Review of Head Over Heels: A Yogi’s Guide to Dating


Rachel Scott’s Head Over Heels: A Yogi’s Guide to DatingA Cheeky, Mindblowing Roadmap to Relationships is a refreshing take on the popular yogi-advice books flooding the market. Combining dating advice with yogic wisdom, Rachel brings a new take on the messy world of dating. Her refreshing honesty throughout the book keeps you engaged as you laugh (or cringe) over some of the wild dating mishaps Rachel has experienced. It is a raw, unfiltered view of the reality of dating. Which, let’s face it, is rarely the storybook romance we see on television.

Rachel Scott is the director of Teachers’ College and Development for YYoga and successful yoga teacher and business woman. She knows the yoga world inside and out. She is no stranger to the dating world either. Rachel says it best in A Yogi’s Guide to Dating when she states,

“For the last twenty years, I have captained a tiny ship called, “Finding The One” and sailed it beyond the known territory to the place labelled, “Here Be Dragons.”’

In this book, Rachel takes everything she has learned from years in both the dating and yoga worlds to provide a refreshing approach to mending your own relationship to romance.

Through her own experience with dating, Rachel guides us through the minefields, helping us see the dating world in a new light. She uses her impressive training in yogic philosophy to shape familiar dating scenarios that we can all relate to in a brand-new light. Each chapter has bits of yogic wisdom interspersed with her own relationship wisdom to help the reader approach dating in a more present, authentic way.

Head Over Heels: A Yogi’s Guide to Dating is the perfect book if you are looking for a little laugher, a little guidance, and a whole new approach to dating. It’s a light, easy read and on top of that, Rachel only recommends reading a chapter a week. But the chapters are dense with advice and tools to help you re-shape your relationship to dating. Each chapter features a set of practices to help you truly embody Rachel’s lessons, taking what you learn off the page and into your life.

Whether it is a small yoga sequence to encourage self-love, a meditation practice to help you nourish your senses, or a dating practice to help you cope with rejection, this book is stuffed full of tangible tactics you can use in your every day life.

A combination of self-help, dating advice, yoga philosophy, and memoir, this book will both keep you engaged and give you concrete tools you can implement in your daily life. Head Over Heels: A Yogi’s Guide to Dating by Rachel Scott is the perfect read for anyone looking to change their relationship to dating and approach romance in a more mindful, yogic way.
