She lost her career to a spinal injury. She lost herself to motherhood. Then Stephanie’s best friend invited her to join a year in yoga, which turned out to be more than she bargained for. An Accidental Awakening is yoga off the mat and into life as she is thrown into qigong in the snow, fire ceremonies on her lawn, walking on hot coals, tapping her sixth sense, chanting, ranting and crying – all while making meals and tucking kids into bed in-between. Using the chakras as a roadmap and yoga, her vehicle, Stephanie takes readers on a year-long adventure down an ancient path toward healing.
Told in a style that the New York Times describes as “self-help memoir,” An Accidental Awakening offers readers the tools and inspiration they need to transform their lives: to find family in yoga and yoga in family.
