The Reluctant Yogi is a book about one woman’s quest to overcome yoga scepticism, find health, calm and a good night’s sleep.
I liked the fact I could relate to the main lead in the book, I too in my youth tried yoga and found it didn’t suit me; it is something I have always been interested in though. It was interesting to read the facts about yoga, how it helps your body as well as your mind. I also liked how honest she was about failing at doing things at first, I could relate to this also.
I wasn’t overly sure if the book was just going to be about yoga and that was it but it was so much more, it was funny and witty, giving a real insight to how yoga helps your body and mind. I felt it was easy to read and understand, even for a beginner who doesn’t know much about yoga. The writer explained things in a way I understood.
It give a lot of facts about yoga, how it came about and it’s history which I found interesting, also how it helps your body such as your blood and heart which I didn’t know.
I liked the book a lot but I felt the retail price wasn’t something I would pay but I tend to buy books when they have gone down in price slightly. I think compared to other yoga books it is not bad value but I would recommend it to others.
