Judith Hanson Lasater has been teaching an annual yoga retreat at Feathered Pipe Ranch, in Helena, Montana, for twenty-eight years. When Lasater learned that one of her students was collecting her thoughts—which she called "Judith’s aphorisms"—Lasater decided to collect them in this book. Featuring one thought for each day of the year, along with a suggested practice, these brief, powerful insights reflect the author’s knowledge of classic yoga philosophy and years of experience. Humorous, inspiring, and surprisingly down-to-earth, they guide seekers both on and off the yoga mat. These aphorisms address love, asana, fear, trust, expectations, pranayama, suffering, laughter, presence, the Yoga Sutra, and much more. They emphasize the experience of being present to one’s self and to life’s ups and downs—day by day, breath by breath, moment by moment. A Year of Living Your Yoga is a gentle invitation to readers to know themselves on a deeper level.

A yoga book to support everybody. Yapana, an ancient Sanskrit word meaning "The support and extension of life." Leeann Carey's THE YAPANA WAY presents a unique and insightful refuge from the profound imbalances of the frenzied 21st century lifestyle. Those who consider yoga simply an exercise limit the transformative powers of a complete practice. When one pauses to transcend competition with the self, and others, we embrace the true essence and wisdom of yoga - the development of presence and self-acceptance throughout all aspects of life. Yapana Restorative Yoga Therapy introduces prop-supported BEING and STILL poses that extend and deepen the nature of each experience. Strategic support and extension creates the opportunity to inquire, calm, and accept your practice in a knowledgeable and loving way. Yapana practice dispels the myth that yoga props infer weakness or a lack of skill. Supported poses help you meet your body/mind where you are in any given moment. Rather than impose arbitrary rules of destination and time, you will discover the path to living a more mindful and wholehearted life. This comprehensive illustrated guide to Yapana practice is designed for those who desire to cultivate their "inner" teacher, inspire a home practice, or bring their yoga into a new level of understanding and self awareness.
