“The mind is a friend or it is a foe.” – Baron Baptiste, Perfectly Imperfect
Planning your next yoga retreat or wellness event?
When you’re hosting a retreat or event, you want your attendees to get the most out of your instructions. So how can you help them further develop their practice after the retreat ends? Give them books! Not only do yoga and wellness books help illustrate and supplement your teachings, but they also help attendees deepen their practice long after your event is over.
Yoga books are also a great promotion tool to spread the word about your event. This type of health book provides information to newcomers and veterans alike on all kinds of yoga — whether it be Vinyasa, Iyengar, a combination of existing styles, or your own creation derived from a traditional method. It can help put new attendees at ease and encourage their participation.
