Yoga Mind and Body // AKA The Yoga Bible

Yoga Mind and Body

This book was sent to me to help me do a productivity challenge that I’ll be publishing on my lifestyle blog next week. I’m actually already a massive fan of yoga and completely fell in love with it after doing a 30 day challenge last January.

If I’m honest though, I’ve got a bit out of the rhythm with it and it’s something I’ve been meaning to go back to, but I’m lacking the time and motivation. I’m going to make it one of my resolutions next year to get back into yoga, starting with Yoga with Adriene’s 30 day challenge that I think is going to be on YouTube in January!

I used to do yoga on days I didn’t work out and the benefits were so much better than I had realised. I was more flexible, stronger and calmer. When you see people do yoga, it looks easy. But holding poses for so long can really get your heart rate up and get your muscles pumping.

This book is great for beginners and intermediate yogis. It focuses on 5 sections:

  • Exercise
  • Breathing
  • Relaxation
  • Diet
  • Positive Thinking
  • Meditation.

It breaks down each poses and goes into detail, but it’s not overwhelming to read.

My favourite part of the book is how it has a section about the vegetarian diet – which is great for me. I’m coming up to a year being a vegetarian and I’d be lying if I said I knew a lot about it. I know some benefits and concerns to not eating meat, but I’m looking forward to reading more and also getting some ideas of new foods to try. There is a recipe section and it has some amazing looking dishes, also a part about fasting.

I love how there is a whole section on positive thinking – it’s something I TRY to do but struggle with. I’m looking forward to reading it and getting back into the right mindset for the new year.

I feel like this book is really going to be my bible towards positivity, health and being the best Corinne I can be in 2016. I love the feel of it already and can’t wait to get my teeth truly into this book.

    This book looks brilliant, I love how it doesn’t just focus on the moves but has a lot of health and spiritual (ish) information too. One of the best books I read that really switched my mind over to positive thinking was ‘The Secret’. That was a mind-opener for sure!

    I loved Adriene’s previous 30 day yoga challenge. Every now and then I dip back into a random day and it really helps ground me and calm me down.
