Weekly Intention:
Peace in Your Heart


“Be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and stars. In the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul…”
– Max Ehrmann

How… can you ‘be gentle with yourself,’ today?

  • Do things slowly…
  • Pretend there is a four year old child living inside you; then pretend it’s you, because it is you. 🙂
    *Ask yourself, “How would I talk to a four year old child, when things go wrong?”
    *Then, talk to yourself, as if you were a four year old child, when things go wrong.
  • Breathe deeply…
  • Take time for yourself…
  • Stretch…
  • Listen with a clear mind and an open heart…
  • Look at the world with soft eyes…
    “Not like some dragon you got to slay…”
  • Practice yoga…slowly.
  • Take breaks…
  • Do it tomorrow, if ya can. 🙂
  • Enjoy!

Ask yourself, “How can I ‘be gentle with myself,’ today?
Then, live from the question and see what unfolds…

About The Yoga Book

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 posture? Sketch it! Do you have a favorite class or instructor? Take notes! Do you have a creative idea? Write it down! 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.”
