Yoga Book Club

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, the natural world and 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. Contact Christy if you'd like to join; all Yoga Room students are welcome!

Our Current Book Selection

Resilient: How to Grow an Unshakable Core of Calm, Strength, and Happiness

by Rick Hanson

resilient

True resilience is much more than enduring terrible conditions. We need resilience every day to raise a family, work at a job, cope with stress, deal with health problems, navigate issues with others, heal from old pain, and simply keep on going.

With his trademark blend of neuroscience, mindfulness, and positive psychology, New York Times bestselling author Dr. Rick Hanson shows you how to develop twelve vital inner strengths hardwired into your own nervous system. Then no matter what life throws at you, you’ll be able to feel less stressed, pursue opportunities with confidence, and stay calm and centered in the face of adversity.

This practical guide is full of concrete suggestions, experiential practices, personal examples, and insights into the brain. It includes effective ways to interact with others and to repair and deepen important relationships.

Warm, encouraging, and down-to-earth, Dr. Hanson’s step-by-step approach is grounded in the science of positive neuroplasticity. He explains how to overcome the brain’s negativity bias, release painful thoughts and feelings, and replace them with self-compassion, self-worth, joy, and inner peace.

We will discuss this book on Wednesday, June 2, 2021, 6pm. RSVP for location (outside in-person).

RSVP to Christy by June 1.
