"Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, a leading scholar and proselytizer for physical well-being, elucidates the political and social implications of America's exercise cult(ure). Delving into the paradox of why so many Americans are physically unfit, despite the power of the exercise industry, Petrzela shows fitness to be both a product and a marker of education, social class, wealth, power, and more. Like much in postwar American life, fitness has been privatized, and the resulting dominant ideology of exercise is a product of neoliberal political and culture choices. Petrzela reveals a story that puts Charles Atlas, Jane Fonda, the Chippendales, and so many lesser-known people at the center of American culture, media, and politics"--

For yoga teachers at every stage of their careers – not a what-to-teach guide but a how-to-teach guide **Includes guidance on adapting your teaching to online platforms** There's so much more to teaching yoga than doing yoga -- from building a relationship with a studio (or opening your own) to navigating client relationships, publicising classes, and avoiding burnout. Sage Rountree has been training yoga teachers for over a decade, and she's heard the same concerns over and over: How can I help my students best? How can I keep my teaching fresh? How can I make smart choices around my schedule, my money, and the next steps in my career? The Professional Yoga Teacher's Handbook speaks directly to these concerns in a warm, friendly voice --boosting teachers' confidence in their ability to construct a heartfelt, balanced class, and to build a career that suits them. Rountree includes stories from her own experience, journal prompts, and thoughtful workbook exercises to help aspiring yoga teachers discern their path, and to provide current yoga teachers with much-desired continuing education. This is the book every yoga teacher needs!
