short passages–three-hundred and sixty-five, to be exact–that use mythology, observation, introspection, and, of course, yoga poses to get readers thinking. Each passage is numbered by a day of the year, making it simple to find a daily passage to read first thing in the morning, after yoga practice, before bedtime, or whenever readers have a spare five minutes. The passages are about topics like practicing generosity to create abundance, grounding oneself, breathing, and more. This book would make an ideal gift for the yogi (dedicated, periodic, or aspiring) in your life; make sure you pick up a copy to keep on your own bedside table, too!
