If you think that you have to escape to a cave in the Himalayas to find the enlightenment that yoga promises, think again. In Living Your Yoga, Judith Lasater stretches the meaning of yoga beyond its familiar poses and breathing techniques to include the events of daily life—all of them—as practice. Using the time-honored wisdom of the Yoga Sutra and the Bhagavad Gita to steer the course, the author serves up off-the-mat practices to guide you in deepening your relationships with yourself, your family and friends, and the world around you. Inspiring and practical, she blends her heartfelt knowledge of an ancient tradition with her life experiences as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, friend, and yoga practitioner and teacher. The result is a new yoga that beckons you to find the spiritual in everyday life.

From the Inside Flap:

"In this easy-to-read, inspiring book, Judith Lasater generously shares delightfully funny and poignant stories from her very American life, to show how we all can use the simple problems of daily living as a springboard for spiritual practice. Reading Living Your Yoga is like moving in with Lasater and her family for awhile. I enjoyed my visit immensely. She reminds us that yoga practice is primarily about mindfulness and is a twenty-four-hour-a-day activity. Take this book to bed, every night for a couple of months. Open it anywhere. Read a few pages. Reflect. Relax. Breathe. Smile. And have a good night1s sleep." --Beryl Bender Birch, author of Power Yoga

"Judith Lasater's new book is a down-to-earth discussion of how we can use the age-old wisdom of yoga in order to reconnect with the sacred in everyday life." --Georg Feuerstein, Ph.D., Founder-Director of the Yoga Research and Education Center and author of The Yoga Tradition

"Yes! Living Your Yoga is what it1s all about. Here is a clear and friendly book that will help anyone embody the wisdom of yoga by consciously bringing it into daily life. The exercises are fun. They can help you learn how to do yoga all the time--now and now and now--when you are in the yoga room and when you are not. Take this book to heart." --Erich Schiffmann, author of Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving into Stillness

"In her heartfelt and gently humorous manner, Judith Lasater shares her profound understanding of ancient yoga teachings, and translates the Yoga Sutra and Bhagavad Gita into a simple prescription for daily living. Whether you're a yoga student, yoga teacher, or yoga scholar, you'll be informed and inspired by Living Your Yoga." --Kathryn Arnold, editor in chief of Yoga Journal

"In this delightful and practical book on yoga philosophy, Judith Lasater presents timeless wisdom with clarity and insight. She is a well-seasoned yogini, who writes from personal experience on how to use the events of daily life as yoga poses for the mind and the heart." --Patricia Walden, featured in Yoga Journal's Yoga Practice for Beginners

"Judith Lasater explains how her practice has helped her to sort through life's tangles, clarify her values, and renew her commitment to her ideals. She bares her soul so that we can see our own." --Suza Francina, author of The New Yoga for People Over 50
