Check out one of these books to boost your yoga practice and give yourself a daily dose of wellness both on and off the mat.
Read to learn, and learn to grow.
I absolutely adore reading. Give me a high-vibe book and a quiet afternoon, and you have one calm and centered mama. Reading about yoga in particular has always inspired and enlightened me. Whether learning about a pose, sequence or style that’s new to me, or deepening my knowledge about yoga philosophy, I soak every ounce of it in.
Check out the quick list of my top three yoga books with a modern-day self-care twist to raise your vibration.
- 108 Yoga and Self-Care Practices for Busy Mamas by Julie M. Gentile I wrote this book at the height of my busy life as a full-time working mom of two young children, yoga teacher and professional editor and writer. The practices on these pages are real-life practices I use to help me navigate the chaos of daily life, and they can help you, too. The focus on your inner work is fun and interactive, and it will inspire you to stand up for your self-care in a world that is constantly demanding more from you.
- Aim True: Love Your Body, Eat Without Fear, Nourish Your Spirit, Discover True Balance! by Kathryn Budig A yoga book, cookbook and wellness guide all in one, this book is an excellent resource that will help you thrive on and off your mat.
- Strala Yoga by Tara Stiles This inspirational and engaging book guides you to live and lead with more grace and ease so that you can more easily flow through life.
