Read TJ’s book… the Yin Nuance, The Tao of practicing and teaching Yin Yoga.
by TJ Maher

yin nuanceTo all my teachers and all beings. To live as mindfully and joyfully as I am able while sharing what I have learned is the best way that I can imagine to repay the many many teachings I have had in this blessed life.

May all benefit that come from my endeavours and this book be given to all beings, to release them from their suffering and guide them to realise their enlightenment.

“Like the ancient Tao Te Ching, written almost 2,500 years ago, the format of this book is accessible, easy to digest and a joy to read.” – Bernie Clark, author The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga.

“After reading this gem, I found myself leading my students in and out of ‘spacesuits’; exploring inner landscapes and playing with gravity. Prepare to step in and zip up for this nuance filled trip”  – Jessica Wolf, owner Wild Wolf’s Yoga Studio, Bristol UK.

Pick up from the studio only. We will post by request.
