YOGA SYNTHESIS BOOK CLUB, hosted by Jennifer Coan

The Yoga Synthesis Book Club is hosted by Jennifer Coan, a yoga instructor at our Studio since 2005. Our book club is for anyone interested in reading or learning more about yoga. All are welcome to come and share their thoughts.

The next discussion night is Monday, November 16, at 7:30 pm.

Our next selection for the Yoga Synthesis Book Group is “The Breathing Book” by Donna Farhi. This book is not about pranayama and typical yogic breathing practices. It covers in depth the anatomy of the breath, how to bring your breath back to a natural baby’s breath from deep in the belly and the effect that the breath has on your overall health. Throughout the book, Ms. Farhi provides easy-to-follow experiential “inquiries” to help you explore and deepen your own breath. During our meeting, we will explore some of these basic inquiries.

Ms Farhi has a background in movement therapy and yoga. Her style of writing is clear and informative. The Breathing Book is available at the studio. Raji and Rose kindly donate the studio space for the book club meeting, and Jennifer volunteers to host the meeting and to share her love of books.

The Yoga Synthesis Book Group is a Karma Yoga event, the yoga of selfless service. There is a suggested donation of $10. All donations for this group go to Shelter Our Sisters, a non-profit Bergen County organization providing assistance for women and children since 1976.
