Like many people - even liberals, even in Western Washington - Claire Dederer was a yoga skeptic.

But when she threw her back out nursing her baby daughter, Dederer decided to give it a try, despite what she calls a "longtime policy of never entering a structure adorned with Tibetan prayer flags."

After a less-than-graceful start, Dederer, of Bainbridge Island, found in yoga something she hadn't even know she was seeking.

Now she's not only a yoga person, she's the author of a book about yoga, Poser: My Life in 23 Yoga Poses, which was released in December and has been greeted with a flurry of praise.

Read the full story here.
