At the end of March, I started yoga teacher training. It's a lot more involved than you might think! We're going to be in class for about 230 hours over 9 weekends. We have homework and (of course) yoga classes to attend outside of our weekends. I've started a lot of books about yoga but haven't finished any this month!

I am reading one book that I hope will help me be smarter and more efficient (therefore satisfying book #17) - The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You by Jessica Turner. You may be familiar with Jessica if you ever participated in her Project Life Tuesdays over at The Mom Creative website. This book is about maximizing the time you have and taking care of yourself.

The second book this month is Happy Healthy Sexy: Ayruveda Wisdom for the Modern Woman by Katie Silcox and satisfies book #5 (a book published this year). Katie was our teacher for the second yoga teacher training weekend. She led a workshop all about connecting to your Inner Mama and doing what's best for your soul. I didn't know what to expect going into that weekend, but it was AMAZING. She taught bits and pieces from the book, so I bought it during the weekend. There are tips about diet, yoga, mindfulness, and the ancient science of Ayurveda. Cool stuff, people.

What are you reading lately? Once I finish the Fringe Hours book and learn how to use my time more efficiently, I'll need more book recommendations!!  :)

  1. Sounds like 2 good books to help focus on goals, Emily! I can't remember if I told you about "The Magician's Lie" by Greer Macallister, I really liked it. I've been slow getting through "The Bookseller" by Cynthia Swanson, but only because I haven't had time to read, it's also been enjoyable. :)

    1. I'm not sure if you mentioned that one, Elise. I'll check it out.

  2. They both sound like great books :) I just finished up reading the Twilight Series books (all 4 books :) Very enjoyable and love the suttle differences from the book vs the movie. Next up is Under The Dome by Stephen King :)

    1. OOh! I can't wait to Under the Dome to come back on!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment - I love reading all of them!
