Weekly Notes

Have you ever noticed yourself rushing around ~ when you have plenty of time? Why? What are you running from…? STOP RUNNING! It’s o.k. We all have crosses to bear…even if you think you don’t, you do and it’s o.k.

It’s up to you to Stop Running, and if you stop running, you ‘give the gift of taking your time’ to other people, even if it’s indirectly or without your knowledge. 

Many things happen without our knowledge…

You make a difference in the universe, in whatever you decide to do.

Monthly Notes

If you’re about to do something that you don’t want to do, which is also good for you; stop, take a deep breath and resolve to do it very slowly!

Yearly Notes

Only good can come from slowing down…so schedule your day with enough time to take your time. 🙂

About The Yoga Book

The Yoga Book is a personal yoga diary! It is a book for your thoughts and experiences, after a yoga class.

Do you have a favorite class or instructor? Take notes! Use it to determine your favorite style of yoga or enhance your practice. The Yoga Book is also perfect for teacher trainings and yoga workshops! Every page has an inspirational quote, space for the date, style of yoga, and instructor’s name. It also has a glossary of classic yogas. Enjoy!

“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.”
