Since 2008 our Yoga Book Club has met every other month to discuss inspirational books on a wide range of holistic topics including yoga philosophy, spiritual growth, psychology & more. Members take turns hosting in their homes - or even poolside when the weather is nice! Our discussions are made even more enjoyable by the healthy vegan dishes everyone brings to share for our dinner potlucks. Email Christy if you’d like to join - all Yoga Room students are welcome!

Altered Traits by D. Goleman & R. Davidson
More than forty years ago, two friends and collaborators at Harvard, Daniel Goleman and Richard Davidson were unusual in arguing for the benefits of meditation. Now, as mindfulness and other brands of meditation become ever more popular, these two bestselling authors sweep away the misconceptions around these practices and show how smart practice can change our personal traits and even our genome for the better.
Drawing on cutting-edge research, Goleman and Davidson expertly reveal what we can learn from a one-of-a-kind data pool that includes world-class meditators. They share remarkable findings that show how meditation can cultivate qualities such as selflessness, equanimity, love and compassion, and redesign our neural circuitry.
