REVIEW: The Echo Killing by Christi Daugherty

I was sent The Echo Killing and A Beautiful Corpse by Harper Collins to celebrate the release of A Beautiful Corpse.

Books About Yoga!

Whenever I read about yoga I feel as though I’m combining my two favourite things. However, there are so many books about yoga, mindfulness and spirituality that getting started can be overwhelming.

Whether it’s practicing a few sun salutations each morning or a longer power yoga class, all yoga is great for the mind, body and spirit.
