Something I Never Do

Hello, Beautiful Blog Readers!

A bit of a departure today, as I’m doing something way outside my comfort zone; I’m the kind of person who’d rather drown than ask for help (yes, I have my own stuff to work on ;-)), but asking I am.

Please pre-order a copy of my next book, “Yoga’s Healing Power: Looking Inward for Change, Growth and Peace” today:

Yogas Healing Power-2I’m very excited to show you the cover, and to tell you the publication day is August 8th! This is all new to me, as my last book, “Open Randomly”, was self-published, and something I did largely because you incredible blog readers had been asking.

“Yoga’s Healing Power: Looking Inward for Change, Growth and Peace”, took me the better part of two years to write, during any chunks of time I had when my kids were at school, sleeping, at karate, playing guitar, or generally occupied. I went through the editorial process (and it’s intense having someone else look at the story of your life and suggest edits, let me tell you!), and was thankfully gifted with an amazing editor. My beloved friend, the incredible Dani Shapiro, wrote a gorgeous foreword. A few trusted friends became my first readers. Basically, I never knew how many people were involved in the birthing of a new book, and now I find I could use some more help! Apparently, it means a lot to the publisher if there are a significant number of pre-orders, and did I mention, the link is live? 

If you’re planning on buying the book, it would mean the world to me if you did it now. I really poured my heart, guts, and many tears into the book, and want to do whatever I can to help it into the world.

If you’re able to do that, I’d like to gift you with a free video download of a recent class I taught. See? Good for me AND good for you! Just email your purchase confirmation after you pre-order to and we’ll send you the free download link! And then I’ll meet you in your living room, or in your office, or at the beach, or wherever you want to take me!

Thank you so much for being on this adventure with me, and for being part of a conversation that continues to amaze me. You guys are wonderful, and you make me feel like it’s okay to ask for help, which is huge!

Much love,

Ally Hamilton

  1. For you, Ally, the moon :). Your daily insights have created countless discussions in our family. Will never be able to thank you enough.

    Can’t wait to read your next book. Namaste

  2. When I left Santa Monica 6 years ago, I never imagined that I would still be able to practice with you (and Josh!) on a regular basis. You used to say that I was part of a healing vortex of love (or something like that as a squished my mat between Adam and Josh), but you, my dear yoga teacher are the real vortex of love! I cannot wait to read your new book! Xoxo

    1. Katie!! We all miss and love you, and I’m so happy you’re still holding down the vortex of love from afar! It’s so good to hear from you. Any chance for an L.A. visit soon? Much, much love, and many thanks <3 XO

  3. Congratulations on your book! I love your online content and the authentic insight you provide. Thanks for sharing! Can’t wait to read it. 🙂
