From cell phone users in yoga classes to Zoom yoga participants sneaking wine and cheese off camera to those folks who just can't help peeking during meditation sessions, The Lighter Side of Yoga presents the humorous and offbeat aspects of yoga through Mike Nevitt’s satiric comics.
The many true-to-life situations in the book are based on Nevitt's experiences and observations over a 30-year period as a full-time yoga and meditation teacher. Aside from providing good laughs, Nevitt aims to gently poke those teachers and students who might have a tendency to take themselves and the practice of yoga a little too seriously.
Yoga and mindfulness practitioners will smile knowingly as they recognize the all-too-familiar scenarios which Nevitt skewers throughout the book. So settle into your favorite yoga pose and let The Lighter Side of Yoga get your chakras spinning!

“There’s no one better qualified to break the myth that yoga is dull or devoid of laughs.”—OM Yoga Magazine
“You’ll find yourself chuckling and nodding in agreement as you read over a hundred strips. I found myself considering removing individual pages of the book just to frame and hang on my wall.”—The Magical Buffet
“There are giggles galore from page to page. . . . Yoga and mindfulness practitioners will smile knowingly as they recognize the all-too-familiar scenarios which Nevitt skewers throughout the book.”—Sandbox World

Who knew yoga was funny? Funny, heck, hilarious, in fact. This book is full of very, very funny cartoons dealing with yoga and enlightenment and Eastern wisdom and, really, the fact that we are all humans, with our foibles and our egos and our intestinal gas and our relationship with gongs. This is an excellent, very enjoyable book and is ideal for anyone, like me, who enjoys cartoons and humor. I don't do yoga, but I grew up reading Alan Watts, so I am wise and you know what you do when a wise man speaks? You listen. Buy and read and laugh and don't forget to constrict your anus!
Thank you for the E Arc NetGalley and Santa Monica Press. If you have ever been to a yoga class or have practiced yoga this book is a gem. The illustrations are adorable and this is a quick and fun read. I especially liked page 122 (psst… someone should make this happen ASAP). Loved all the things!
