Since 2008 our Yoga Book Club has met every other month to discuss inspirational books on a wide range of holistic topics including yoga philosophy, spiritual growth, psychology & more. Members take turns hosting in their homes - or even poolside when the weather is nice! Our discussions are made even more enjoyable by the healthy vegan dishes everyone brings to share for our dinner potlucks. Email Christy if you’d like to join - all Yoga Room students are welcome!

Judgment Detox by Gabrielle Bernstein
Bernstein (The Universe Has Your Back) outlines a six-step plan for readers to overcome "separation from love" (her personal definition of judgment) in this uplifting guide.
Bernstein's six main recommendations are simple but difficult in practice: witness your judgment without judgment, honor your wounds, put love on the altar by surrendering, see yourself as you truly are, cut the cords that beget revenge, and bring your shadows to light through forgiveness of self. These force readers to think in new ways about their emotions and habits. Bernstein also provides practical advice on emotional freedom techniques (tapping the body to access "energy meridian points" similar to acupuncture), meditation, prayer, and Kundalini yoga practices.
