Yoga and Body Image Book

It is a great pleasure to announce that I will have a chapter in an upcoming book on Yoga and Body Image.
This book is the brainchild of two extraordinary women Anna Guest-Jelley, and
Melanie Klein.

They could have written the book themselves but they are…

…fiercely committed to bringing together a diverse collection of voices that span across race/ethnicity, sexuality and sexual orientation, gender and gender identity, sex, class, age and size.

The book will arrive in 2014 and will feature a diverse range of contributors.

    I just loved
    the move because that is actually benefiting both the people of the U.S and the
    NGOS over there will be getting the 10% profit. It is actually a nice move to
    make people healthy by doing yoga in open parks that will be fun to do, this
    will make their weekend complete in every aspect and in turn will make them
    feel a lot more rejuvenated. . I will definitely be sharing your this view
    in http://www.prasanthistudio.com/about-us.html yoga classes where I go for
    yoga practicing.
