May I Be Happy

Judgment about her body Instead of the radical contentment expected in international yoga teachers she realized that hating her body was a form of suffering which was infecting her closest relationships including her relationship to herself Inspired by the honesty and vulnerability of her students Lee embarked on a journey of self discovery that led her outward from the sacred sites of the parched Indian countryside to the center of the 2011 earthuake in Japan and inward to seek the counsel of wise w I really wanted to like this book but it was way too disjointed for me She never seems to get on track and 34 through she s still talking about starting a self help journey for herself Almost like she s trying to pump herself up It s very tiresome for the readerOn the positive side I enjoyed the sections where she recounts her teacher trainings As a yoga student myself I learned from her insights and analogies I also liked reading about her discussions with friends including Cyndi Lauper and Jamie Lee Curtis about being a woman and how we view her bodies

    If you like memoirs about women who struggle with body image and personal relationships take yoga get deeper into their issues travel to India learn a few things and come home to some interesting conclusions DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO READING THIS It is just not a good addition to the genreI pressed on and managed

    This book tried to be too many things and ultimately failed at all of them It was 5 full disks of the author who describes herself at naturally thin with a good metabolism and who is a yoga teacher go on and ON about how fat she thinks she is and how she hates her body Beyond infuriating and boring There were only a few bits about doing or teaching yoga and FAR too much about her dying mother and her dying mother's body The narra

    Can't say I really liked this one There are better books about body image and better ones about yogaI think the most glaring problem after the obsessive name dropping was it just felt way too self centered even for an autobiography And while the author focuses on her issues it just never seems to result in real growth and change just ever de

    So technically I did not finish this book with less than 100 pages left to read but she made me so mad that I don't care I don't understand how someone who is supposedly such a wonderful yoga instructor could be such a down right mean person She is into fat shaming others and her own beliefs about her body image are so poor Like I mentioned in my update she mentioned the name of her yoga studio 3 times in the first 50 pages and the constan

    I found this such a brave and moving book Brave because the subject Cyndi Lee's unhappy and critical relationship with her body isn't one yoga teachers especially famous yoga teachers are supposed to have and Lee acknowledges this So to not only admit to this kind of self hatred but to actually write a whole smart funny thoughtful compassion

    A friend in publishing who knows I'm an avid yogini passed this memoir along to me I enjoyed it Lee reflects on what it means to be a woman inhabiting a woman's body and how she has struggled with her body image her whole life While I found the inspiration for the memoir well founded––the desire to display Lee's own insecurities in orde
