Reading List


I love to read, but often don't make time for interesting books during the week while I'm working or on the weekends when I'm relaxing.

I love taking time on holiday to lie in the sun (with sunscreen, of course), and catch up on all the books I've bought throughout the year.

This month I'm diving into a few good ones; here's why.

  1. Gut - I've been wanting to read this for a while now. The gut is so much more than where we digest our food. This book delves deep into how improving gut health can greatly impact overall health, and why you should get to know your own gut!
  2. The Law of Attraction - this book and it's authors keep popping up for me in various places, so I thought I'd go direct to the source. I've been working with the principles behind this recently (without having read the book), with great results, so I wanted to know more.
  3. Yoni Shakti - written by an incredible teacher, this is a book of wisdom for any woman working in yoga, but also for any woman. Uma Dinsmore-Tuli looks at all stages of women's life/development and how those stages can be best supported with different styles of yoga/meditation/breathing, etc.
  4. Present over Perfect - I was given this book by a friend, who, like me, struggles with perfectionism. I used to think that perfectionism was a blessing, but the more I understand it, I recognize how limiting it is and how the pressure we put on ourselves to constantly be perfect is highly detrimental. I can't wait to dive into this one.


What books are on your reading list? Read anything recently that made a big impact? I'd love to hear about it. Let me know in the comments, or on Instagram (@laurenewilkie) or Facebook (Lauren Wilkie Yoga and Pilates).
