Product Description

Part of the Bradt Travel Guides series.

Elizabeth Gowing is not a likely yogini She is too fond of cake and to-do lists, and sometimes falls over on her mat. But yoga has taken her on journeys both inward and outward, and in this book, Elizabeth travels around Britain to join others who practise it - from the village hall where a quivering triangle pose is interrupted by the recycling collection, to the soaring aerial yoginis of Surrey.

Whether on a National Trust site or in a prison, in Newcastle or Nottingham, East Anglia or West Kilbride, she untangles Ashtanga from the Kundalini, ancient Sanskrit from the whimsical new-age, and discovers ways in which yoga is rebuilding communities and lives - as well as her own wobbling body.

Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, Unlikely Positions (in Unlikely Places) describes her yogic adventures, the characters met along the way, and the current of this shared experience that runs quietly through British society. It's a story of ancient wisdom solving modern day problems, as well as the exultation of finally mastering the Crow.
