- I'll reach for this text again and again!Review by April
I love the book and I am bias as Norman has been my friend and teacher for many years. Having listened to his words in classes, it seems very precious to now have them at my fingertips. As a teacher myself, I reach for Norman’s book to share with my students. I read from it to them while they are in Yin postures and it is such delicious stuff.
Part autobiography, part Yin yoga instruction manual, part reference guide, part thought-provoking world view forums, Norman bears his soul for us to see. With beautiful alliterations and wonderful photographs and drawings, this will be a text I will continue to reach for in my life journey.
Thank you Norman!

Bernie Clark, author of The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga and Your Body, Your Yoga
‘Highly recommended.... Brightening Our Inner Skies has inspired me to remember the sweet heart at the center of yoga practice, and the importance that the consistent practice of self-awareness has for each of us as individuals and for the world around us.’
