Punk Rock Yoga Manifesto: Look, Work, Accept, Transcend
Seven years after launching Punk Rock Yoga, Kimberlee Jensen Stedl has written and self-published the manifesto–detailing the philosophy behind the movement.
Punk Rock Yoga Manifesto: Look, Work, Accept, Transcend. The Punk Rock Yoga style was born in 2003 and has flowed across North America and into Europe. This book articulates the style’s philosophy, where you will explore the teachings of yoga through a modern lens and discover how to employ its wisdom in your daily life. You will learn about Yoga with a capital “Y”—moving beyond the poses, into the realm of personal transformation. The Punk Rock Yoga Manifesto takes a direct and pragmatic approach to yoga philosophy, discussing behavioral guidelines, personal temperaments, meditation practices, energy centers, and the role of poses and breath work. This book inspires self-reflection and challenges you to look at, work on, accept, and ultimately transcend everything that restrains you from personal evolution.
From the Foreward
“This book will tell you what Punk Rock Yoga is all about. It’s clear and easily understandable. If you read this book, you will know what you need to do to get on the yoga train, and ride it to your desired destination, whether you want to get physically stronger, or become “one with everything.” (What did the yogi say at the hot dog stand? Make me one with everything.) You’ll come away knowing the real meaning of yoga, and you’ll be able to discuss it with anyone who asks. It’s broken down and discussed in a clear-headed, logical manner. The book should be required reading for yoga teachers, in my opinion. This book is simple, profound, and a lot of fun to read.”

“A wonderful, simple view that brought my thoughts and interpretations of yoga to paper. I love knowing that I am not the only one that feels this way”
“Kimberlee Jensen Stedl is a yoga teacher that has inspired me to be myself as a teacher! I am loving her new book- a much needed & appreciated look at Yoga as a whole and not just another posture book. I love the real world examples she brings! I’ve always loved her DiY (Do it Yourself) ethic as it pertains to Yoga and… I think she just may inspire you too… ps- Kimberlee, hell yes! xo”
