Characters May I Be Happy

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

May I Be Happy

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. Honestly I did not read the whole book I have a very low threshold for reading books that don t pull my heart strings and inspire me within the first 20 pages I found Lee s voice a bit too pretentious for my taste and for someone who speaks about happiness I found a lot of anger and resentment present I can see how this book captivates people practicing yoga these days but I found myself wondering if there is a formula publishers and editors are prescribing about what a yoga book should sound like and how it should be written I guess I m a pretty tough critic but May I be happy made me feel like I d just eaten a bad piece of candy

Cyndi Lee Ì 7 Review

In the candid contemplative memoir May I Be Happy revered yoga teacher Cyndi Lee gives readers an unforgettable gift the ability to focus on our experiences as we have them on the way to a lighter life For all her wisdom as a teacher Cyndi Lee founder of New York’s world renowned OM yoga Center understood intuitively that she still had a lot to learn In spite of her success in physically demanding professions dancer choreographer and yoga teacher Lee was caught in a lifelong cycle of repetitive self. This book tried to be too many things and ultimately failed at all of them It was 5 full disks of the author who describes herself at naturally thin with a good metabolism and who is a yoga teacher go on and ON about how fat she thinks she is and how she hates her body Beyond infuriating and boring There were only a few bits about doing or teaching yoga and FAR too much about her dying mother and her dying mother s body The narrative was entirely disjointed and frustrating to follow Ultimately the author speaks to a nun about hating her body and the nun reminds her of some wisdom she already has and she claims that she has changed her mind about hating her body Which isn t exactly true by the last CD If I had read the book version vs audio I would have skipped the dying mother parts and I might have enjoyed it

    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 i
