(NOT me ~ source)
One of my goals this year is to read at least one book a month that is “out of the norm” for me. I’m hoping to work in a lot of non-fiction and motivational books with some historicals and contemporary fiction. While I’ll still be reviewing these on my book blog, I’m hoping to go into more detail about the ones that fit in here.

A Year of Living Your Yoga by P.T. Judith Hanson Lasater Ph.D.
A Year of Living Your Yoga is a collection of aphorisms by Judith Hanson Lasater, drawn from her teaching of yoga over the past three decades. Reflecting her knowledge of classic yoga philosophy, her own yoga practice and teaching, and her life experiences, these aphorisms are inspiring, humorous, and down-to-earth. There is one aphorism for each day of the year, along with a suggested practice. Some practices will take you onto your yoga mat and others will take you off of it. All will give you the opportunity to be present to yourself, and to life’s ups and downs—day by day, breath by breath, moment by moment.
