Here’s what people are saying about Yoga Mind’s 30-day program of spiritual tools:
“In Yoga Mind, Suzan Colón offers not just a series of poses but a way to use yoga spiritually, as a philosophy as well as a physical discipline.” —Publishers Weekly
“Reading this beautiful offering of a book and working with the practices will change your life. A balm for anyone who is struggling to live better and more truly.” —Jessica Berger Gross, author of enLIGHTened and Estranged
“Suzan Colón’s Yoga Mind is a much-needed collection of mental and physical exercises anyone can do—and I mean anyone, with any body, any limitations of time, health, or mobility. It’s an inspiring introduction for beginners and a terrific enhancement for longtime practitioners. These thirty lessons left me feeling grounded, renewed, and grateful for Colón’s warm, practical, and refreshingly skeptical guidance. I felt like I’d been on a short daily yoga retreat with a good friend. I’ll be giving this book to friends and family for a long time.” —Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch
“Most books on yoga explain how to achieve peace through teaching about body postures. Although Yoga Mind includes physical techniques, this book does much more. Through her engaging, accessible style, Suzan Colón explains the principles and attitudes that lead to true inner transformation by sharing practices that anyone can do—no matter what age you are or what shape your body is in. I highly recommend this book.” —James Baraz, author of Awakening Joy and co-founder of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, Woodacre, CA
“What a refreshing and empowering book. Colón gives readers permission to make peace with ourselves and our bodies through this practice. Thank you for this inspiring read.” —Dianne Bondy, Yoga Educator, Creator of the Yoga for All Movement
“Yoga Mind takes us on a deep and delightful journey on how yoga can benefit our day-today lives. There is practical wisdom on each page, delivered with such wit that I found myself laughing out loud. The format of the book is ingenious: a personal story of dealing with tragedy, mixed with specific lesson plans for spiritual growth, and one of the most concise and clear summaries of the yogic path that you will find anywhere.” —Swami Asokananda, President, Integral Yoga Institute of New York City
“In Yoga Mind, longtime yoga teacher Suzan Colón gives us a set of daily ‘spiritual tools’ designed to change our lives. Whether you have a yoga practice or are just starting one, her plan elevates the power of physical movement to the next plane. In down-to-earth, empathetic prose, Colón asks us to ponder how to express positive human values such as kindness, compassion, honesty, and mindful communication and illuminates them with stories from her own life. It might seem that these qualities are in short supply today, but Colón teaches us that they’re waiting inside all of us, ready to be coaxed out. Step by step, and with great generosity, she shows us how.” —Barbara O’Dair, Editor in Chief, Prevention
“Yoga Mind gets to the heart of yoga by exploring practical and accessible ways anyone can bring yoga into their life, even if they can’t do a single pose. A wonderful resource that exposes these powerful tools and shows us how to implement them in order to bring more peace and ease into our everyday life.” —Jivana Heyman, founder, Accessible Yoga
“The yoga book the world needs most right now.” —Jo Sgammato, New York Times bestselling author
