  1. I would love to win the YogaBody book. I have been practicing yoga since 1992. I may teach it in the future. I log in to Yoga Basics site almost everyday. Excellent articles. Keep up the good work.

  2. I’d LOVE to have that book…coincidentally I was coveting it at the book store just yesterday, honestly!
    I am a newly certified (200 hour) teacher and try to absorb all the information I can since every student is so unique and individual…

  3. I would love to win this book also because i love yoga…i practice everday and i plabn to tech it when my studio gets remodeled…
    _with love_

  4. I just started doing yoga this year, and I love how strong it is making me. I am reading all I can about the practice to learn how to do the moves correctly and to add them into my day whenever I can. I still have so much to learn (especially about the breathing), so this book would be a great help to me.


  5. i would absolutely love to win a yoga book. I have been wanting to take classes but i just had a baby and cant afford them. I have one book and i love it, it helps me to relax and take a breather even if its just for ten minutes a day.

  6. I would love to add this to my collection of Yoga books. I’ve been teaching for over a year now and I love new ways to teach and share yoga to my students. Sounds great!

  7. new to yoga and referred by a friend. Would love to have a book to help me get started. Looking to learn yoga for not only health reasons but also for inner balance. Hope I win!!!

  8. I am somewhat new to yoga, I’ve done a little in the past, but lately I have a passion to learn more and continue as a life long discipline. I’d love to win this book. :)

  9. I’d very much enjoy this book Timothy. You were my very first yoga instructor (at GVAC). I’m still at at thanks to you. Yoga is now a very important part of my daily life. Namaste.

  10. How wonderful that you would give away this book to a lucky few – I am now greatly interested in seeing the anatomical detail in Ms. Lasater’s book. Thank you!

  11. I’d like to win this book to enhance my yoga practice and knowledge. Thank you.

  12. Yoga has been the best thing for me physically and mentally and the world is a better place because of it!

  13. I have read and reread (complete with highlights and post it notes) Living Your Yoga by Ms. Lasater. It would be a wonderful birthday present to win this book. I am sure that the wisdom and inspiration written between the pages will not only be of great support to those of us who read it, but it will further solidify her place as one the great Yoga teachers of our time.

  14. I would like to win this yoga book to expand my knowledge and practice of yoga. Namaste.

  15. I am a full-time yoga teacher. When I began teaching I set a goal for myself to attend at least one workshop every year to continue my yoga education. My classes and private lessons have dropped off quite a bit because of the bad economy. Between that and buying a house last month, I will no be able to attend any workshops this year. Therefore I’m trying to get my education in alternative ways. This book would be a great help in that. Much thanks for your consideration.

  16. I have read Judith’s book “living your yoga” twice already! I also have her “A Year of Living Your Yoga” and have drawn on it’s daily wisdom for themes for classes and daily living. :-) Would love to have anything inspired by Judith…namaste to all…

  17. The only familiarity with yoga I have is what I learned from a PBS broadcast series in Cleveland during the early 70s. It was my introduction to being more aware of my body. I have yet to take yoga in a formal class, but am confounded that I can no longer pur my foot behind my head. Where did all the time go?! At least I have a picture of myself doing it 40 years ago. Blessings and good luck to all of us.

  18. I have been practicing yoga for 4 1/2 years and love yoga so much I became a yoga instructor about 1 1/2 years ago. This would be a wonderful book to add to my collection and share with my students.

  19. I have taken classes with Judith & read her books & would love to be part of her newest teachings.

  20. I have used yoga as theraphy for scoliosis for years. I chose this as my form of treatment when I was told I needed a 360 surgery placing rods in my back. I was in tremendous pain, and almost went with the orthopedic surgeons suggestions. I am an old yogini from the 60’s when I was introduced to Swami Satchidinacha after his famous Woodstock presentation, and tour in the states at a little yoga class in Texas where I believe he was associated with a cardiologist at the time. Well, when I was told I needed surgery to correct the curvature in my spine, and reduce the chronic pain I instinctively knew to use my yoga experiences to start my journey again in finding the way to take back some of the power I could use to heal using yoga. I was especially mindful of the resting postures, was using restorative yoga ,and had heard of Judith’s work, so after reading some of her books, and then applying her knowledge in the field I began to have hope again. I always dream of meeting her, and having the honor of attending a workshop, or class she teaches, but until that happens I continue to use the methods she shares in her books, and spread that knowledge to others in need. I hope to gain more from her new book. She is a talented woman that I look forward to meeting someday in the future. Thank-you, Dee Knight

  21. Judith Lasater is someone I hope to meet one day and learn from. I would welcome her book to add to my “toolbox” of techniques to offer those I teach as well as incorporate into my personal practice. The gift would not go to waste. Iyengar Yoga has been a part of my practice for over 10 years. Restorative is a style I teach regularly in tandem w/ yoga therapy and incorporate into my healing for hormonal, mood and digestive imbalances. I welcome that opp’y to share her gift unconditionally. Shanti. Felicia

  22. I am just starting out with my practice of yoga and need to learn as much as I can. I find that the more I learn, the more I want to learn. Yoga has already started to change my body and my outlook on life. I would welcome the addition of Judith Lasater’s book to my library.

