    1. I keep this lovely book by my bed as a reminder that my yoga practice is about more than being able to a headstand. Which I can’t do and, frankly, don’t care about doing. So much wisdom inside its cover.

    2. This book wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it was actually really nice, like a 'day' calendar where there's a thought, insight and even an 'action' for every day of the year. No images of people doing asanas or anything, but some really nice insights and thoughts.

    3. Yogis. Non-yogis. Everyone should have this book in their home to go back to throughout life! Wonderful perspectives and affirmations!

    4. Basically, it’s a yoga devotional book. Every day of the year, Judith Hanson Lasater gives a short, maybe four-sentence meditation for you to ponder during your yoga practice or throughout your day. Since I’m trying to read as many books as I can for my “book fairy” library, I couldn’t take a year to complete it just now, sadly. I would recommend that you do so. Each thought stands well and fully on its own and in a short amount of time will give you so much to ponder. I kind of can’ [...]

    5. This is a gem that you can refer to on a daily basis. I am a Judith Lasater fan. In July I attended her Restorative Poses teacher training in San Francisco. She is a remarkable yoga teacher and a wonderful, intuitive, wise person. This book has a thought for each day of the year.Here is the entry for February 12th:Whatever you do, do it with an open heartVING YOUR YOGA: Maybe you agreed to do something but now you are wishing you hadn’t. If you do choose to follow through in the end, do so wit [...]

    6. A good book to read a day at a time throughout the year if you are looking for a very short morning read. Personally, I am finding Mark Nepo/s The Book of Awakening: Having the Life You Want by Being Present to the Life You Have a deeper, but longer daily read.

    7. A wonderful collection of daily reminders to breathe, relax, and appreciate the important things in life. Yoga practitioners will enjoy keeping this one on their nightstands and teachers will enjoy sharing the words of wisdom with their students in class. Lasater truly knows what it means to 'live' yoga.

    8. The book provides a yoga-related thought or focus for each day of the year which although a lovely idea, I found there were just too many days where I read the entry but was too busy or preoccupied to consciously apply it throughout the day.

    9. I'm not quite finished with this yet (as it has a daily devotional), but I am really enjoying it. At least once a day I try to meditate and often I will reflect back on what I read that morning to get me started. Its very uplifting and I really enjoy where its taken me.

    10. This is a great daily inspiration book concerning yoga. Already, just using it for the last week, it helped set a meditative tone to my day and give me something to focus on either in my practice or my daily life. I'm looking forward to the rest of the year.

    11. I just got this book today and read half already even though its supposed to take a year. It is not so much a yoga book as a life book. to make each day better by changing our attitude and our response to external factors.

    12. A A great find in Blossoms Bookstore in Bangalore. A great thing to place on your altar; you have a reflection for every single day to ponder.

    13. Wonderful quips to keep you going throughout the day/s. One that I will come back to again, I'm sure.

    14. Read long ago and picked back up again about two years ago to read again. It's very good. Insightful. Delight to read.

    15. So far, so awesome. Nice, succinct daily meditations for both on and off the mat. In its second annual rotation
