'No matter how much I'd like to be a yoga glamazon, they are not my tribe. My tribe are aqua crew-cut goddesses who smell like samosas. My tribe are neurotic corporate banshees with white knuckles on Goldman Sachs water bottles. My tribe are seven different lineages that all lead to the same destination.' When Alice Williams gets 'phased out' of her dream job, all the demons she usually silences with food start to get too loud to ignore. Unemployed and depressed, she makes the ultimate middle-class, white-girl life change: she signs up to become a yoga teacher. BAD YOGI is the 'healing' memoir for people who hate healing memoirs, a delightful peek at the life-changing truth that lies behind all the gurus and jargon.
Alice Williams is an author, freelance writer, yoga teacher and writing tutor.
At nineteen years old she dropped out of university and stayed in a Buddhist Monastery in Nepal, where she was almost recruited for cult, and eventually learned that all beings want happiness - even buttheads and horrible bosses. When Alice returned from Nepal, she finished her degree and worked low level office and hospitality jobs to support her writing. After a quarter life crisis, she became a yoga teacher and is now a freelance writer. Alice lives in Melbourne with her family.
