Reads, Writes, Eats and Cooks
Dear Fellow Yogis Near and Far,
I invite you to join the book club hosted by Community Yoga in West Lafayette (and Lafayette) Indiana. I’ll be offering bi-weekly notes and discussion prompts starting January 4th leading up to an April 1st workshop at the studio complete with an asana practice inspired by the reading, as well as a book discussion. Read along, join the open online discussion, the protected group discussion (email for a password at firstname.lastname@example.org) and attend the workshop. Do it all or in part as your schedule allows.
Living Your Yoga: Finding the Spiritual in Everyday Life is our first book. I was inspired by the Patanjali 101 online course I just completed with Judith Lasater. I enjoyed her commitment to cultivating yoga principles both on and off the mat. As a mom, I related to a lot of her stories and struggles. The book is organized in short thematic chapters that are easy to read. I found it a gentle introduction to yoga philosophy that avoids pedantic technical theorizing and perfect for starting conversations.
The main question she prompts me to ask myself is:
If the road to holiness passes through the world of action, what is your road?
I hope you join the conversation and help me with directions.
Wishing you goodness and ease,
