This little jewel of a book will be a boon to the legions of current and would-be yoginis (and yogis) out there who struggle with the belief that their bodies are not perfect. Author Sell, a certified Anusara Yoga teacher, candidly discusses her own journey through childhood abuse, adulthood eating disorders, and even obsessive athletic training to accept and become content inhabiting her body. The models in the photographs, many of ample but supple physique, joyously demonstrate various poses, showing that grace and contentment depend not on how well one’s physical form matches arbitrary expectations but on how well one’s attitude serves one’s spiritual aims.
