 “The depth and uniqueness of Cécile’s experience make her a compelling voice and viewpoint in the world of yoga asana. Any yoga teacher trainee who gets to experience the breadth of her insight, wisdom, and postural understanding will be well-served in their career as a successful, evolving, present, and sensitive yoga teacher and human being.” Rev. Anthe A. Kelley – M.A., Eastern Classics, ERYT, Reiki Master/Teacher, Yoga Teacher and Founder/Training Director Akasha Yoga School

“Cecile’s book is full of knowledge and wisdom. We are asked key questions to help us realize how we may misuse our body both in our practice and in our daily life. It reads both like a novel and a workbook and offers beautiful exercises to help us make profound changes. It is extremely valuable to anyone who wants to experience the joy of being embodied with ease on and off the mat. I highly recommend it!” Mona Kelley – Yoga Teacher, Pilates instructor

“While reading this book, I experienced a profound shift in my body awareness which opened the door to deeper healing. It has completely changed the way I experience movement and daily life. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in any kind of restorative healing practice!” Lauren Almquist – Yoga Practitioner, Dancer, and Herbalist

“Great for yogis, dancers, and anyone who wants to feel better in their skin. This is SO needed in the yoga world! Thanks, Cécile for your beautiful work!” Relinde Moore – Yoga teacher, Dancer, and Choreographer

The yoga community is waiting for what it does not know it’s lacking and this book shows us the way!” Kathleen Flanagan – Yoga Practitioner and Educational Researcher
