ynecdoche: (pronounced si-nek-duh-kee) a part of speech in which a part is used for the whole, or the whole for a part
As in: Author of Poser: my life in twenty-three yoga poses, Claire Dederer, describing her escape from the house to practice yoga: "I left them food as though it were a piece of me. Synecdoche: a part representing the whole. A sail representing a fleet. A crown representing a king. A chicken representing a mother."
I recently found this book while searching for books on yoga. I quite enjoyed it, as evidenced by my reading it in 2 days. Very poignant for a mother of babes just starting out in the world of yoga.
My 2014 goals include attending as many yoga classes as I can fit into my schedule. I just feel too damn good afterwards to not. While practicing yoga, I want to also learn more of its history and teachings.
Any yogic-friends have recommendations that aren't too incredibly heady? I'm thinking maybe this or this.
