Discover the ten ancient principles for more peace of mind in your daily life. Understand why you behave and think as you do, and how to make the changes that will transform your day-to-day experience.

With a down-to-earth approach and real-life examples from business and personal life, this book shows you how to make your mind stronger – and, ultimately, to make your life lighter and less stressful – by bringing yoga philosophy into your everyday.

This is no stuffy philosophical book. Rachel Bonkink drank too much, worked crazy hours, went for the money and always wanted more: yoga philosophy transformed her life, and it can transform yours too.

Rachel Bonkink takes us through the ten ancient principles for more peace of mind in everyday life. The real life examples help the down-to-earth feel of the book and they allow us to reflect on our own lives.
It’s a book that helps us get back to basics, it’s practical and can be easily applied to our personal and professional lives.
Personally I would love to keep this book and refer back to it as and when needed.


This book is like having your own personal guide take you by the hand and lead you to a simpler, kinder and richer way of life.
Rachel writes with beautiful clarity and positivity.
I read it in one sitting but I willl be going back to it often. Highly recommended!


People can have quite individual experiences within yoga and meditation which may bring up complex emotional responses that are difficult to understand. I enjoyed the personal and conversational writing style, making it seem more translatable to my everyday instead of separating ‘real’ life and that of what we ‘should’ be doing and feeling. In essence it makes you break down all the nonsense in your head in to easy to deal with chunks so that you can live in the present a little more, not sweat the small stuff and be kind to yourself and others. I’ve not read a book for a few years since having my little girl. I made time for this one.x


Having practiced yoga over many years in many locations, I had never understood, or had the time, to learn the principles behind what I was doing. This book very clearly, with lightness and humour, explains what is the spiritual practice behind Yoga
