Writing Yoga: A Guide to Keeping a Practice Journal

Writing Yoga: A Guide to Keeping a Practice Journal

$14.95
More Info
Writer and editor Bruce Black began studying yoga in 2006, after his knees could no longer stand the stress of running. Shortly after taking his first class, he started keeping a journal to explore his experiences on the mat. Out of his journal and his devotion to Anusara Yoga has emerged a book that delves into the nexus of yoga, writing, and life.

In Writing Yoga, Bruce begins by sharing tips he has learned along the way: the benefits of keeping a practice journal, how to select just the right blank book, writing at different times of day, how often to write, and more.

He has organized the book into ten chapters by theme--each with guided writing exercises:

1. Opening Up
2. Moving Past Fear
3. Accepting Gifts
4. Paying Attention
5. Awakening to Connections
6. Trusting the Process
7. Just Sitting
8. Finding Your Balance
9. Learning to Breathe
10. Listening to Your Inner Voice

Part memoir, part writing guide, Bruce weaves in excerpts from his own journal throughout. He reflects on practice as life: the excitement of walking into his first yoga class, apprehension about bending backward, discomfort with body appearance, the yoga of family relationships, the exhilaration of coming into a headstand for the first time, deepening appreciation for his teachers, and waking up to the exquisite beauty of the world around him.

Bruce guides you in stepping onto your mat and picking up your journal with curiosity and commitment. He shows how your journal can become a good friend, a confidant, a tool to deepen your experience of asana and pranayama, and a mindfulness practice in itself.

Whether you keep a practice journal already or want to start one, let Bruce and Writing Yoga guide you. Maybe you'll write a sentence a day, maybe more. Perhaps you'll come to your journal only now and then. What matters: exhale and give it a try!

As Christmas Eve approaches, Yoon learns more and more about this exciting holiday. But no matter how hard she tries to convince her parents to sing Christmas songs or put up Christmas stockings, they always say no. A determined Yoon soon realizes that she must use her own "Shining Wisdom" to persuade her parents that they can indeed be a Christmas family.
