When you first start practicing yoga, you just have questions about how to arrange yourself in this pose and where your foot goes in that one. After a while—after you get the hang of things—you have deeper questions. Like, is this stuff going to make me enlightened or merely sore tomorrow morning? Is this actually a spiritual path . . . or just a way for my teacher to pay off the mortgage? And speaking of my teacher—was that her, drinking beer at the pub last night? Aren’t yoga teachers supposed to be serious and lead pure lives?
Completely and utterly unenlightened, Ricardo das Neves is the perfect yoga teacher to answer all those questions, plus a few more you'll think of next week. Thoroughly illustrated to keep the interest of even the most distracted audience, Unenlightened proves, once and for all, that yoga and humor can go nicely together and that to dispel a few enduring myths about practicing yoga, or about yoga teachers, all you need to have is a healthy dose of smart-aleck irreverence.
