    I m following the plan now after reading the book cover to cover yesterday and there is a lot to the concept that I really like Principally, the book focuses on this idea that you already have the perfect body, you may just need to uncover it It s sort of like Michelangelo when he was sculpting, inside the Carrera marble was the David, just waiting to be revealed Honestly, I am not in terrible shape now as I exercise 5 6 days a week, but this has reshaped how I see myself when I look in the m I m following the plan now after reading the book cover to cover yesterday and there is a lot to the concept that I really like Principally, the book focuses on this idea that you already have the perfect body, you may just need to uncover it It s sort of like Michelangelo when he was sculpting, inside the Carrera marble was the David, just waiting to be revealed Honestly, I am not in terrible shape now as I exercise 5 6 days a week, but this has reshaped how I see myself when I look in the mirror and I really appreciate that I think we women are told that we should focus so much on outward appearance, which is okay I suppose in some aspects, but this book says FIRST, care about taking care of your body and what it can do for you will follow I think that is a 5 star concept.The book shows a series of yoga poses to do and includes other options for including cardio Each day there is a new mind body concept to learn or practice I like this approach because its a little bit at a time, but you re building off of what you did the day before The food plan is why I m not giving this book 5 stars Food is very important, so its good that this is included, but its really not covered well enough in my opinion I m pretty much vegan, so I was attracted to the book having three separate food plans cleaner eating for omnivores, a vegetarian plan, and a vegan plan The book basically tells you to stop eating all forms of sugar except approved fruits, cut out all processed foods, avoid alcohol, avoid bread and yeast, avoid wheat, avoid caffeine, drink lots of water, and then eat from the list of approved foods for your eating plan It has about 20 meals with recipes for each food plan, but they aren t really teaching you how to eat properly or plan meals to have all your daily needs met I am guilty of eating a lot of processed foods and sugar and to be honest, I m not really sure how to handle this other than go cold turkey I don t cook much, so its like really Now what I don t have time to do a lot of cooking, which is how I got trapped in the processed food cycle to begin with The author herself talks about how shes not big into cooking either, so I guess I was looking for some sort of formula eat one fruit, two vegetables, two starches, one protein, and one fat at each meal, or something like that How many snacks should I really eat What do I do when I go out to eat Alas, I m going to Whole Foods today to restock my entire kitchen and hoping for the best, but this book could have done a better job with that aspect

    Let me say that I mean absolutely no disrespect to the author with my less than satisfactory rating of this book I love that Yogalosophy is such a body positive book that is all about loving the body you have before having the body you want.But, and yes there is a but, I find it hard to whole heartedly believe this book with its surface body love when most of the weight loss can be pointed at extreme and expensive diet changes I have not done extensive research but when one is already living a Let me say that I mean absolutely no disrespect to the author with my less than satisfactory rating of this book I love that Yogalosophy is such a body positive book that is all about loving the body you have before having the body you want.But, and yes there is a but, I find it hard to whole heartedly believe this book with its surface body love when most of the weight loss can be pointed at extreme and expensive diet changes I have not done extensive research but when one is already living an active life style the diet changes are astronomical and borderline ridiculous Maybe it is just me, I am a nineteen year old who already exercises and eats well but is looking to tone up, this book is not written for me The target audience is amature woman who wants to make very big lifestyle changes, I can appreciate that fact but I just can t get on board with body positivity that almost requires starvation

    I wanted to read through the entire book first before embarking on the 28 day process I really liked what I read, so I am excited to begin The book features a yoga routine with poses of the day throughout the four weeks or sometimes a special routine to fit with the day s theme , journal exercises, breathing and meditation practice, music playlists, cardio options, and three meal plans including one that is vegan hooray As someone who only recently began yoga instruction after a several I wanted to read through the entire book first before embarking on the 28 day process I really liked what I read, so I am excited to begin The book features a yoga routine with poses of the day throughout the four weeks or sometimes a special routine to fit with the day s theme , journal exercises, breathing and meditation practice, music playlists, cardio options, and three meal plans including one that is vegan hooray As someone who only recently began yoga instruction after a several year hiatus, I can vouch that the poses are truly beginner friendly, with only a couple ofchallenging poses offered My plan is to begin the 28 days in October, once I am done with my current workout routine I will provide a full review throughout for those who are interested in trying yoga and committing to a month of guided practice and an overhaul of how we think and move throughout our day

