Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi

by Brian Leaf

As a college freshman business major suffering from a variety of anxiety-related maladies, Brian Leaf stumbled into an elective: yoga. It was 1989. All his classmates were female. And men did not yet generally "cry, hug, or do yoga." But yoga soothed and calmed Leaf as nothing else had. As his hilarious and wise tale shows, Leaf embarked on a quest for health and happiness -- visiting yoga studios around the country and consulting Ayurvedic physicians, swamis, and even (accidentally) a prostitute. Twenty-one years later, he teaches yoga and meditation and is the beloved founder of a holistic tutoring center that helps students whose ailments he once shared.

Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi

by Brian Leaf

In his Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi, Brian Leaf both inspired and amused as he described the myriad ways that yoga changed his life - and why his life as a college student suffering from anxiety, colitis, and ADD needed changing. Now Leaf turns the page, letting readers in on his meeting with future wife Gwen (at the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health), their "Not Not-Trying" and subsequent pregnancy - and Leaf's wearing of a synthetic strap-on belly during downward dog posture. As the latter shows,Leaf took parenthood seriously from the get-go and so he explores Attachment, Playful, Unconditional, Simplicity, and good old Dr. Spock parenting. Humorous trial and poignant error lead Leaf to "conscious parenting. " And it's this recognition of the supremely practical benefits of being fully present to each new reality that gives Leaf, and readers, a glimpse of the very heart of yoga.
