Description

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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 30, 2011 – This winning memoir first took shape as a one-woman show that Morrison still performs in her native Seattle, and it translates nicely to written form: the author's voice is thoughtful, honest, and hilarious. Morrison looks back on her younger self with a mix of empathy and exasperation, touching off her story with the intense fear of death that overtook her when she turned 25, just a month after September 11. Her new yoga teacher, the serene Indra, offers her an opportunity to improve her yoga and connect with her spirituality via a two-month retreat in Bali. There, Morrison embraces her yoga practice, improving poses but remaining skeptical of poseurs. Journal entries from that time alternately pulsate with enthusiasm for yoga, Morrison's yoga-mates, and the Earth—and ooze irritation at coffee cravings, self-righteousness, and others' insistence on drinking their own urine. Morrison finds some of what she sought, including the courage to end her sputtering romantic relationship.

Customer Reviews

I love this book!

Honestly I wish it would keep going, never ending! Great for anyone, especially us yoga teachers in training. It takes such a fun approach to telling the story of life's difficult yet beautiful journey! A must for anyones path to enlightenment!

Read This in 3 Days

I love reading stories that are true accounts of other people's lives. This was a great read- I read it in three days- I just didn't want the book to end. It is easy to read and easy to relate to. Not only is the book entertaining , it is also motivating. The only negative would be that I became a fan of the author on FaceBook and she does not interact with her readers at all. I mean it it was a great short read but come on, I have had crazier experiences in my lifetime. It is not ALL that.

Great!

I wish it went on forever, I hope she writes more books!
