Tales From The Yoga Studio to read. I am very picky about books I review because I love reading and the "to-read" list grows longer by the day so I choose what to add very selectively. Still, when I saw the title and the book cover, I couldn't resist [Yes, I've been known to judge a book by its cover a great number of times]. This is the first time in years I read a review copy but I'm glad I did.
This novel leads us through the struggles of a yoga instructor who loves her craft and helps her students not just with yoga but helping them in the other aspects of their lives as well though her own personal life is far from perfect with her marital struggles and the constant pressure to go with a lucrative contract with a fast-growing franchise who'd love to have her on board but would require her to give up her personal studio where so many adore her and rely upon her. The story focuses on a group of yoga students and the personal struggles they are going through. There is something for everyone to relate to in reading this, be it watching the struggles of smaller stores resisting corporate buy-out pressures, to the individual struggles of the women featured in this story. Over all, it was a light quick read and as a wanna be yogi one that helped me live vicariously through the women in the book.
