Rating: 5*

 

Description: 

From the unforgettable teacher Jessamyn Stanley comes Every Body Yoga, a book that breaks all the stereotypes. It's a book of inspiration for beginners of all shapes and sizes: If Jessamyn could transcend these emotional and physical barriers, so can we. lt's a book for readers already doing yoga, looking to refresh their practice or find new ways to stay motivated.

 

lt's a how-to book: Here are easy-to-follow directions to 50 basic yoga poses and 10 sequences to practice at home, all photographed in full colour. lt's a book that challenges the larger issues of body acceptance and the meaning of beauty. Most of all, it's a book that changes the paradigm, showing us that yoga isn't about how one looks, but how one feels, with yoga sequences like "I Want to Energise My Spirit," "I Need to Release Fear," "I Want to Love Myself".

 

Jessamyn Stanley, a yogi who breaks all the stereotypes, has built a life as an internationally recognized yoga teacher and award-winning Instagram star by combining a deep understanding for yoga with a willingness to share her personal struggles in a way that touches everyone who comes to know her. Now she brings her body-positive, emotionally uplifting approach to yoga in a book that will help every reader discover the power of yoga and how to weave it seamlessly into his or her life.

 

Review:

Wow...I love this book! Jessamyn's attitude is inspirational.  Her body-positive approach to classes is fantastic and the way the book is written just outstanding. To write about her personal journey towards self love and body acceptance must have been such a difficult yet cathartic thing to do. To be at peace with her body now and to be such an inspiration to so many others as a yogi and such an influence via her Instagram account must bring her the happiness you see on her face. 

 

The yoga poses in the book are in full colour, and it is clearly demonstrated how to get into and out of each pose too. There is an emphasis on breathing, interesting chapters about the history of yoga, and lots of detailed information. This is probably the only yoga book you'll ever need! I read an ebook but have since got a printed copy for reference. 

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley and this is my unbiased review.

Think Happy, Be Happy: Art, Inspiration, Joy - Workman Publishing Company Beautifully illustrated and inspiring read. This was composed of about 400 pages worth of inspiring quotations and colorful art. It's compiled alongside several mood setting playlists (quite a few I'm using for myself), helpful tips and factoids which are coupled along with the phrases. It took me inside an hour to finish the read in one sitting, but I have a feeling that you could keep this as a collector's item and peruse the book when you need a pick-me-up.I'll admit I had a lingering smile on my face once I finished it. Definitely recommended.Overall score: 5/5Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher Workman Publishing.
