If you notice you’re in the moment, you’re present, you’re paying attention to every detail, savoring the moment, you win. You are a success! If you notice you’re not in the moment, you’re not present, you’re not paying attention to every detail, not savoring the moment, you loose. 

The End.

Imagine what could happened if we all focused on the intention this week! The purpose of focusing on the intention, or question for a week is
to practice it, so it can be called upon always and forever.


Remember, everyone is on their own path at their own pace, and we all have the same value. Also, while examining the intention and answering the question, make sure you’re not hurting yourself or anyone else.


Please practice yoga safely, and pause or stop when you need to pause or stop.  Listen to your body! Also, please consult a doctor before engaging in the practice of yoga. The Yoga Book blog, it’s affiliates, etc. do not take any responsibility for injuries, actions etc. which may occur as a result of doing yoga, focusing on the question/intention, or doing “Today’s Class.” Also, The Yoga Book blog is not intended to be a substitute for professional help. It is simply information based on experience and some research. Remember, you are making your own choices ~ following your own path, your own heart.
‘Tis up to you, what you do, and your sole responsibility. It is also your responsibility please, to seek the professional help you may need in
dealing with the issues that may arise in your life.

…And we all need a little help, sometimes :)


The Yoga Book

The Yoga Book is a personal journal for your insights, inspirations and experiences after a yoga class! It can also help you determine which style of yoga, class, or instructor is right for you…

“The idea for The Yoga Book came to me in a yoga class! I saw it clearly in my mind and I needed somewhere to write it down. Also, I had recently met with an Indian medical doctor, who had said “Different styles of yoga effect people differently, so it is important to know which ‘style of yoga’ is right for you.” So, I decided to create a book, where people could journal about their experiences in a yoga class, write about the different postures – how they felt, get inspired, and write about their insights… Sometimes I would come to class with a problem, any problem, and leave with a solution! And when I did, I’d write it down somewhere, so I decided to create The Yoga Book.” 

- Creator of The Yoga Book

*It has 100 pages for notes, and on each page it has an inspirational quote, a space for the date, class, and instructor’s name, and it will be available on Amazon.com very soon!
