Aug 13, G. My favorite parts were when she incorporated yoga into specific stories of her life. This book is about her fascinating spiritual journey. This isn’t a book of exercise routines, although it does show yoga poses. She talks about the origins of yoga, pilgrimages, breath, Ayurveda and compassion to name a few.
Living Yoga: Creating a Life Practice
Ultimately, I did come away from Living Yoga feeling inspired about yoga and about life, but I also felt a reminder of how easily the ego can “co-opt” spiritual ideas and experiences; that desire to Be Somebody that someone like Turlington has been driven by and benefited from most of her life can be parlayed into turlingtob new Image, a new Somebody in the form of a Yogi, a Spiritual Seeker, a Do-Gooder.

This book is part memoir, part yoga practice and theory with good information on the history of the practice. The book isn’t instructional or technical at all, it is more a highly personal meditation on yoga, Ayurveda, and the fusion of the spirit with the physical in general.
