Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice by Baron Baptist
Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced practitioner, Perfectly Imperfect is a must-read. Part self-help book, part guidebook, Baptist brings important insights that go beyond asana—and by extension can help you transform your life.
At its core, it’s about understanding who you are at a deep level so that you don’t get lost in yoga (or anything else).
It’s about knowing when to push harder, when to ease up, and how to keep getting better without forgetting what got you there in the first place.
If your practice is struggling (or if it never quite gets off the ground), read Perfectly Imperfect. You won’t regret it.
If you’re a beginner interested in trying yoga, Baptist’s comprehensive guide will help you learn how yoga postures work and how they can improve your health.
It features detailed sections on practicing safely, ways of holding poses, aligning your body, variations on poses, modifications that may be needed based on your body type or injuries you may have sustained.
It also includes an extensive list of resources at the end to ensure that anyone can find what they need.
It may seem counterintuitive, but one of the best ways to learn yoga is by beginning with its most extreme practitioners.
You can get a sense of what it’s all about (including breathing exercises) by watching videos online; or you can find a class in your area that teaches Hot Yoga—it’s so physically demanding, some of its practitioners consider it only for advanced yogis.
The book Perfectly Imperfect by Baron Baptist is considered one of yoga’s premier guides for people who are very new to yoga practice; however, it does suggest that if you are inexperienced you take part in classes designed specifically to introduce students to basic poses and breathing techniques.
