    1. I'm really interested in holistic health, and eastern medicine. I was browsing books specifically on the topic of ayurvedic health and came across this one by Bri. Maya Tiwari and had to read it after reading the description of the book on the back cover.I have type 1 diabetes and hashimoto's hypothyroidism, so I am always on the look out for ways to be the healthy I possibly can.Bri. Maya was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her early twenties, she went through all the treatments that were hard [...]

    2. I enjoyed the very specific Ayurvedic advice Tiwari offers, along with examples of her suggestions actually helping her personal clients. However, most of us are not living in a cabin in the woods with no electricity, with every day free to shop for organic produce, grind spices, and make every meal we eat from scratch (to be eaten, of course, squating on our natural wood floors). If you're looking to learn traditional Ayurvedic ways, this book will suit you well. I took away some valuable piece [...]

    3. Just made Ghee for the first time 2 days ago! This book is a celebration of a slow, sensuous life and a fantastic guide to include as much of healing breath, food or sounds traditions that work for you.

    4. A truly wonderful book about so many health journeys, what it takes, the role ayurveda can play. Great anecdotes, interesting, well-written.

    5. The best book about health and Ayurveda (spiritual side). I’m reading non-fiction books all the time (especially about health) and I have to say it was a mind-changer. To live in Sadhana is possible and to use Maya Tiwari’s practices is easy as well. Pick one or twon’t rush, use during 8 weeks - and believe me you’ll FEEL results, in your body and soul. I know many people gonna tell: “Oh poor me I have no time for dis or for dat”OK. Why you suddenly have allll time in the world when [...]

    6. This book contained so much information! I know I'll be using it as a reference for the rest of my life. I'm not sure when I will begin to incorporate some of these sadhanas into my life, but I know I could benefit from many of them.

    7. Such a great book! It is a simple introduction into Ayurveda and Ayurvedic reading. A must read for anyone who is interested in ayurveda, yoga, healthy living, eating, and spirituality. Seriously-- this is a book I will return to again and again.

    8. A great primer on sound and breath healing as well as food sadhanas. I'm excited to try some of the recipes for the seasons and doshas.

    9. Excellent book for understanding a woman's body and Ayurvedic Practice. The stories of women who healed very compelling.

    10. This book is amazing for all women, but is especially helpful if you struggle with any irregularities with your menstrual cycle. The practices presented are very powerful, they work.
