Praise for The Path of Joyful Living


“The rising popularity of yoga in our Western culture has, unfortunately, been focused on the physical benefits of the longstanding traditions of movements and positions. While yoga can bring improvements in physical strength and flexibility, we have lost the true essence of the practice, which is to initiate a conversation and facilitate growth of the connections among body, mind, and spirit. 

"In The Path of Joyful Living, Dani McGuire presents a brave and transparent testimony of the internal dialogue that is an inherent part of being human. Through the lens of yoga’s traditions and practices, she gives the reader a roadmap for honest, thought-provoking self-dialogue. Whether used as part of a yoga practice or as a guide for meditation, The Path of Joyful Living is a provocative yet gentle mirror that will stimulate, inspire, and push readers to the next level of their personal best.”

– Angela LaSalle, MD, DABFM, ABOIM, medical director integrative medicine, Parkview Health System, Fort Wayne

“In this succinct and bold book, Dani McGuire is raw, revealing, and passionate. She draws from many wells of truth as she languages the 'I am love' story in a personal and transformative way. This book is sure to inspire both seasoned mindful meditators and those who are new to the way of self-compassion and joyful living.”  

– Dave Johnson, PhD, RN, LMFT, mental health and mindfulness educator, professor of nursing at University of Saint Francis, Fort Wayne

“Dani McGuire’s approach strikes a 'human' balance between a most beautiful and articulate expression of ancient teachings and her background as an entrepreneur and mother of two who has a wicked sense of humor. She is pure authenticity, and that shines in her writing, teaching, and presence.”

– David Romanelli, health and wellness innovator, author of Life Lessons from the Oldest and Wisest
