Suzanne Morrison was a coffee drinking, cigarette smoking, steak-eating twenty-five year-old student about to move to New York City when she decided it was time to get in touch with her spiritual side and travel to Bali for a 2 month yoga teacher training program. She envisioned herself in flowing all-white yoga clothes and meditating to enlightenment on the mud floor a thatched hut. And of course, she would move to New York, more beautiful, serene, and spiritually in-tact than ever.

But things don’t go quite as she expected them to. Once in Bali, Suzanne is faced with ant infestations, teachers who believe their kitchen appliances are possessed by spirits, and fellow yogis who, every morning, drink a large, steaming mug of their own…urine.

Yoga Bitch chronicles Suzanne’s hilarious adventures and misadventures of her trip as an aspiring yogi who might be just a bit too cynical and skeptical to drink the Kool-Aid. Along the way she transforms from a young girl with an irrational fear of death to a more mature woman who, while she may not have it all figured out, has found some peace and even some insight into this chaotic world.

Suzanne is attempting enlightenment - so much so that she is traveling to Bali to become a yoga instructor and be at peace with the world. Her memoir takes you through the really funky (in my opinion) things that people do to achieve this. From drinking pee (no, I am not kidding) to discussing other bodily functions in full detail (again, seriously)...I was dying with laughter.

However, the book lost it's humor and zest about halfway through for me. It became more introspective, which may have been cathartic for the author, but given that I'm not a yoga-ish person, it didn't hit a chord with me. I WISH I were - it seems very cool, but I'm too bouncy. Could never focus for that long (although, neither does Suzanne for that matter)...

An enjoyable, short read - especially for those who have taken at least a few yoga classes that will get even more of the humorous aspect.
