Yogi and author Kelli Kristine Hastings presents Rotten Minerva: Be an Unruly Warrior and Embark on a Spiritual Quest. It is part memoir and part spirituality guide that presents recollections of events and circumstances that occurred in the past along with her perspectives, infused with her brand of wit. She believes that humankind is at a crossroads and hopes that her book will inspire you to undertake a transformative spiritual journey. The book is divided into four sections that reflect the four Padas of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. The first section is called Love, which describes her philosophy in life. The second section is Practice, outlining the practical steps she took on her quest for truth and freedom. The third section is Magic, which presents stories of the inexplicable mysteries and enigmas that you might encounter on your path. The fourth section is Freedom, presenting the outcomes of your journey that the author hopes you will resolve to undertake.

Rotten Minerva is a creative and intelligent personal take on one yogi’s experience in practicing yoga. Many people take up yoga for its physical benefits, but Kelly Kristine Hastings shows you that it can benefit you spiritually. As yoga has profound spiritual roots, Hastings shows you that it is not limited to holistic postures as she brings out its deeper objectives. She connects mind, body, and spirit to gain unity, freedom, and peace of mind effectively. Throw in her philosophies and ideas that will make you think and even laugh at times. You are reading about a yogi who believes that it is possible to befriend mosquitoes. This is a book that allows you to look at yoga practice with a spiritual outlook to achieve peace within yourself and the world that you inhabit. It is a must-read for its fascinating blend of life writing, stories, and the practice of yoga geared toward total integration.
