Writer and editor Bruce Black began studying yoga five years ago, after his knees could no longer stand the stress of running. Shortly after taking his first class, he started keeping a journal to explore his experiences on the mat.

Just in time for me to read before I begin taking my upcoming yoga and tai chi classes* came a copy of Writing Yoga: A Guide to Keeping a Practice Journal by Bruce Black. I first "met" Bruce through his wonderful blog, Wordswimmer, and have gotten to know him better over the past several years thanks to the CYBILS Awards. Bruce is a kind, generous, thoughtful person, as any one who has read his posts and his in-depth interviews can see, and he has written a book that reflects those qualities.

When I was doing my yoga teacher training we had to keep a journal of our practice, how we felt, how it related to our lives.

Over the years this unbelievably helpful practice has fallen by the wayside.

But after reading this book I've been yoga journalling again. Part memoir, part writer's guide, part yoga fanbook, Bruce Black uses his own story to help you realise what happens on your mat can reflect what is happening in your life and uses a series of brilliant prompts to kick start your writin

If you like the mindfulness meditation books of Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn (Wherever You Go There You Are, Full Catastrophe Living), and if you have an interest in writing, yoga, or both, then I highly suggest Bruce Black's combination memoir and how-to guide, Writing Yoga. Through gentle advice, suggestions, and examples from his own life, Black advocates bringing the same caring attentiveness fostered through the discipline of yoga into keeping a journal. He describes how observing one's yoga practice ...more

I’m finding that over the years, yoga has changed for me. In my youth, I practiced yoga for the exercise. My drive was competitive and I would often force myself to do poses that I probably wasn’t ready to do. After a hiatus of many years, I’m now looking at yoga in a new light. Now, it’s more quiet and personal, like a continuous path of self-discovery.

I think, Writing Yoga reflects and compliments my new journey. In this book, the author shares his own journey to yoga and what he has learned

If you have ever done any journaling at all this book will not offer new insights. What makes this book an interesting read however is Black's own journal. Throughout he gives excerts from his own journal. It is his personal growth through yoga and his journal that makes this book worth reading. Perhaps after reading this book my own journal will become a little more elegant...perhaps not. : )

Bruce Black has found a way to combine both his passions, yoga and writing, into one. Those passions are then used to explore life. How glorious.

He asks a lot of great questions! I have now read this book and will go back and use the questions to journal. An awesome and thoughtful read.
