“I love this book. In an era of so much truth telling and blogging and reality shows we forget how well true stories can be told, when they’re in the right hands. Yoga Bitch has sucked me in and made me laugh and made me think about my own spiritual fucked-up state. You had me at 'Do they make you eat your own poop.'" – Lauren Weedman, Author of A Woman Trapped in a Woman’s Body and former Daily Show correspondent

"Wickedly entertaining yet tragically honest." -Chatelaine.com

"Morrison offers a fresh and new voice in the yoga memoirs genre that is one part deeply exploratory and another giggle-inducing." -- Nancy Alder, Yoga Dork
“Suzanne Morrison recounts her reformative journey at a two-month yoga retreat in Bali with a sense of humor so wicked it would even make Bikram sweat a little.” –Dorothy Robinson, Metro
“Morrison is a funny and engaging writer, at once sincere about her spiritual aspirations and aware of all the clichés they entail.” --Laura Moser, Slate.com

I think any woman on the path to yogic self help should read this book for a bit of humour on their very long long not always humourous journey.
It was cute, witty, made me laugh of out loud and feel a bit saddened at the same time.
A self-proclaimed atheist, Morrison finds herself still yearning and attracted to the "bell and whistles" found in religious rituals and ends up exploring that aspect of herself through yoga during a two-month yoga teacher training retreat in Bali. Beneath the humor is a real look at the shaky ground beneath teacher-student relationships and that delicate line between calling them "enlightened" and "hypocrite". Caught between the ideology of transcendence and the $40 scented candles for sale at the local yoga studio, she intelligently explores territory that will be familiar to those of us who try to maintain a spiritual practice in a very material world.
If you are thinking of getting into yoga seriously and wonder if you need to change your whole lifestyle - this is the perfect book for you!
I recommend this book to everyone (even if they aren't a yogi) - every one has enjoyed it.