    In September I started going to Yoga classes This is something I have wanted to start for a couple years now but never got around to it, but this year I had an opportunity and I am so happy that I did, I enjoy it so much I was looking up books and came across Yogalosophy on my book shelf at home and began to read it It is a 28 day challenge, each day gives you a page to a page and a half about your body and how we should be treating it Then it gives you yoga moves of the day and one healthy In September I started going to Yoga classes This is something I have wanted to start for a couple years now but never got around to it, but this year I had an opportunity and I am so happy that I did, I enjoy it so much I was looking up books and came across Yogalosophy on my book shelf at home and began to read it It is a 28 day challenge, each day gives you a page to a page and a half about your body and how we should be treating it Then it gives you yoga moves of the day and one healthy recipe The book also gives you options for eating plans during the 28 days I read the book in 2 days, I couldn t put it down It is so inspiring, real and true One of my favorite quotes from the book is, The time when you are able to have the willpower to stick with something and the strength to be able to follow through and carry it out is a small window, indeed use your energy wisely, and be full in your expression The author is a women named Mandy Ingber, she started her career off as a fitness instructor instructing spinning classes at her local gym All her life she had felt like an outsider until she was asked to lead a class and from then on connecting with people and helping them achieve their goals became her motive She then began to teach yoga and has never looked back She is very inspirational with her writing, she explains that in yoga you compete with yourself and once i finished reading the book I had a new perspective on what I am capable of Some examples of the chapters are, setting short terms goals These are goals were you can see the finish line, this makes it muchreasonable and motivational Think your way thin, it is all about how you see yourself She explains that everyone is already perfect, you are unique and you should learn to embrace it If you happen to want to change something about yourself do it, there is nothing stopping you but always be positive with yourself She also talks about how breathing is the most important thing in yoga and the importance of meditation When you meditate you are suppose to visualize, you can visualize and memory, your favorite place or where ever makes you happy I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys yoga or would like to start It is a very relaxing read and I would even like do the yoga moves for 28 days

    I don t know about this being the ultimate mind body makeover, especially in 28 days, but this is an easy to read and understand book for someone interested in yoga and who doesn t know where to start I began my yoga journey with something similar over 30 years ago Yoga Twenty eight Day Exercise Plan What I really liked about this book is that Ms Ingber combines asana with journaling, meditation, and three different food plans She stresses the importance of expressing gratitude, too On t I don t know about this being the ultimate mind body makeover, especially in 28 days, but this is an easy to read and understand book for someone interested in yoga and who doesn t know where to start I began my yoga journey with something similar over 30 years ago Yoga Twenty eight Day Exercise Plan What I really liked about this book is that Ms Ingber combines asana with journaling, meditation, and three different food plans She stresses the importance of expressing gratitude, too On the physical side, she also emphasizes the importance of cardio I like that it s a fairly comprehensive plan to reboot one s life, and in a very healthy way.This is the kind of book I would give to a friend who s interested in yoga, but doesn t want to venture to a yoga class I would also give that person a really good beginner yoga DVD, too, so they could follow along and understand the importance of alignment during asana.Although doing asana along with a book is not my preferred way of practicing yoga, I do think this book is great for someone who is new to yoga and wants to incorporatethan the physical practice of it.Although there is some Hollywood name dropping, it s not obnoxious I get it she s trying to sell books More than likely, her publisher or editor told her to include it After all, if she weren t Jennifer Aniston s yoga teacher, I don t know that she would have been on my yoga radar Overall, Ms Ingber comes across as someone you see as a friend fun, supportive, caring and passionate about life

    I received this book for free from Goodreads giveaway I liked learning yoga from the book better than the yoga DVD I bought It isdescriptive and is visual, as well I loved the author s anecdotes I really enjoy many of the yoga moves I didn t like the lack of a glossary of terms for those of us yoga beginners Perhaps, I need a book titled Yoga for Idiots The good news is most of it was easy to understand with the exception of a few words that were repeatedthan once I didn t ca I received this book for free from Goodreads giveaway I liked learning yoga from the book better than the yoga DVD I bought It isdescriptive and is visual, as well I loved the author s anecdotes I really enjoy many of the yoga moves I didn t like the lack of a glossary of terms for those of us yoga beginners Perhaps, I need a book titled Yoga for Idiots The good news is most of it was easy to understand with the exception of a few words that were repeatedthan once I didn t care for the menu options, not because I am unwilling to eat healthy or try new foods I just can t afford the time to cook new recipes and especially the money I also neededthan 30 days because I had to learn the moves and motivate myself to do the hard moves.I will continue to use the book as a reference, and I have been teaching my four year old son yoga Thanks for giving me a copy of this wonderful book The pictures were very helpful
