Practice is a common term used for participating in a yoga class. The idea of practicing means to accept that yoga will never be perfect. Each practice is a process of improving from the prior class or can be used as a practice in self compassion by not comparing to the previous session. The ultimate goal of practice is to calm the mind. When I first began yoga, it was all about the physical aspects of class. After my numerous trips to India, I learned that with practice, the mind-body-spirit connection can be a source of great peace and happiness.
For these reasons, I selected “Practice” as the title of my new book. Plus, one word titles are cool and easy to remember.
The paperback is live on Amazon and the E-Book will be on Amazon, iTunes and Nook by the end of this week. It took a lot of time and energy, but I was finally able to release the paperback on Friday. I spent most of that day plastering stuff on social media and sending emails to friends and family. Around 5:00, I decided to check the sales success, so I opened my Amazon browser and typed “Practice” into the search field. Well, Amazon decided I needed another chance to practice patience.
This search has over 200,000 results and over 150 pages. My book does not appear on any of the first 150 pages. It was time for plan B, so instead of searching “All” of Amazon, I clicked on “Books” entered “Practice” and waited for the results. There are over 90,000 results and 101 pages. I scrolled through each page and my book does not show up on any of the 101 pages. Unable to direct dial Jeff Bezos, I did the next best thing and called the author support line. Surely this was an oversight and people should be able to find my book by entering the title into the search bar.
After several hours on the phone, the news was not good. The only way that my title will ever show by typing “practice” into the search bar is to have massive sales. The only way to achieve that goal is by having other people help me. This is a rally cry for that help.

Another idea would be to buy a copy and gift it to a local yoga studio.
