Namaste 2.0
Balanced Practice ... Balanced Life
by Dane A. Vemb

Lifelong athlete and sport enthusiast Dane Vemb loves nothing better than finding the back of the net with a puck or pounding over hills on his mountain bike, but one day, he wanders into a Bikram yoga studio. By the time he leaves the hot room, sweat soaked and inspired, he’s completely hooked and determined to master this new “sport.” Unlike most aspiring yogis, though, Dane’s not averse to a can of Red Bull or a puff of weed to enhance his spiritual and physical endeavours. Now and then, he even goes off to Peru on a quest to explore the visionary properties of ayahuasca. Early in his dedicated at-home and in-studio yoga practice, Dane comes to realize his 26 posture sequence has plateaued and sets out on a pursuit for answers to better depth in each of the postures. After a decade, he is given the intel from a ‘yoga whisperer,’ and with the same energy he uses to hustle his way down the ice playing hockey, Dane develops a balanced and much-improved practice. In this hilarious and insightful part memoir/ part-yoga manual, he wittily chronicles his physical and emotional journey into thriving rather than merely surviving. In a series of beautiful photos of his daughter Stephanie demonstrating yin postures and before-and-after shots of Dane measuring the gains in his own practice, readers are provided with a practical, step-by-step guide to a better yoga practice. But more importantly, they are gifted a blueprint for a happier, more creative, and fulfilled life. And they’ll be laughing every step of the way.

"Part memoir, part manifesto, and part charismatic guide, Dane A. Vemb’s Namaste 2.0 is a maverick take on practicing yoga and achieving personal health and satisfaction." - Foreword Clarion Reviews "In Namaste 2.0, Dane not only provides us with comprehensive instructions on how to carry out a mindful yoga practice, but also takes us on a journey that encompasses his remarkable life experiences, thus giving us a glimpse into why his particular path led to an awakening that can be felt in each page of this informative, insightful and beautifully vulnerable memoir. Dive in. It may just give you the impetus needed to begin your own inspired yoga-life exploration." - Paul McQuillan, Bikram Studio Owner/Instructor and Author of I Hate Yoga and Why You'll Hate to Love it Too

Dane Vemb cheerfully subscribes to the ideals of the wheel of life: learn, teach, peer, create, and Namaste 2.0 is the product of his decade-long pursuit of yogic wisdom. Along the way, he has not only found physical and emotional health and enlightenment, but he has found his best and happiest self, and he hopes to pass this process onto others.
