The idea for our own Book Club was born during a class where one of our students was really struggling with the idea of being gentle with themselves. Misty asked her if she had ever heard of the work of Dr. Kristen Neff, who studies Self Compassion, and that little conversation ignited a spark within Misty. . .
Many of our clients are avid readers looking for ways to enhance the "wellness" in their lives. Much like Misty, so many of us enjoy disappearing into the pages of inspirational materials that enrich our lives.
Starting in September, EYW will be hosting a monthly book club. Members will be given one month to read the book (members are responsible for obtaining a copy of the book selection whether by purchasing the book themselves or borrowing from their local library). The focus of the club will be books from the Wellness, Self-Help, Yoga Philosophy and Personal Development genres.
OH! As an added bonus, due to Misty's overflowing bookshelves at home, EYW now has a lending library at the studio where clients can borrow books. If clients have books from the Wellness, Self-Help, Yoga Philosophy and Personal Development genres that are in gentle used condition, they are welcome to add to our shelves.

The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what and how we’re supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgment, criticism and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection.
Dr. Brené Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, is the leading authority on the power of vulnerability, and has inspired thousands through her top-selling books Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, and The Gifts of Imperfection, her wildly popular TEDx talks, and a PBS special. Based on seven years of her ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: Our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we’re all in this together.
Dr. Brown writes, “We need our lives back. It’s time to reclaim the gifts of imperfection—the courage to be real, the compassion we need to love ourselves and others, and the connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life. These are the gifts that bring love, laughter, gratitude, empathy and joy into our lives.”
