A Year in Hot Yoga: Daily Meditations for On and Off the Mat
"This book pleasantly bridges the gap between the obvious and the esoteric. I like that the meditations require a little bit of thought, but you don't wonder, 'What's he talking about?' like so many meditation books. Simply meditating on the meditations is enough." -- 42Yogis
Presenting a year's worth of daily meditations inspired by the challenges and graces of a hot yoga practice, this guide highlights the connections between life as experienced both on and off the mat. Each inspirational meditation draws from the principles of the hot yoga system, offering jewels of wisdom and perspective that can be easily applied to everyday life.
In his tender and often hilarious style, Scott Ginsberg understands that the hot room is where we confront our weaknesses as well as celebrate our strengths. The wisdom we learn in those exchanges, from our own bodies, our instructors, and our classmates, is never finished evolving and deepening. The more we practice, the more we learn a new mindset of openness and acceptance, one that we strive to incorporate into our daily lives outside of the studio.
Scott Ginsberg has written 30 books and an award-winning blog, released seven albums on his own record label, created a suite of creativity-based software apps, and delivered hundreds of presentations and corporate training programs worldwide. He is also a daily practitioner and work-study volunteer at Bikram Yoga Studio in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
