More About the Author

Kimberlee Jensen Stedl founded Punk Rock Yoga® in 2003. Kimberlee first took up yoga in 1997 at the behest of a yoga teacher whose class followed the kickboxing class Kimberlee taught at a Seattle gym. She was instantly humbled and intrigued. Over the years, Kimberlee has tasted numerous flavors of yoga including Iyengar, vinyasa, Viniyoga, Bikram, and kundalini yoga. When she decided to pursue teaching, she achieved her Yoga Alliance 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher credentials through the YogaFit program. During her teacher training she began her study of yoga philosophy. As she continues to work on those principles she realizes she should wear a t-shirt saying, "Caution: evolving soul under construction. Beware of flying debris."

Before Kimberlee was introduced to yoga, she worked as a fitness instructor. She earned her group fitness instructor certification with the American Council on Exercise (ACE) in 1992 and with the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) in 2007. She has also offered fitness instructor continuing education courses accredited by both ACE and AFAA. She offers teacher training in her signature yoga and dance fusion style called Shake Rattle & Pose®. Kimberlee established 8th Element Yoga (www.8thElementYoga.com) in 2007 to support her diverse yoga interests.

Kimberlee has a bachelor's degree in Journalism, which has served her writing endeavors. She has co-authored two yoga books with her husband Todd: Yoga for Scuba Divers and their partner yoga book, Yoga with a Friend. Together, Kimberlee and Todd offer yoga and scuba diving retreats. Of course, their biggest co-creation is their son Ivan, born in 2008--an event which taught Kimberlee the true meaning of radical transformation.

I am a yoga teacher and scuba diver and always practice yoga before diving. I have been telling my dive friends how yoga compliments diving. The authors' knowledge of both yoga and diving are excellent and they bring it all together in this book. Highly recommended!

Knowing little to nothing about yoga or scuba diving....we read this book to learn something new and found the book to give clear, un-complicated instruction and we truly enjoyed the passion and humor of the authors.

This is a great book. scuba and yoga make a great combination. The poses are enjoyable to perform. I especially liked the visualization and breathing exercises.

I scuba dive a lot and started doing yoga recently. The potential usefulness of yoga for diving struck me, and so I bought this book. I can't say that I learned much which I had not learned or couldn't learn just as well or better from other Yoga instruction and publications. I didn't learn anything new about diving.

The book comes across as written by Yoga instructors who took up scuba diving a while ago (reaching the instructor level) and also saw the useful connection. Then they wrote an fairly average Yoga-instruction book and added a few pages about diving. The exercises are mostly pretty standard yoga exercises. There is very little depth to the connection between diving and yoga. Fining uses leg muscles? That was not surprising to me.

Also, I must say, what always makes me suspicious is the over abundance of quotations from famous people to -often- cover up the lack of content in a book. Typically, Einstein and Gandhi are heavily abused for this purpose. You'll find lots of slightly out of context words of wisdom in this book!

I am an avid scuba diver, and I thoroughly enjoy yoga, so I thought this would be a great book. It is! My one complaint in the bind on the book. It would be much better if it was spiral bound, so you can leave it open during your workout. I took my book to Office Max and had this done for about $3, and now it is perfect. I work out with it almost every morning. On my last dive, I noticed I was using significantly less air than normal, and it is a site I visit regularly. I attribute my better air consumption to my yoga workouts from this book.

This is a great book to learn some breathing techniques and become focused prior to doing any scuba diving! Not to mention there are some great yoga poses for those of you that are just into that. Plus it's a very inexpensive book, well worth it!
