In the digital age it becomes a blur at times remembering where you first connected with people. If you get an internal cue that you need to reach out to this person, though, you should listen. I recently connected with new author, Andrea Marcum, who has been teaching yoga for over 20 years. This Los Angeles, California author recently sent me her new book, Close To OM, which is a fun and approachable book for anyone who needs to stretch past where their feeling limited both in their practice and out in the world.
I’ve always felt the authenticity of someone who is a shoot-from-the-hip kind of soul and Marcum embodies this real and straightforward sensibility. The essence of the book leads you beyond the physical, mental and spiritual things that are keeping you from doing and being what you want. How empowering!
Who doesn’t want a step-by-step personal guide to living a life close to OM? I know my readers do. So check out her book, which you can buy HERE (along with many other online booksellers) and take a class from her HERE.
What really resonated with me is her encouragement to always cultivate a beginner’s mind, looking inside yourself for answers and then taking that off the mat into your day. I especially like her tips and ideas for creating an internal and external environment for positive change. As with most of the yoga teachers featured here on this blog, Andrea also shows you the wisdom in your “mistakes” (which we both know are just beautiful opportunities to learn).
Just between us: the “Stuckat list” is a super powerful tool for transformation. My favorite chapter, though, was all about creative space. Let me know what your favorite chapter was.
