WHO IS THIS FOR?
Yogis and Non-yogis, basically anyone and everyone who is interested in reading (or re-reading) books relevant to the practice of yoga off the mat.
Also great for those who struggle to find the motivation to read. It's been proven that having a deadline and an encouraging community might be the push you need!
Taking action is the first step.
Other than that there are no rules. We all read at our own pace. And you do not have to finish reading to attend the monthly meets.
To inculcate the practice of reading, we encourage that you schedule a time to read, for example half and hour before bed. Also have a journal and pen on hand to write down your thoughts and/or anything that inspires you.
