Jessamyn Stanley could get anyone excited about yoga. The whole point of her book is that everyone can benefit from yoga, no matter your size, age, or ability. I have really enjoyed incorporating a home yoga practice into my weekly routine, and while I’m not super into books about fitness, Every...

I need a paper copy of this amazing book! This is the inspirational story of someone who struggled to fit into the classic image of a yoga practitioner but was resilient and determined, so much so that she truly is inspiration in encouraging others to persevere and have a go. The book is part mem...

Let me start by saying that I have done yoga before and I found it to be energising and after my lunchtime classes I did go back to the office feeling light and perhaps a little happier sounding than my regular office self. But I didn't keep up "the practice" as it's referred to here....

When I wrote this review, there was only one other review in Goodreads, and the reviewer didn't like how this book wasn't more about Yoga, and the poses, and what kind of yoga book is this anyway. And, at first, when I started to read this book, I wondered the same thing. Why is there so much tex...

Copy received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
Jessamyn Stanley is such an inspiration! She's not your stereotypical ideal of a yoga practitioner - i.e. a tiny white girl. I thought that her personal history and everything she's gone through to become who she is was lovely. I enjoy...

An excellent book for anyone interested in trying yoga, but are fearful or intimidated. It was a nice kick in the pants for me to start a more regular and consistent practice.
