Why Do I Love this Book?

This book written by one of my real life role/”roll” models, Jill Miller, is so reader friendly with big pictures and easy instructions to self massage your muscles.  This book has helped me to more deeply explore my connection to my body and empowered me to help erase any pains I have, all on my own.

Ayurveda The Science of Self-Healing by Dr. Vasant Lad

Why Do I Love this Book?

Dr. Vasant Lad is a smart dude, and this short reference guide covers all the aspects of basic Ayurvedic understanding in easy to read charts and lists. So if you are looking to understand your dosha, the 6 taste and your digestive system, this is a good book. If you are curious about this mode of healing, and don’t know what all those things are, you might be interested in my upcoming class of Ayurvedic habits, Health Bloom, a ten week course starting March 1st. Not sure if it’s for you? You can attend my free talk “Easeful Living: Useful Habits for Thriving this Winter” on February 15th in Portland, OR.
