When the woman who would become Indra Devi was born in Russia in 1899, yoga was virtually unknown outside of India. By the time of her death, in 2002, it was being practiced everywhere, from Brooklyn to Berlin to Ulaanbaatar. In The Goddess Pose, New York Times best-selling author Michelle Goldberg traces the life of the incredible woman who brought yoga to the West and in so doing paints a sweeping picture of the twentieth century. Born into the minor aristocracy (as Eugenia Peterson), Devi grew up in the midst of one of the most turbulent times in human history. Forced to flee the Russian Revolution as a teenager, she joined a famous Berlin cabaret troupe, dove into the vibrant prewar spiritualist movement, and, at a time when it was nearly unthinkable for a young European woman to travel alone, followed the charismatic Theosophical leader Jiddu Krishnamurti to India. Once on the subcontinent, she performed in Indian silent cinema and hobnobbed with the leaders of the independence movement. But her greatest coup was convincing a recalcitrant master yogi to train her in the secrets of his art. Devi would go on to share what she learned with people around the world, teaching in Shanghai during World War II, then in Hollywood, where her students included Gloria Swanson and Greta Garbo. She ran a yoga school in Mexico during the height of the counterculture, served as spiritual adviser to the colonel who tried to overthrow Panamanian strongman Manuel Noriega, and, in her eighties, moved to Buenos Aires at the invitation of a besotted rock star. Everywhere she went, Indra Devi evangelized for yoga, ushering in a global craze that continues unabated. Written with vivid clarity, The Goddess Pose brings her remarkable story as an actress, yogi, and globetrotting adventuress to life.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Eugenia’s mother, Devi, was a Russian aristocrat who was constantly on the move. She was never tied to a place or a religion, and she taught Eugenia the importance of independence and pursuing your passion. #2 When Eugenia’s mother disappeared, that was agonizing. Sasha had always dreamed of becoming an actress, but her father found the idea of his daughter onstage intolerable. In aristocratic circles, acting was considered a thoroughly disreputable profession. #3 Eugenia’s mother, Sasha, was a stage actress, and she was always trying to imitate her. She loved school, and most subjects came easily to her except for math. She was a bit of a brat, impatient when forced to wait for her servants to clean or iron her clothes. #4 Eugenia’s world began to fall apart as she entered adolescence. Her grandfather had a stroke and died when she was twelve, and the constant anxiety that plagued her intensified. She loved to stand by her mother’s side at the piano in their family’s salon, luxuriating in the timbre of her mother’s voice.

Een inspirerend verhaal van een wereldwijd icoon, nu met exclusief nawoord voor de Nederlandse editie 'Het is een lofzang op de eerste zwarte vrouw in het Witte Huis.' – De Telegraaf Met kundige verslaggeving, een boeiende vertelwijze en oog voor detail volgt Peter Slevin Michelle Obama; van haar jeugd in de gesegregeerde South Side van Chicago tot haar rol als First Lady in het Witte Huis. Hij gaat in op haar beproevingen aan de Princeton Universiteit en Harvard Law School tijdens de op racistisch gebied bewogen jaren tachtig. Ook de dilemma’s waar zij voor stond, terwijl zij in Chicago hard aan haar carrière werkte, een gezin grootbracht én haar man hielp om president van de Verenigde Staten te worden, komen aan bod. Van de lessen die ze leerde in Chicago tot het gedachtegoed die zij uitdraagt als een van de meest bewonderde vrouwen ter wereld: Michelle Obama is een verfrissende en meeslepende vertelling van een bijzondere, krachtige vrouw. Peter Slevin heeft tijdens zijn journalistieke carrière uitgebreid geschreven over Barack en Michelle Obama, en over de politieke campagnes en beleidsdebatten in Amerika. Hij heeft tien jaar gewerkt voor The Washington Post en werkt momenteel als professor aan de Medill School of Journalism van de Northwestern University. Zijn biografie Michelle Obama werd genomineerd voor de PEN/Jacqueline Bograd Weld Award for Biography en stond in de Booklist’s Top Ten Biographies of 2015. 'Een must-read... Een belangrijke biografie... Slevin behandelt de first lady en haar prestaties met oog voor detail en de nuance die het verdient.' – Elle Magazine
