About the Book:
In YOKE, Jessamyn takes readers on an autobiographical journey to self-acceptance. In Sanskrit, yoga means to “yoke.” To yoke mind and body, movement and breath, light and dark, the good and the bad. This larger idea of “yoke” is what Jessamyn calls the yoga of the everyday—a yoga that is not just about perfecting your downward dog but about applying the hard lessons learned on the mat to the even harder daily project of living.
Jessamyn explores the larger themes of intersectionality and self-acceptance that inevitably arise in any yoga practice. She writes generously and openly about her search for authenticity, including her experience with imposter syndrome and self-hate. And she takes a hard look at the limitations and hypocrisies she has come to see in yoga culture—the consumerism, the cultural appropriation, the racism. Tying it all together in her signature singular voice – funny, frank, and warm—YOKE is a unique blend of memoir, philosophy, and self-help.
