I really like that this book is broken up into two page tidbits. It’s perfect for quick and thoughtful reading right before or after a yoga session, and then taking 5 minutes to meditate on the lesson or truth that is presented.
The lessons include things like calming the mind, harnessing our emotions, identifying the energies in our body, practicing non-attachment to material things, controlling our habits, showing compassion and patience to others and ourselves, and of course focusing on the breath.
There were very few lessons that had any religious overtones. Most of the lessons are general philosophy and universal truths that apply to any person. There are a few mentions of “karma”, but I didn’t see any major deities mentioned.
I think I will use this book to enhance my yoga practice and help me to meditate and focus as I do yoga. The layout and design of the pages is really beautiful, with lovely mandala designs on each page.
