Omen 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 seuences 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 It made me think about how kind or unkind I can be to myself I found this book very relatable and the stories really made me pause and think I thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely go back to some of the passages for motivation

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 earthuake in Japan and inward to seek the counsel of wise w I really wanted to like this book but it was way too disjointed for me She never seems to get on track and 34 through she s still talking about starting a self help journey for herself Almost like she s trying to pump herself up It s very tiresome for the readerOn the positive side I enjoyed the sections where she recounts her teacher trainings As a yoga student myself I learned from her insights and analogies I also liked reading about her discussions with friends including Cyndi Lauper and Jamie Lee Curtis about being a woman and how we view her bodies

    If you like memoirs about women who struggle with body image and personal relationships take yoga get deeper into their issues travel to India learn a few things and come home to some interesting conclusions DO NOT BE FOOLED INTO READING THIS It is just not a good addition to the genreI pressed on and managed to finish within a few hours of my last update It's uite astounding how bad this book is consider how

    So technically I did not finish this book with less than 100 pages left to read but she made me so mad that I don't care I don't understand how someone who is supposedly such a wonderful yoga instructor could be such a down right mean person She is into fat shaming others and her own beliefs about her body image are so poor Like I mentioned in my update she mentioned the name of her yoga studio 3 times in the first 50 pages and t

    I found this such a brave and moving book Brave because the subject Cyndi Lee's unhappy and critical relationship with her body isn't one yoga teachers especially famous yoga teachers are supposed to have and Lee acknowledges this So to not only admit to this kind of self hatred but to actually write a whole smart funny thoughtful compassionate book about it strikes me as incredibly courageous The idea that we can't really love ot
