Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses

Huffington Post

I took a expository writing class for one of my last classes in college. I was not very good at it, but walked away with a valuable life lesson taught by my teacher: Good writing starts with honesty.

This book caught my eye as I once practiced Yoga, and wanted to go back to the lonely road of independent practice. If you are reading this book expecting it to teach you Yoga, you are reading the wrong book. This is the author’s sometimes rewarding, sometimes joyful, sometimes cruel, sometimes painful, but honest, truthful, keep-it-at-100 life journey. She used Yoga poses to draw a parallel to a phase of her life she was going through.

The author’s lesson is simple: Life is a journey, and the moment you live in right now comes from all the journeys and choices you made before. The journey you go through today will lead you to future journeys. Life is also mostly 20/20 hindsight.