    Thx, marihaf

  23. Judith Lasater rocks! I interviewed her a few years ago, and she was kind, informative, patient, and had great wisdom to share.

    I noticed that the NYPL and BPL do not have this book, and it is a bit pricey, so I do hope I win the book!

    I am also fascinated by how many people (Including me) have made comments as to why they want to win the book–even though this is a random drawing…

    Om shanthi.

  24. I’ve been practicing for 8 years, but I really only been practicing for about 1 year……In AZ you don’t have to be ‘trained’ or certified to be a Yoga Instructor. Anyone can open a Yoga studio, for 7 of the 8 years I’ve gone to someone that just read a book but doesn’t understand the interwork nor the poses really (I’ve found out the hard way)…..I have now found 2 EXCELLENT Instructors that have taught me so much- I would just love to learn more.

  25. I have been practicing yoga off and on for 30 years and would love to add this book to my collection

  26. Judith Lasater’s work has been so influential in my personal practice and my teaching. I would love to add this title to my library.

  27. Help! I’ve fallen off the yoga mat and need help getting back on! Perhaps this book will help me reestablish my yoga practice. I miss my yoga body!

  28. I’m an avid believer that Yoga Therapy will become as esteemed, if not more revered a practice as chiropractic services. I was introduced to the beauty of yoga through a college PE course and have since returned to my practice through a cancer care center. I receive many gifts through my practice and am striving to become a practitioner. My first attempt at an anatomy course proved a miss; but, determination will assist my second. This book might just be the gateway I’m looking for.

  29. As a practitioner since 1963 I know yoga is a valuable practice.
    I intend to take a teachers training course in the next 12 months.
    Thanks for this great resource.

  30. I am currently reading Judith Hanson Lasater’s book Living Your Yoga and would love the chance to win her new book, as I am wanting to teach Therapeutic Yoga.

  31. I was fortunate enough to be a part of a training Timothy gave this weekend at Community Yoga. He had many wonderful books, Judith Lasater’s Body book being one of them. I feel this book will be a wonderful addition to my library. Thank you

  32. Yoga changed my life! I now teach basic beginning yoga to help people see that anyone can do it. I love this site and would cherish the book.

  33. As a physician in california, and as a 10 year practitioner in yoga, I am interested in alternative therapies for my patients’ physical and emotional problems. I know there are currently a number of well-respected academic institutions studying yoga as therapy. I am excited to read her book in the future. Thank you, Yoga Basics, for making me aware of this manual :)

  34. i love yoga…i hope i win this book because i want to give it to one special person

  35. I’ve only been practicing yoga for about six months. Enjoying reading and learning about it!

  36. I”™d love a copy of the book especially after learning about it at the anatomy presentation at CY! Thanks!

  37. I’m a yogini who trys to bring life to the mat! Although working fulltime, mom of 2 young children and hopefully future yoga teacher – I would love to be able to add this to my library. Namaste.

  38. Hi, Yes I would love to win Judith Lasater book Yogabody, this book will help me to deepen more knowledge , as I love studying anatomy , physical theropy. I’m a yoga practitioner over a period of years helped many people with different ailments etc, and hope to help many more in the future
    This gives me a great pleasure to teach Yoga and this most rewarding to be able to help anyone in anyway.

  39. I would love to win this book. I started practicing yoga for 3 months now. It was recommended to me by my personal trainer (who teaches yoga/pilates) as a healing source. It has definitely helped my bad knee and ankle. I constantly look at different yoga sources to heal different parts of my body while I train.
    If I win this book, I will be surely sharing it with others (yogis and potential yogis) at the gym to bring awareness to how yoga can help and keep you in shape.
    Hope I win!

  40. I am fairly new to yoga and I am also a new mother. Yoga has helped me find a peace of mind and calm that I never even knew was possible! And it has also helped me to start to get my body back into shape. I can practice right in my own living room, which is nice when you have a three month old! I really want this book because I would love to learn everything I can about yoga. Although I am new at it, I plan to continue doing it for a very long time! Its very relaxing!
