In Yoga Mind, Suzan Colón, former Senior Editor of O, the Oprah Magazine and certified yoga teacher, distills yoga’s philosophy into a 30-day spiritual program. The word “yoga” usually conjures up images of athletic poses, but when a friend has an accident that leaves him paralyzed, Suzan learned the true meaning of yoga: union with life as it is, with hope for what we can do, and with our true selves.

When Suzan Colón was laid off from her dream job, she needed to cut her budget way back, and that meant home cooking. Her mother suggested looking in her Nana’s recipe folder, and Suzan soon realized she had more than just a collection of recipes; she’d found the key to her family’s survival through hard times. Cherries in Winter makes you want to cook and remember your family’s stories, and above all, makes you feel rich no matter what. Includes recipes.
