Valerie Jeremijenko is a writer and ashtanga yoga practitioner. Her short fiction has been published in several literary journals, and she has studied with leading yoga teachers, including Sri K.

An assistant professor at the department of dance and choreography at Virginia Commonwealth University, she currently teaches yoga at both VCU and Yoga Source, in Richmond.


With the abundance of how-to books about yoga in the marketplace today it is a breath of fresh air to read these intelligent, well-written, funny, and moving accounts of how the practice of yoga has helped this widely diverse group of people maintain balance and perspective in their lives-even when faced with paradox, confusion, isolation, and pain. -Tim Miller, director of the Ashtanga Yoga Center

"A fascinating collection of unique and powerful stories about practicing yoga. How We Live Our Yoga provides needed insight into some of the cross-cultural, ethical, religious, and physical challenges we meet when trying to ground an ancient discipline in our modern world." -Richard Freeman, director of the Yoga Workshop

"This wonderful collection of thought-provoking, well-written personal essays will provide the reader with insight into the everyday world of the American yoga community. I think that any yoga student would thoroughly enjoy this anthology." -John Friend, founder of Anusara Yoga
