Yoga continues to be a growth industry with an estimated thirty million people in North America now practicing either privately or in most cases with a class. Though the yoga market is fractured by the great number of competing schools and philosophies, what they all have in common is the ending of the session with a period of relaxation coupled with inspiring readings.

Honoring many spiritual traditions, it's the perfect teaching tool or gift for yoga teachers and practitioners, or for anyone seeking uplifting messages for any occasion.
