Win a Copy of Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi!

— Yoga Journal



From its first hilariously humiliating image to its closing words of grace, Brian Leaf’s memoir is an unfolding miracle.



– Rebecca Pepper Sinkler, former editor of The New York Times Book Review




Brian writes about his new book:


The book tells the story of how I found yoga, how yoga helped me get off medication and heal my colitis, and how yoga allowed me to grow and find my heart. There’s also a bit about a dog, an accidental visit to a prostitute (I thought she was a massage therapist), lots of yoga, and the story of how I met my wife. I like to think of it as Eat, Pray, Love rewritten by Bill Cosby or maybe Louis CK.
