"I love this book. In an era of so much truth telling and blogging and reality shows we forget how well true stories can be told, when they're in the right hands. Yoga Bitch has sucked me in and made me laugh and made me think about my own spiritual fucked-up state. You had me at 'Do they make you eat your own poop.'" - Lauren Weedman, Author of "A Woman Trapped in a Woman's Body" and former Daily Show correspondent
"Morrison is unflinchingly honest, poking easy fun at herself, her companions, and her surroundings...The lessons from Bali ultimately led her to stop pursuing the life she was supposed to want and start leading the one that nourishes her." -Patty Wetli, "Booklist"
" "
"Writer/performer Morrison offers a totally different take on the yoga experience...she candidly discusses her issues with meditation, exercise, and relationships." -"Library Journal

Reseña del editor:

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.
