The Solemnity and Celebration of the Body Temple and Soul

Dashama Konah Gordon's newest venture in writing, JOURNEY TO JOYFUL, is one of those reading experiences that is felt internally as well as delighting the eye and brain. One of the reasons her book on the practice of Pranashama Yoga is so poignant is her sharing of her own life journey - an unwanted child of substance abuse parents separated from two of her siblings at age seven, finding her way back into life through the practice of yoga.
I absolutely love this book. What is best about this book is that I found out about it after doing some of Dashama's Tutorials on youtube. I love the way she explains things detailed enough to where you don't get confused and you can feel your body molding the way it should in the pose as she is giving directions. After loving some of her videos so much, I decided to see if she had any books and I'm really glad that she didn't do one that is generic and has poses shown through pictures. Her stor ...more
Whenever a teacher claims to be presenting their own 'brand' of yoga, my bullshit metre chimes a warning. This book is no exception. All of the techniques and philosophy offered in this book can be found in any teacher training manual the world over. The author didn't 'invent' this stuff, there's nothing original about her ideas or methods. The books is poorly written, horribly edited and incredibly tedious.
If you’re thinking about beginning Yoga, this is the book for you. This book explains the basic purpose of yoga, which is to increase an individual’s spirituality. The book encourages positive thinking. The author shows through examples from her own life how being positive can change your life. The book encourages a healthy life style that we all could use. This book will encourage you to find true joy in life, and I recommend it to anyone who is looking for a more all-round healthy life.
