I have always loved books, but my reading has always been directed at fiction. At least until I started my yoga journey. It took me a while before I took a step towards the open world of “yoga books”, because I have no idea which books I should choose. When I did my teacher training, I received a list of books to read. I didn’t read all of them because it was a lot for me – reading in English, especially non-fiction books, wasn’t easy – but it opened the door. Now I almost only read this type of book and don’t really have time to read fiction (but it is such a pleasure to read a little fiction in my mother tongue! I appreciate it more.)
I started to write book reviews in my newsletter to maybe give some reading ideas to my students and I thought it would be nice to share it widely. So here we go, let’s have a little blog, where people could share their opinions as well.
Let’s talk about one book I use often during my classes, especially during my retreat. I love this book, it’s very beautiful and poetic, and it often inspires me. I was introduced to it years ago when I was on a mentoring course, and it found its way back to me recently.
The book is entitled “Prayers of Honoring”, written by Pixie Lighthorse. I love nature and since I started practicing yoga I am becoming more sensitive to everything that connects me to nature. And this is exactly what this book is about. But that’s only a small part of it. More so, it’s an invitation to see things differently; it opens a door of our mind and our heart to inner wisdom through gratitude. You will find in these texts (or prayers, or poems whatever you prefer to call them) a lot of inspiration or maybe just some beauty.
Please share what you think of this book, I would love to hear from you.
