Read an Excerpt
Achieving balance in our modern world is not so easy. Pressed for time, people have turned to yoga to fulfill their needs for physical fitness, relaxation, a deep spiritual life, and an active social life. Yoga has become both the coolest exercise and the coolest form of community. The yoga studio is where we exercise, release our stress, meet new people, and see old friends. We feel more relaxed, more energetic, and our worries (and pains in the neck) exit as we leave the yoga studio. We feel great in our bodies, so we feel great in our spirits. We then naturally want to connect with people in our community in a more meaningful way after class. We want to have fun, and what better way than having a beer, a glass of wine, dinner, or a cup of coffee together?

It was so refreshing to find a light-hearted yoga book, one that made me smile, but also inspired me with the joys of practice! Yoga is so widespread now; why not portray it as part of the social scene? Yoga means "yoked to God." Why not be "yoked to Joy?" Joy seems to be the highest synonym for God!
