As we’ve witnessed with the inspired #365yoga blogs, sometimes living your yoga takes a little writing it down. So we’re just beside ourselves on the mat with joy to present this giveaway for a yoga book that’s not only about a yoga journey, but about journaling the process along the way. In his new book, Writing Yoga: A Guide to Keeping a Practice Journal, Bruce Black takes us with him on a tour of exploring writing, yoga and life, and the intersections in between.
Read about Bruce’s personal experience with finding his authentic voice on and off the mat, and start your own journal practice with the exercises found at the close of each chapter. If you’re struggling to write, or simply want to be inspired to dig a little deeper, it’s the perfect kickstarter book for n00bs and vets alike.
WIN: A copy of Writing Yoga: A Guide to Keeping a Practice Journal by Bruce Black (courtesy of Rodmell Press).
TO ENTER: Well, we certainly won’t ask you to journal here, or dust off one of your old entries on past escapades and the search for meaning of life, from childhood, er you know, whenever. No, we’re going to do it Mad Libs style! Ready? Get ready to jot down some words.
What to do: Write down a word for each below.
- yoga pose you struggle with
- noun (body part)
- yoga pose you love
- friend’s name
- past tense verb
Then, fill in the appropriate blanks. And post the final the comments below!
Yoga is __1__ and makes me feel __2__. When I practice __3__ I really need to __4__ my ___5__ afterward. But doing __6__ with __7__ I feel __8__ and want to __9__ a __10__ __11__ right away. It’s the most __12__ feeling since I __13__ __14__.
