The Yoga School Dropout Website – for all your adventures in yoga

Hello, everyone.

Yoga School Dropout was about my yoga school adventures in India – my search for mystic Indians, Tantric bliss, a pretzel like body and, um, a man.

One of the great joys of being published has been getting emails from yogis who wanted to share their yoga adventures with me.

These mails gave me the idea for a website where we can share our adventures in yoga – on and off the yoga mat.

It will be a place to update the Yoga School Dropout trail, a place to detail your own yoga trail, to recommend teachers and destinations, to comment on other yogis’ posts, to blog and post photos of our adventures in yoga

…from a trip to India to trying a new neighbourhood yoga class…

…from the people you met on a yoga holiday to how yoga has affected your relationships…

…from the way your yoga practice inspired a new project to reinventing yourself in an all too familiar job…

Think of it as Facebook meets Tripadvisor – a social place to share yoga recommendations and to connect with your yoga friends.

So, if you would like to be a founding Dropout please sign up below and start telling everyone about your yogic adventures. When the site is ready we will migrate your posts to the new website…

Of course, I’ll be writing about it all on a regular basis here on Elephant Journal.  And we have a lively discussion of the book going on at  Twitter #ysdo.

About Lucy Edge

I was a burnout corporate, working eighty hour weeks in advertising. Nothing in my life was working, so I decided to straighten myself out with six months in the yoga schools of India. While I scrambled around trying to find my guru, yoga worked quietly behind the scenes; peeling away the layers to reveal new possibilities. I realised, as I packed five volumes of diaries in my suitcase, that my happiness lay in writing. Random House published Yoga School Dropout a year later. Suddenly I was getting emails from all over the world. As I’d shared the story of my transition, from corporate burn out to born again writer, readers shared theirs; how yoga was helping them transform their lives – as small business owners, mothers, yoga teachers, designers. The list went on, and on. I loved the creativity of these stories and wanted to share and celebrate them with everyone – yogis and newbies alike. So I created YogaClicks – a place for us to inspire, inform and equip each other as we transform ourselves through yoga. Please join us - together we can get the world on its mat.
