Helpful book needs hardcopy

I found this book very helpful and enjoyable. However, I am surprised that it's available as audio book as I don't find this format suitable for this particular type of book. I ordered it as hardcopy as I feel it's a book that invites and requires regular picking back up.

Good for yoga mantras

If you are practicing or teaching yoga there are some insightful mantras to take into your practice or teachings. Not really a story as it is about yoga practing and theory. Good for yoga and life in general.

Highly recommended

As a newly qualified teacher I found this book immensely helpful and inspirational. Really practical, balanced advice, well read and explained by one of the authors. Enough help and guidance given to set you well on the way but boundless opportunities to expand, grow and make the ideas your own. Loved it!

Good practical inspiration

Even though I'm not yoga teacher myself, I am on a new journey and I'm building my own sessions. I found this thought provoking and was able to give myself some structure and variance for home practice.

For the Peak Performance and spiritual yogis

The presentation of so much of yogic philosophy in a way that is accessible to both the spiritual yogi and the peak performance yogi. This book is taking my teaching to a new place. I ended up buying the paperback too because the nature of audio books don't lending themselves to contemplation or thought work, the paperback helps me do the homework. The audio book has been helpful in finding interesting themes and then using the paperback to expand my own thinking.

I Will Purchase the Book

This was very interesting. I am buying the book. The idea of not only using these themes once I start teaching yoga and creating my own themes to help my individual students is a wonderful idea.

not here for the audio

I like the content but the narrator makes it really hard to get through. It reads like a listicle and so it's hard to focus on the information, as I found the narrator's voice distracting. I would rather read this myself than listen to the audiobook.

I loved everything about this book!

It helped me revive my own yoga practice along with putting fresh and creative energy into my teaching. Exactly what I needed after 2020! Sage generously shares a wealth of yogic information and clarity. 🙏🏽 Namaste.

Put this on your self!!!!!!

This is a great book for all yoga teachers to have on their shelf. Well written and full of great information for yoga on and off the mat. I love the themes they listed. This also gave me great ideas for future themes for my yoga classes. Definitely a book worth having 🤗
