Yoga School Dropout is my first yoga book; a yoga memoir describing my personal quest for spiritual riches in the ashrams of India. A divine comedy on the Western obsession with life’s deeper meaning, a yogic experiment and, ultimately, a love letter to India.
After over a decade spent working and drinking too much in the world of advertising, I decided to leave town for an altogether more spiritual and, well, meaningful way of life – and whilst I was at it, I could maybe acquire a newly lithe and supple body.
Would I come home looking like Christy Turlington and pick up some male followers and serenity on the way? Or did something much funnier, more interesting and complicated happen? Did I fall in love – with a place and its people?
Yoga School Dropout has received critical acclaim as one of the best yoga books on India, and as a pioneer of yoga memoir.
