I love, love, love this book. I would describe it as a yoga devotional. Each day there is 2 yoga poses and a scripture to meditate on. I did it everyday for 40 days and it was very encouraging to my faith. I definitely think that you need to read the section in both the front and the warm up sequence in the back before you get started. It took me about 10-15 minutes to get through the warm up, the two poses and the meditation every day.

Whitney Simpson's unique approach to communion with God draws on lectio divina, prayer, yoga, aromatherapy, and journaling.

This book provide such a lovely and helpful resource. From Whitney's personal story, to the daily invitation to Lectio Divina, yoga, prayer, and reflection, this book of meditations is just right to start off the new year. I'm grateful.

What I love most about this book is its accessibility. Whitney does a marvelous job of dropping you in where she began: a personal crisis that leads to transformation. All of us have been there, and this book is the perfect guide to finding your way through whole-body restoration. I love the explanations, daily work, poses, lectio divina, words, and oils. It’s a useful, bite-size way to incorporate healing and wholeness into each day. Thank you, Whitney!
