Book Recommendation: 365 YOGA: Daily Meditations by Julie Rappaport

Julie Rappaport's collection of 365 meditations is a gem.  It was given to me as a gift from a yoga student several years ago.  There is the consistent thread of true yogic wisdom throughout, whether a selection is from the Upanishads, by Martin Luther King Jr. or Mother Theresa.  The eight page glossary of yoga is helpful as well.  The author contributes her own wisdom throughout the text, relaying her experience of play, duality, sensitivity, gravity and the infinite.  For me, Rappaport's voice is in line with the other teachers I connect with most:  Vanda Scaravelli, Sandra Sabatini, Angela Farmer and Victor Van Kooten.

365 YOGA: Daily Meditations was published in 2004 Tarcher/Penguin Books.  There are copies available on Amazon from $1 to $14 plus shipping.
