Abstract:

"In Writing Yoga, Bruce begins by sharing tips he has learned along the way: the benefits of keeping a practice journal, how to select just the right blank book, writing at different times of day, how often, and more. He has organized the book, by theme, into ten chapters, each with guided writing exercises: Opening Up; Moving Past Fear; Accepting Gifts; Paying Attention; Awakening to Connections; Trusting the Process; Just Sitting; Finding Your Balance; Learning to Breathe; Listening to Your Inner Voice. Part memoir, part writing guide, Bruce weaves excerpts from his own journal throughout. He reflects on practice as life: the excitement of walking into his first yoga class, apprehension about bending backwards, discomfort with body appearance, the yoga of family relationships, the exhilaration of coming into Headstand for the first time, deepening appreciation for his teachers, and waking up to the exquisite beauty of the world around him. Bruce guides you in stepping onto your mat and picking up your journal with curiosity and commitment. He shows how your journal can become a good friend, a confidant, a tool to deepen your experience of asana and pranayama, and a mindfulness practice in itself."--Publisher's description.
