As a yoga teacher, I’m super discerning when it comes to books about yoga in American culture. Here is a truly diverse, honest, and intelligent collection of essays considering how yoga relates to body image and beauty standards, unafraid to ask challenging questions about race, gender, and the commercialization of what is, at its heart, a spiritual AND physical discipline.  

— Julia


In this remarkable, first-of-its-kind book, twenty-five contributors--including musician Alanis Morissette, celebrity yoga instructor Seane Corn, and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Sara Gottfried--discuss how yoga and body image intersect. Through inspiring personal stories you'll discover how yoga not only affects your physical health, but also how you feel about your body.

Offering unique perspectives on yoga and how it has shaped their lives, the writers provide tips for using yoga to find self-empowerment and improved body image. This anthology unites a diverse collection of voices that address topics across the spectrum of human experience, from culture and media to gender and sexuality. Yoga and Body Image will help you learn to connect with and love your beautiful body.
