Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the candid, contemplative memoir May I Be Happy, revered yoga teacher Cyndi Lee gives readers an unforgettable gift: the ability to focus on our experiences as we have them, on the way to a lighter life.

For all her wisdom as a teacher, Cyndi Lee—founder of New York’s world renowned OM yoga Center—understood intuitively that she still had a lot to learn. In spite of her success in physically demanding professions—dancer, choreographer, and yoga teacher—Lee was caught in a lifelong cycle of repetitive self-judgment about her body. Instead of the radical contentment expected in international yoga teachers, she realized that hating her body was a form of suffering, which was infecting her closest relationships—including her relationship to herself.

Inspired by the honesty and vulnerability of her students, Lee embarked on a journey of self-discovery that led her outward—from the sacred sites of the parched Indian countryside to the center of the 2011 earthquake in Japan—and inward, to seek the counsel of wise women, friends and strangers both. Applying the ancient Buddhist practice of loving-kindness meditation to herself, Lee learned that compassion is the only antidote to hatred, thereby healing her heart and changing her mind.

With prose as agile as the yoga sequences she creates, May I Be Happy gives voice to Lee’s belief that every life arises, abides, and ultimately dissolves. By becoming her own best student, Lee internalizes the strength, stability, and clarity she imparts in her Buddhist-inspired yoga classes.

Synopsis:

A celebrated yoga instructor brings the rigors and rewards of yoga class to the home with a unique teaching method. Instead of directions and minimal pictures, exercises are communicated through easy-to-follow illustrations and streamlined instructions. Concealed Wire-O binding.

Synopsis:

More than two hundred two-color illustrations and easy-to-follow instructions present a series of daily yoga routines, including sun salutations, balancing poses, inversions, and seated poses, along with sections on meditation, breathing exercises, tips, and more.

Synopsis:

In OM Yoga: A Daily Practice, Cyndi brings the rigors and rewards of her yoga class to the home with a totally unique method of teaching. Instead of wordy descriptions and minimal pictures, each series of asanas is communicated entirely through easy-to-follow illustration, accompanied by streamlined instructions and tips. Designed in a practical, concealed wire-o format that lays flat on the floor while being used, OM Yoga is organized in tabbed sections for each day of the week. Monday is devoted to the Sun Salutation to welcome the week's start. Thursday's practice focuses on sitting poses, when the week's energy is dwindling. When joined together, each day's recipe cultivates a yoga practice that is challenging, energizing, and restorative. Including sections on medititation, breathing, and do-it-yourself yoga "recipes" for all levels, OM Yoga: A Daily Practice creates the possibility for a meaningful yoga practice in the privacy of the home.

Synopsis:

Too busy to attend yoga class but can't be bothered to read the endless guidelines in the latest yoga book? In OM Yoga: A Guide to Daily Practice, celebrated yoga teacher Cyndi Lee brings the rigors and rewards of yoga class to the home in an easy, accessible way.
