May I Be Happy

by Cyndi Lee

Nowadays, yoga is everywhere. Many different types with sometimes many difficult philosophies. Because this discipline is new to us, we tend to make gurus out of the teachers that introduce us and guide us through. Unfortunately, yoga teachers are subject to be placed on pedestals and are expected to rise above the everyday things that affect most of us.

Cyndi Lee, a yoga teacher with worldwide acclaim, has written a refreshing memoir mostly about her changing relationship with her body and her inner self as she gets older. She tells of her history as a dancer, choreographer, and famous yoga teacher who is still insecure about her body despite continuing outside validation. Unlike other books that chronicle yoga as a way to combat body image issues, May I Be Happy pulls the veil back on our perception of perfection to show that it isn’t as easy as just striking a pose. This isn’t a self-help book, but one woman’s story about acceptance.
