Ten years ago, Claire Dederer put her back out while breastfeeding her baby daughter. Told to try yoga by everyone, she signed up for her first class and fell madly in love. Over the next decade, she would tackle triangle, wheel, and the dreaded crow, becoming fast friends with some poses and developing long-standing feuds with others. She found the deeper she went into the poses, the more they tested her most basic ideas of what makes a good mother, daughter, friend, wife--and the more they made her want something less tidy, more improvisational. Poser is not just about yoga, it's about life.
