Travel writer Elizabeth Gowing is an unlikely yogini. She is too fond of cake and to-do lists, and sometimes falls over her mat.  But yoga has taken her around the country from village halls, where a quivering triangle pose was interrupted by the council recycling collection, to the soaring aerial yoginis of Godalming.   Whether on a National Trust site or a prison, Newcastle or Nottingham,  she discovers ways in which yoga is rebuilding communities and lives –and her own wobbling body. Funny and touching, it’s the story of ancient wisdom solving modern-day problems, as well as the exultation of finally mastering the crow.
