Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Yin Yang Yogini is a memoir about transformation, with yoga as the backdrop for change—a story of how one can evolve in midlife and in midstride, of how one can learn to let go of the past, let go of fear, and live with trust in the present moment. 

This is a memoir about a transformational two years of Kathryn E. Livingston’s life, a time in which she learned to trust herself and the universe, even while facing such issues as the death of her parents, her children leaving home for college, panic and anxiety issues, and breast cancer. Livingston’s story is heartfelt, humorous, and timely, and about finding courage, strength, and happiness within.

Review:

"At age 50, parenting writer Livingston experienced a meltdown after an onslaught of real and imagined fears that ranged from airplane hijackings and car crashes to killer bees and botulism. Terrified of death (she 'banned the ‘d' word' from her marriage ceremony) and by nature a skeptic, Livingston reluctantly tries yoga on the advice of a therapist. Her memoir recounts how the practice transformed her perspective, her body, and her experience of breast cancer, which she was diagnosed with during her second year as a yoga student. Initially stymied by the many paradoxes contained in yoga philosophy and intimidated by the young, svelte, perfectly clad women she meets in yoga classes, she soon cultivates her self-confidence, finds inspiring teachers, and perceives serendipitous gifts of love and friendship by learning to live gratefully in the present moment. Livingston offers candid opinions on a gamut of subjects — marriage and motherhood, politics and religion, haircuts and health-food stores — along with equal doses of humor and hard-won wisdom. Her uplifting story will remind readers that, while life will never be perfect, one can create an oasis of peace in the midst of crises large and small. (Feb.)"
