Reader's Review: empowering you life with yoga

i have at least 30 yoga books on my book shelf. if i had to take one of them to the proverbial desert island empowering your life would be my pick. its different in a very good way. its not just poses but poses in action in life. the stories of poses in action are very, very inspirations. bliss wood lives the life that she writes about. i just love this book and pick it up any time i need inspiration.

Reader's Review: Intimate, Practical, Down to Earth

This is a wonderful book. Bliss Wood's writing is at once intimate, down to earth, and practical. For example, throughout the book she has included quotes from both her own journal, and from those of friends, family, and students. Often those quotes really brought home the idea of integrating yoga into one's life, but not in some sterile theoretical way, but rather from the perspective of very real day to day living.

The book is written in two parts. The first part describes what empowered living is, while the second part describes the path to empowered living through Patanjali's eight limbed path of yoga. Again, what I especially liked was Bliss's fresh perspective on this eight limbed path - intimate, down to earth, and practical.

Throughout the book Bliss emphasizes looking within yourself to find what is right for you, rather than trying to live by some arbitrary standard. Also, at the end of each chapter she concludes with an asana, a real life story, a journaling exercise, mantras for daily living, and closing thoughts or questions that really bring the whole chapter home to one's daily life.

One other aspect of the book that I really liked was the emphasis on how one's physical yoga practice (through asanas) provides a guide into other aspects of yoga, and how important it is therefore, to pay attention to your body and listen to it during one's asana practice.

Bottom line is this is an easy to read, wonderful little book that really brings yoga concepts into one's daily life in both an intimate and practical way.
