Yoga School Dropout Paperback
by Lucy Edge
A sharply funny travelogue from a fantastic travel writer.
Lucy Edge tells the story of her personal quest for serenity and yogic flexibility through the ashrams and gurus of India.
After over a decade spent working and drinking too much in the world of advertising, Lucy decided she had to leave town for an altogether more spiritual and, well, meaningful way of life - And whilst she was at it, she could acquire a newly lithe and supple body.
Would she come home looking like Christy Turlington and pick up some Buddhist serenity on the way? Or did something much funnier, interesting and complicated happen?
Did she fall in love - with a place and its people? A divine comedy of the Western obsession with life's deeper meaning, a yogic experiment and a love letter to India, this is a very funny book from a wonderful travel writer.

Review by biunicorn
Yoga School Dropoutby Lucy EdgeThis book is cute, funny and has a lot of to offer us all. I have always admired the ability some people have to laugh at themselves, and this author does it with such finesse that it gave me permission to laugh at myself too (well at least snicker). This is a exciting first person account of what happens when an over indulging seeker in the wonderful world of advertising finally gets the calling to see what life spiritually has to offer. I love Lucy's descriptive style of writing, it is so relaxed and dedicated to detail that I felt like I was right there in India, on her travels with her. Sometimes I think as a seeker it is easy to get caught in a rut of enlightened channels so deep that it becomes hard to see the truth, and this blessed gift of sunshine has done just that for me. There is an expression, "out of the mouth of babes" and this book brings a vitally needed refreshing look at spirituality and our quest for it. I would recommend this one to all who seek, love, light and happiness and who sometimes fine the process a little confusing and a lot funny. Thanks Lucy, for your precious gift of humor.Love & Light,Riki Frahmann
