From the co-founder of the yoga method that launched yoga into the mega-popular mind-body practice that it is today (the Jivamukti method), here is a simple guide to developing your own individualized daily spiritual practice for greater peace and well-being.
This powerful little book from legendary yoga teacher Sharon Gannon shows readers how to design their very own daily spiritual practice, incorporating yoga poses and practices, meditation, blessings, and other spiritual practices, to begin one's day in a positive and life-affirming place. While many people experience yoga only in yoga studios, Gannon explains that it is highly beneficial to have a private spiritual practice that can be done at home. Replete with how-to instructions on the ten simple yoga poses Gannon recommends readers do for health and flexibility, as well as guidance on meditation, blessings, and awareness exercises that can be added to the mix, this book will help readers infuse their day with greater focus, compassion, and joyfulness.
This eclectic book from Gannon (Simple Recipes for Joy), dancer, musician, and cofounder of the Jivamukti Yoga Method, presents a spiritually uplifting 10-week program of practices inspired by Egyptian hieroglyphs. After beginning with a short chapter on mental exercises such as giving blessings, Gannon introduces the core physical practices of her program: meditation, breathing (pranayama), and dancing (based on aerobics) that are intended to help elevate one's spiritual awareness. The title refers to a 10-minute series of yoga-based spinal movements. Gannon's "mystery and magic" approach particularly her attempts to draw links between Indian yoga and ancient Egyptian spiritual practices, without evidence beyond her intuition may not appeal to some readers, but much of the information will be useful for the general seeker, including easy-to-follow exercises and key wisdom about the spiritual path (such as reduction of the ego, kindness, and the importance of daily practice). Black-and-white photos of the author illustrate various poses, and a glossary of Sanskrit terms is included for comprehension and further study. Gannon's simple advice will be welcome to all spiritual seekers, but some of her expert poses shouldn't be attempted by beginners without a yoga teacher's guidance. Those already exposed to the spirituality of yoga (or Gannon's work in particular) will be most likely to find this uneven book helpful.
