Book Description

14 Jun 2013
What happens when a coffee-drinking, cigarette-smoking, steak-eating twenty-five-year-old atheist decides it is time to get in touch with her spiritual side? Not what you d expect...
 
When Suzanne Morrison decides to travel to Bali for a two-month yoga retreat, she wants nothing more than to be transformed from a twenty-five-year-old with a crippling fear of death into her enchanting yoga teacher, Indra a woman who seems to have found it all: love, self, and God.
 
But things don t go quite as expected. Once in Bali, she finds that her beloved yoga teacher and all of her yogamates wake up every morning to drink a large, steaming mug...of their own urine. Sugar is a mortal sin. Spirits inhabit kitchen appliances. And the more she tries to find her higher self, the more she faces her cynical, egomaniacal, cigarette-, wine-, and chocolate-craving lower self.
 
Yoga Bitch chronicles Suzanne s hilarious adventures and misadventures as an aspiring yogi who might be just a bit too skeptical to drink the Kool-Aid. But along the way she discovers that no spiritual effort is wasted; even if her yoga retreat doesn t turn her into the gorgeously calm, wise believer she hopes it will, it does plant seeds that continue to blossom in surprising ways over the next decade of her life.

So the yoga bitch attributes all these mystic things to her yoga teacher, then dismisses her as a fraud when she discovers her teacher is a mere mortal.

Your teacher was just trying to teach you yoga postures and some meditation, Suzanne, no more no less. Don't put teachers on a pedestal giving them imagined qualities. I feel sorry for your teacher, while I find you quite the whiner.

Quite readable (hence two stars) but not the best written book I have read, nor the best subject matter.

Format:Paperback
Fantastic book, exceeded my expectations. I thought that it would be another "yappie yoga chick flick" (a genre started by books like Eat, Love and Pray; Holly Cow and others lighter versions). I was truly surprised that this book touched deeper, definetly it would be especially understood and felt by those who have been practising yoga and greatly enjoyed by all readers. Great sense of humour and naked truth honesty.Well done.

4.0 out of 5 stars cheap flights to Bali? 3 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have practised and taught yoga for many years and I really enjoyed this author's honest and entertaining account of her journey. I think a lot of people might buy this book because it is quite humorous, and it certainly made me want to get on the next flight to Bali and do some yoga there. What I most related to, however, is how the author passed through enthusiasm, thinking her teachers were superhuman and had all the answers, to disillusion when she realised they didn't , to a sense of a deep connection to her inner self, which is what yoga is really about. I wish she hadn' t called it ' yoga bitch' as I would like to suggest my students read it, but I am a bit embarrassed to say I am reading a book with such a title, otherwise 5 stars. It takes great honesty to admit that we want to impress and be noticed by our teachers, how wanting to be the best in the class at something doesn't disappear when we leave school. Yoga has become big business, particularly in the USA and I think this book is a very thoughtful warning of how easy it is to miss the whole point of yoga and be seduced into following false leaders along a false path.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga Bitch - Couldnt put it down! 10 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
This is a definate must read for all fans of yoga and intelligent chick lit.
I have likened this to the tale of a Bridget Jones in the world of yoga! It tells the tale of a neurotic self obsessed lady on her search for the true meaning of life or is it a quest to find the perfect relationship??
It is a very funny book that has left an impression on me and now made me want to both travel to Bali and drink my own pee!
Well done for a great funny book
