Embracing the yoga lifestyle has more to do with how you live your life than how successfully you can pull off yoga poses, or how good you look in your yoga outfit. In this heartfelt and inspiring guide, master Ashtanga yoga teacher Kino MacGregor offers a personal and spiritual challenge, distilling some of the tradition's essential teachings into thirty key lessons to help you truly live the yogi's life. Each day's Yogi Assignment focuses on a key yoga concept--such as stillness, vulnerability, truthfulness and authenticity, intention, and selfless service, to name just a few. MacGregor explains and expounds on the concept, using examples from yoga philosophy and her own life experience and twenty years of practice, and then offers practices and poses to support the concept of the day. Each day is actually a journey in itself that helps you to confront your emotional, physical, and mental limitations, and inspires hope and real change in your life.
Beautifully illustrated with over 250 color photos, this book will motivate experienced yoga practitioners, as well as people who are new to the practice. MacGregor is a fierce, loving guide, enouraging you to look deeply within, to find your wellspring of inner strength and courage, and to embrace your daily practice.
