I wanted to just read about yoga. Run away!!

Uses a ton of words like "Cis-gendered", " Cultural Appropriation" and "CE instead of AD".

Jessamyn reminds you to genuflect because you are "appropriating" eastern culture. She also swears constantly, it is an overused technique to make her seem more "accessible" but it just makes her seem extremely crude.

This book is so Marxist it's obnoxious.

A beautiful reminder that yoga is for everyone, with plenty of pictures and instructions to make it accessible. Stanley also delves into aspects of yoga beyond the asanas (poses) and highlights bits of her personal life to illustrate how she came to her practice.

This is about so much more than just learning yoga. Love it.

Part memoir, part instruction, all good. Jessamyn Stanley (who teaches in Durham!) shares her journey to yoga and self-acceptance via lots of rad nineties looks. Her tone is fun and totally relatable - you'll feel like she's talking to you (and motivating you), all while demystifying and de-snobifying the world of yoga. Love this book, love her.

Such a fantastic book. If you have ever considered yoga but couldn't picture yourself doing it, please take a look at this book.
