Anyway, I now know not to order any more products from her. My mistake. Yoginis who don't like Cyndi Lee's way of writing or humourous asides on her media (I do, by the way) should avoid this product, as it is much more frivolous than Ms Lee's.....
Kimberly makes a regular practice seem more of a jaunty adventure then an obligatory exercise. The effervescent tone of this book does not forfeit important information or belittle yoga's powerful and historical significances. It is solid in its recommendations and instructions and honors those who practice yoga. Kimberly's passion is apparent and strengthens all aspects of her book. And her obvious delight in her own personal practice is at the heart of the book. Every chapter ends with suggestions and guidance for additional resources: recommended books, websites, cd's and other authors and experts. That is unusual and incredibly generous of her to promote others in her own book ; but that exemplifies her attitude of doing good and doing well.
She is successful studio owner and markets a clothing line; but donates a healthy percentage of her profits to local charities, women's shelters, transitional programs for for women entering the workforce and organizations that promote the arts - giving women the chance to work at their craft.
Despite the demands on her time, Kimberly teaches workshops, teacher trainings and some Yoga I classes all with the same bubbly attitude and attention to form.
The book is just like she is. Good for you and fun too.
It is a clever juxtaposition of a how-to-manual, motivational reading, witty essays and a tremendous amount of serious content. I have now read the book twice and look forward to many more readings. Every chapter asks some critical questions and includes some questions for journaling (nothing onerous). These have been especially valuable to me and may help me to make major life change as the exercises are designed to help determine if you are pursuing the dreams you once (or still) cherished. I am considering a career change but frankly even an attitude change would be a welcome change! And while I am a middle-aged suburban mother working in a very conservative field - I do think there is a "Hip Tranquil Chick" spirit within me. I would not have made that statement prior to reading this book. For all those who need advice, validation, compassion or a smile; this is a must read.
