Descrição do produto
baby daughter. Told to try yoga by everyone from the woman behind the
counter at the co-op to the homeless guy on the corner, she signed up
for her first class. She fell madly in love.
next decade, she tackled Triangle, Wheel and the dreaded Crow, becoming
fast friends with some poses and developing long-standing feuds with
others. At the same time she found herself confronting the forces that
shaped her generation.
Daughters of women who ran
away to find themselves and made a few messes along the way, Claire and
her peers grew up determined to be good, good, good. Yoga seemed to fit
right into this virtuous programme, but to her surprise the deeper
Claire went into the poses the more they tested her most basic ideas of
what goodness really means.
tells the story of how yoga helped Claire to discover that being joyful
is sometimes more important than being good. Witty and heartfelt, sharp
and irreverent, this is a book for anyone who has ever tried to stand on
their head while keeping both feet on the ground.
