From "patanjali" the first self-help author to our favorite contemporary teachers,
here's what's currently sitting on the clubhouse's bookshelf.
By Sharon Salzberg
"Beautifully simple, simply beautiful. The book that can guide and support a newcomer to meditation or enrich and refresh an experienced practitioner. While teaching readers how to become more fully present for themselves, this book makes Salzberg's calm presence accessible. Real Happiness is a jewel." - Martha Beck, columnist for O magazine and author of Finding Your Own North Star
The Yoga Sutras of Patañjali
By Edwin F. Bryant
"Bryant impressively succeeds in communicating the essentials of Yoga philosophy and practice to the thoughtful but nonspecialist general reader. His book will surely be welcomed by both serious scholars and responsible practitioners." - Gerald James Larson, Professor Emeritus, Indiana University, Bloomington, and University of California, Santa Barbara
Living Like You Mean It
By Ronald J. Frederick, Ph.D.
"Finally someone is helping us get closer to our emotions and who we are - instead of further away from our power. A moving and inspirational read for anyone in the challenging times we're all going through." - Melody L. Beattie, Author of the New York Times bestsellers Codependent No More, The Language of Letting Go, and Choices
The Most of Nora Ephron
By Nora Ephron
"Because sometimes, Nora Ephron is the best medicine." - Jonathan McKinna, Restorative Yoga Club
BY Brené Brown
"Brené Brown isn’t a spiritual guru, or someone who’s risen from the ashes to tell us how to live our lives. She’s a researcher. And Rising Strong isn’t some feel-good-get-over-it regimen; it’s more investigative reporting on the common denominators of people who whole-heartedly get back up and go another round after getting their asses handed to them in big and small ways." – Seira Wilson, Amazon.com
Living Your Yoga
By Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T.
"Yes! Living Your Yoga is what it's all about. Here is a clear and friendly book that will help anyone embody the wisdom of yoga by consciously bringing it into daily life. The exercises are fun. They can help you learn how to do yoga all the time - now and now and now - when you are in the yoga room and when you are not. Take this book to heart." - Erich Schiffman, author of Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness
BY Marie Kondo
"If the first book was merely an introduction to Kondo’s radical philosophy, known as the KonMari method, the new one goes deep into the details . . . the result is inescapable: a home, and a vision of life, that truly sparks joy." - Arielle Pardes, ArchitecturalDigest.com
By Dan Harris
"An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation that offers new insights as to how this ancient practice can help modern lives while avoiding the pitfall of cliché. This is a book that will help people, simply put." - Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
What We Say Matters
BY JUDITH HANSON LASATER, PH.D., P.T.
"What We Say Matters shows how speech can be a spiritual practice. A language of the heart has the power to create a world of connection, peace, and compassion in our own lives and in the whole human family." - John Kinyon, trainer and mediator, The Center for Nonviolent Communication
