My book ‘Yoga Journey – a Contemporary Guide to a Timeless Tradition’ launches worldwide in both paperback and ebook on 31st January and I’m beyond excited to share it with you!
I was inspired to write it after a conversation with a friend who had recently discovered yoga and was considering doing her teacher training to deepen her knowledge and experience. She asked me whether I could recommend any books that might help her to better understand yoga beyond the mat. My first response was ‘yes, of course!’ Thinking about it later that day, I realised that although there are lots of great books out there about different aspects of yoga, I didn’t know of any that would quite fit the bill. I was looking for something that would bridge the gap between studio classes and a teacher training curriculum. Something that explored both the foundational yoga practices and philosophies as well as more advanced concepts, making them accessible and relevant to everyday modern life; something for anyone who wants a better understanding of yoga as a whole; something to get under the skin of what happens on the mat.
I couldn’t find what I was looking for, so I decided to write it myself.
Join me for the launch!
