You Are Here - A review, competition and reader offer

  Sometimes I'm sent the the oddest things to review (e-cigarettes?) but most of the time I'm sent really useful and inspiring products to share with my readers. I spotted You Are Here on Twitter and asked Emma to send me a copy of it so I could review it on the blog. I love it!

You Are Here is a travel journal taking you on a voyage of internal discovery and its fun! Mindfulness can be seen as serious and boring but oh no, its nothing like that and its great to see that Emma has bought this through in her book.

You can tell that Emma enjoyed creating this book and it comes through with its design and her sense of humour in her writing. Sit.Breathe.Love supports Village by Village and the Clean Hands Saves Lives project which helps to provide vital sanitation and health education for villages in Ghana. 10% of the profits from this book goes to these projects and you can also donate here


The first 100 readers of TYG to buy this book have been offered 20% off - enter YOGAGEEK20 at checkout. Buy Here


Also one lucky reader will win a copy of their own journal – just share this post on Twitter and make sure you @theyogageek so I know you've done it and the lucky winner will be chosen on Monday 28th April and I will notify you on Twitter. Once you've sent me your postal address I will send the journal out to you.
