The many true-to-life situations in the book are based on Nevitt’s experiences and observations over a 30-year period as a full-time yoga and meditation teacher.
Aside from providing good laughs, Nevitt aims to gently poke those teachers and students who might have a tendency to take themselves and the practice of yoga a little too seriously. Yoga and mindfulness practitioners will smile knowingly as they recognise the all-too-familiar scenarios which Nevitt skewers throughout the book. So settle into your favourite yoga pose and let ‘The Lighter Side of Yoga’ get your chakras spinning!
