“This book will shine new light on your journey, ignite your practice with new power, inspire new possibilities for growth, and infuse your life with the grace and confidence you seek.” —Baron Baptiste
A little over a decade ago, Baron Baptiste published his seminal book, Journey into Power. The first of its kind, it introduced the world to Baptiste Yoga, his signature method that marries a lifetime of studying with some of the world’s most renowned yoga masters with his uniquely powerful approach to inner and outer transformation. Since then, yoga has steadily moved into the mainstream in our culture, and Baron’s unique contribution has played a key role. As millions of participants incorporate yoga into their daily lives, Baron’s teachings have evolved to bring them even deeper into their own transformative possibilities.
Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice takes readers beyond the foundations of the practice by speaking to everything that happens in their bodies and minds after they get into a yoga pose. That is where the true transformation occurs, and where much rich spiritual and emotional growth is available. Readers will learn how to move through their lives with grace and flow, begin again when a situation becomes difficult, “be a yes” for their innermost desires, give up what they must, follow their intuition, and find their truth north.
With his signature blend of boldness, insightfulness, humor, and warmth, Baron offers what is destined to be an instant classic in the yoga and meditation world. With Perfectly Imperfect, he proves once again to be a true yoga master for the modern world.

This small book takes time to inhale like a deep in-breath. Like the inhale it fills me with insights for yoga and life. Now that I've read it cover to cover, It becomes a day book to open for inspiration, grounding and letting go. Gratitude fills my heart for this strengthening book. Baptiste jo...

Full disclosure: this isn't a book I would normally choose for myself. But, someone suggested a book club (which never actually came into the picture) that was reading this book. So, because I've come to love yoga I gave the book a go. And, honestly, it's good. It has some of the same issues I fi...

Very similar to all of the other books by Baron Baptiste that I’ve read. Good insight the first time, and a good reminder and emphasis for me at the same time.

Amazing book about having patience with yourself - its message can be applied to all areas of life, not just yoga. Would recommend to anyone who struggles with trying to be perfect all the time.

A wonderful life / yoga book
Love the daily approach to practice , every time you step on your mat is an opportunity for a new perspective . I paraphrase - yesterday's breakthroughs are today's ego. I often find myself expecting my yoga practice to be stagnate , or at least, the same expression of...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this book that my older brother gifted me for Christmas. At first glance you might assume it is about yoga and deepening your practice but it is just as much about life as it is about yoga. I love books that are very easy to pick up at any moment and each chapter can stand alone. T...

Ok so there's parts of this book I liked. Baptiste had good insights. I just feel like he's missing a step. He talks about how he did yoga as a youth but it was rote. Then he goes into explaining things in more depth. It's quite fascinating actually. He briefly touches on mindfulness but mostly s...

Really enjoyed this and the validation it gave me as a teacher that hasn't ever fit the traditional "yogi" mold. Not a lot of new revelations, more basic truths than you forget along the way and through the busyness of life. You are perfect as you. Accept your flaws so you can move forward. Enjoy...

Even though I practice yoga from time to time I read this book not so much with the mindset of yoga but rather life. And the book makes many references to this way of thinking. The chapter that caught my attention the most is about breath. And this sentence in that chapter was intriguing to me: "...

I started reading this book to re-ignite my yoga practice after finding out about my back issues. And instead I have clarified my YES. This principle alone has changed my perspective to the extent I had to shared it with my counselling students. It has changed how I view my yoga practice a...
