Yoga School Dropout

Yoga School Dropout

Author(s): Lucy Edge

Location(s): India

Genre(s): Travelogue

Era(s): Modern



This is the true story of one girls escape from the rat race to explore a variety of ways of deepening her interest in yoga.
She travels to India and goes from Ashram to Ashram, Guru to Guru, Yoga School to Yoga School. You read about the scams and the ‘crazies’ and also the deeply sincere people and spiritual places you could find yourself if you did the same. It’s almost like an informal review of each place, which might prove useful if you were thinking of doing the same. It explains with humour and realism the difficulties of such a path, along with the joys and rewards too. Most interestingly you see Lucy’s inner journey as she struggles with herself, much to the relief of the reader, as you see her own humanity. (Yogamum Esiggers)
