Review: Where in the OM Am I? by Sara DiVello

Goodreads:  Sara has invested years dutifully climbing the corporate ladder to become head of PR at a major financial services company, but can’t shake the feeling she’s not where she belongs. When her latest boss, a wine-guzzling, drama-loving diva, finally drives her to the brink, Sara seeks sanctuary in yoga-teacher training…only to encounter an entirely different assortment of craziness and calamity. 

Along the way, Sara confronts the harsh reality of working in a male-dominated industry, the challenges of being a corporate interloper in the yoga community, and the complexity of interactions between women in both realms. As epic mishaps beget personal revelations, Sara digs deep for the courage to forge a new life for herself.

Kritters Thoughts:  A memoir that had all the makings of a great fiction story - a woman in her late 20s is trying to figure out what really matters and moment after moment her corporate job is just not working.  At the same time her years of yoga were very amateur and she is prompted to take a next step in her learning and try out a teaching class.  This is where I thought the book would become way too yoga and to over the top for me, but I loved that she had an honest experience with a few highs and some definite lows.  The parallels between the drama in the yoga class and her corporate world made me, who is definitely a happy corporate gal, feel less guilty about not being a yoga gal.

I would definitely recommend this to all sorts of readers, those who are definitely yoga gals, but then those of us who aren't.  It shed new light on how I need to find something or continue to do something that only benefits me that is apart from the other things that I need to do for my family, my job, the house or the dog.   

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
