I basically devoured this book in 3 sittings. The author, Rebecca Pacheco, does a wonderful job at bringing her authentic voice and understandings of yoga based on her own experiences as a student, teacher, and most importantly practitioner of all things yoga. I loved that it cut to the chase. It was a refreshingly simple and insightful read. There is so much information presented throughout the pages, from ancient times to current times.
The aspect of the book I enjoyed the most was her breaking things down, chakra by chakra. Her explanation of the colors, meanings, and postures associated with healing each chakra just made sense and stuck with me. I don’t mean to sound repetitive, but it was informative and packed a punch.
Her way of disseminating this information just spoke to and stuck with me, as simple as that. I have read about the chakras in the past, but they never fully integrated into my own catalog of knowledge the way I was able to integrate my learnings from this read. The teachings I have implemented the most have to do with color association. If I am feeling a certain chakra is out of balance, I wear the color associated with that chakra. This is just such a practical tidbit of advice, and so easy to implement. I feel more mindful every morning when I am getting dressed. Who knew your wardrobe had anything to do with yoga?!
This is an excellent book to keep handy and refer to if you want pictures of how to perform specific postures. I am so, so glad to have this book and would highly recommend it to any person with even a remote interest in yoga. Rebecca tells it like it is, and is a true teacher of yoga.
