It’s been requested that I share a list of books that I read from in class. It has come to pass that I usually read a passage from a book at the beginning of class and weave that theme throughout the class. It started a few years ago when I was reading a book and each chapter was SO good, I just HAD to share everything I was reading in my classes. Now it’s a regular thing. I tried a couple of times to intentionally not read and changeup my class and the way I themed, but every time I did that, my regulars asked: “What’s up? Where are the readings?” Apparently, my readings are an integral part of why students show up for my classes.
Part of my daily (except on weekends) routine, is to read something inspirational. I learned about this in my first training with Kevan Gale and Fluid Yoga; daily inspirational reading, along with journaling, meditation and a few other practices, support us to create contentment and intentionality in our lives. I have been practicing this ever since. If this sounds overwhelming- reading something Monday to Friday- if it helps, many of these books have short chapters. I don’t create significant amounts of time in my life to read. I prefer short and sweet, except during vacation periods. In cases where the chapters are long, I read half a chapter per day, or 10-pages per day (whichever is less ;-)). The daily inspirational reading really does help. Like meditation, it’s a little bit of soul connection and reminder, in the middle of my busy life.
Without further ado, here’s a list of what I’ve read to my classes! I’ll update the list when I’ve got new books to add:
Carry On, Warrior by Glennon Doyle
Love, Warrior by Glennon Doyle
The Subtle Art of Not Giving a Fuck by Mark Manson
The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer
Hardwiring Happiness by Rick Hanson
The Buddha Walks into a Bar
Broken Open by Elizabeth Lesser
I’m currently reading: Taking the Leap by Pema Chodron
A few other books I completed before I started reading in my classes and recommend are:
Happiness by Mathieu Ricard
Fierce Medicine by Ana Forest
Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain by Sharon Begley
The Place That Scare You by Pema Chodron
Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss
The Joy of Living by Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche (actually, this book was so transformative for me that the beginning of my practice, I think I’ll re-read it and bring it to class, so if you come to my classes, you can hold off on this one for now if you’d like!)
Just over two weeks away! This workshop is for ALL levels, whether you don’t know how to get into crow or are trying to press handstand from crow! And in between and beyond (I will include any arm balance or transition you are working on! With that said, this workshop does NOT include handstands). It’s a chance to get nerdy about arm balances, ask questions, slow the process down, see how others get into and out of arm balances, let go and have some FUN!!!!
