Summary
Jessica struggled with severely fluctuating weight until she took her first yoga class in Katmandu, lost 40 pounds, and changed her life forever. She shares the core principles of yoga philosophy--not the poses and postures, but the ancient system of ideas that lies behind them, drawn from a 2,000 year old text called the Yoga Sutras. Beyond health and dieting, this book shows readers how to gain peace of mind. Jessica goes beyond yoga's merge into mainstream--beyond trendy diets, unsustainable exercise routines, and the quest for the perfect figure. Using spiritual philosophy, and personal stories everyone can relate to, she sets the reader on a journey to self-acceptance, personal peace, and long-term health.--From publisher description
