Yoga Fan Shares Enthusiasm in New Book That Serves as Memoir, Inspiration and Showcases How Yoga Changed One Woman's Life – Vibrant Photos Included

You never know what she’s going to say next. With her self-deprecating humor, pop culture references and overzealous love for yoga, “Yoga Fan Girl” tells the story of one woman’s journey through her personal practice of yoga. The author combines her love of performing and humor with yoga poses to create a unique take on exercise with a new book released by Dog Ear Publishing.

Pacific Palisades, CA, August 17, 2015 –(– People come in all shapes and sizes, but all bodies need to be stretched, and yoga can help. That’s the bottom line of Leonora Scelfo’s new book, released by Dog Ear Publishing. The book shares the story of one woman’s journey through her personal practice of yoga, told from the perspectives of both herself as a 20-something to who she is now at 41. This self-proclaimed “Number 1 fan of yoga” hopes everyone from beginners to experienced practitioners will gain insights, have a few laughs and be inspired to take a yoga class.

It’s clear from the start that Scelfo embraces humor and pop culture references to make her points. She includes descriptions and photos of such things as the Linda Blaire Pose, Saturday Night Fever Pose, Julia Roberts Yoga Butt, Marc Jacobs Pose and the Charlie Brown Pose. Injecting humor into her yoga practice does not lessen its effectiveness. The blonde beauty writes that she began yoga simply to improve her appearance – wanting to look good – not realizing it would also make her feel good. She expresses her resulting inner light and sexiness with sexy, fun and silly yoga pictures.

“Yoga Fan Girl” is a fast read offering a brief introduction to each style of yoga but focuses on the author’s favorite poses, ones she’s come to know in her 15 years of practicing yoga. Scelfo also touches on nutrition and mental health, urging all people who want a more fulfilling, healthy life to explore the practice for themselves. As she writes, “You will be inspired to either try yoga or try touching your toes. You live in your body– not your house. Do you want to live in a beat up old Pontiac…or a Porsche?” With her easy conversational tone, YFG promises to be a funny and thoughtful yoga memoir.

This is the first book for author Leonora Scelfo, born and raised in Pacific Palisades, Calif. She was seen in the first “Scream” movie and was a guest co-host for Jon Stewart’s MTV talk show in the 1990s. She loves spicy tuna hand rolls with avocado, Marc Jacobs, Nora Ephron, Albert Brooks, Groucho Marx, Garry Shandling and Howard Stern; she’s basically an old Jewish lady in her late 70s, maybe early 80s.
