Living Yoga: Creating a Life Practice
by by Christy Turlington | Oct 9, 2002
This book. This book came out when I had been practicing for about two years. The first year I started practicing yoga, I was too scared to walk into a yoga studio. Funny to think about that now. I had three DVDs from Rodney Yee at Gaiam and I just cycled through them every day. By 2001, I found a little studio a couple of blocks away from where I was working in downtown Seattle and I started practicing in person, hiding in the back of the room. That’s the year I became a yogi, as opposed to somebody just doing the poses. This book was the first book that really spoke to me. Yep, it’s by Christy Turlington, and if you’re thinking, “What could a supermodel possibly know about yoga?” then you might be surprised to know that she is a true yogi (self-described ‘hard-core’). I LOVE this book. Get the hardcover, it’s beautiful and worth it. It is a great, personal exploration of how a real person can be a yogi.
