Judith Hanson Lasater has been teaching an annual yoga retreat at Feathered Pipe Ranch, in Helena, Montana, for twenty-eight years. When Lasater learned that one of her students was collecting her thoughts—which she called “Judith’s aphorisms”—Lasater decided to collect them in this book. Featuring one thought for each day of the year, along with a suggested practice, these brief, powerful insights reflect the author’s knowledge of classic yoga philosophy and years of experience. Humorous, inspiring, and surprisingly down-to-earth, they guide seekers both on and off the yoga mat. These aphorisms address love, asana, fear, trust, expectations, pranayama, suffering, laughter, presence, the Yoga Sutra, and much more. They emphasize the experience of being present to one’s self and to life’s ups and downs—day by day, breath by breath, moment by moment. A Year of Living Your Yoga is a gentle invitation to readers to know themselves on a deeper level.
News & Reviews

"The daily practices that Judith offers sing of her honesty, compassion, and wisdom. She knows just where the pitfalls are and how to wake us up to the teacher within, to live each moment from our authentic source. Like a koan, these often humorous and surprising sayings can help reveal and shape a life fresh relationship: to yoga, to ourselves, and to the world." —Jiko Linda Ruth Cutts, Abbess, Green Gulch Farm, San Francisco Zen Center

"Judith is eloquent and can expound upon the lofty idealism of yoga better than almost anyone. But her forte is truly in her commitment to finding ways to actualize its teachings into a seamless experience in which life and yoga are not separate. This book is meant to be used by all who wish to bring yoga to life!" —Sharon Gannon, coauthor of Jivamukti Yoga

"One thread, one sutra at a time, Judith Hanson Lasater weaves together mindfulness, daily life, meditation, yoga, the sacred, and the profane. This essential book—a luminous tapestry—enables life and yoga to become one again." —Francois Raoult, MA, director of Open Sky Yoga Center, Rochester, New York

"Judith's words of wisdom have inspired me ever since I took my first workshop with her in the early 1970s. Everytime we meet, whether at a yoga conference or for tea, I am uplifted by her even outlook on things. I can't wait to experience a year guided by her daily measure of insight into the workings of the human mind and body." —Beryl Bender Birch, author of Power Yoga

"This book will inspire you to live your yoga—all day, every day. With wisdom and clarity, Judith offers 365 opportunities to embrace the ordinary as sacred. Who knew that fresh sheets, driving the speed limit, growing old, and juicy apples could be the path to the awakened life!" —Cyndi Lee, author of Yoga Body, Buddha Mind
