I love this book -- one day at a time, exploring themes that START on the mat, & very quickly expand outward to include your whole life. YUM.

I use this book as both a yoga practicioner and a teacher. The wisdom in the passages applies to life in general, not just yoga. It's a great way to remind me to slow down and appreciate life and a way to ease my students back after Savasana.
