Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi by Brian Leaf

Maybe a little bit unorthodox, but a fun memoir, especially for those who do yoga or want to find out more about getting the most out of yoga. and kripalu yoga.

Chapter 2:
" I wanted to practice and study yoga as much as possible, so I incorporated it into my Georgetown classes in every way that I could. For philosophy class, I wrote a paper entitled "Was Plato the Founder of Yoga?".... And for Catholic imagination class I wrote "Did Jesus Do Yoga?" 

There are yoga practice hints throughout the memoir and appendices with sample yoga practices, meditation techniques, guided relaxation tips, and Ayurvedic recomendations for a healthy lifestyle.

Title: Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi: My Humble Quest to Heal My Colitis, Calm My ADD, and Find the Key to Happiness by Brian Leaf will be released October 9, 2012.

About the author: Brian Leaf is the owner and director of the New Leaf Learning Center in Massachusetts. He has studied, practiced, and taught yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda for 23 years. Information:http://www.misadventures-of-a-yogi.com/praise.html

I received a review copy of the memoir from the publisher, New World Library.

This sounds like a memoir that doesn't take itself too seriously!

Suko: the book is written in a kind of playful style but the author does give constructive suggestions for yoga and daily health.

Sounds like a fun introduction to yoga, something I'd like to learn more about.

Interesting!! I love yoga, and love reading other peoples thoughts and experiences with it!!

I am a yogi, but somehow this book doesn't really appeal to me... I think it's because I don't know this author and I'd rather read a memoir by one of my favourite yogi's :s

Good to hear it's a fun read though!

I think this one sounds like a hoot to read. I want to do yoga and I think after Marc graduates I will truly find the time to do this!

It's been years since I've tried yoga. I need to make the time.
