Head’s up yogis going to YJ LIVE! this weekend in New York: When you’re not getting your yoga on with the best teachers in the country, watching mind-blowing demonstrations, or hanging with your yogi pals in the Marketplace, make sure to hit up the bookshop. This year’s shop is sponsored by Brooklyn indie bookseller Greenlight Bookstore and promises incredible finds plus meet-and-greats with some amazing teachers who just happen to have awesome new books out! (Tip: the Marketplace is free and open to the public!)
Here’s the schedule:
Sadie Nardini will be signing copies of The 21-Day Yoga Body: A Metabolic Makeover and Life-Styling Manual to Get You Fit, Fierce, and Fabulous in Just 3 Weeks. The book (which formed the basis of YJ’s Fit & Fabulous program earlier this year) promises to speed up metabolism, build lean muscle, and burn fat— all while building your emotional strength. Bonus: The meal plan allows for wine!
When: Saturday, April 26th; 10:45-11:15 a.m
Yogini goddess Shiva Rea will be signing copies of her first book, Tending the Heart Fire: Living in Flow with the Pulse of Life. Drawing upon the ancient wisdom of yoga, Ayurveda and Tantra, Rea teaches us how to heal imbalances by reconnecting to the rhythms of the body and the natural world.
When: Saturday April 26; 3-3:25 p.m.
Alanna Kaivalya will be signing copies of her just-released book, Sacred Sound: Discovering the Myth + Meaning of Mantra + Kirtan. A celebrated musician and expert in yoga mythology, this new book blends Alanna’s vast knowledge and deep deep love for these most sacred elements of yoga practice.
