Life’s Not Yoga

Born into the perfect family, by 16, Jacqui Burnett wants to kill her father. With his gun.

Decades later, in her early 40’s, Jacqui believes she had left her turbulent past and the trauma of eight near-death experiences behind her. On the surface, she has everything she’s ever dreamed of – an education, success and a wonderful husband. What Jacqui doesn’t know is that she’s about to lose everything.

“I was about to step into a board meeting but instead I slid from my office chair and cowered under my desk, sobbing. As managing director, I was meant to announce a year of outstanding results; instead, I was paralysed”

In a desperate search for answers, Jacqui travels to America. Alone in the Rocky Mountains, her life starts unravelling and the truth of her chaotic childhood begins to emerge.

In her confused attempts to find love and meaning, Jacqui has to face death one more time, along with an avalanche of unexpected obstacles, before rising form the ashes to heal.


“Its Jacqui’s engaging frank voice and fierce self-enquiry that drives this fast-paced gripping tale though all its spirited twists and turns” Nina Geraghty

“On one level, this is a tale of looking for love in all the wrong places, but on a deeper level, it’s a story of how adversity, viewed trough the lens of insight and wisdom, leads to hope and redemption. It’s a tumultuous, terrifying, frustrating journey, as Jacqui struggles to uncover the heroine within. The miracle is that she comes out of the other side alive – and willing to use her life story to inspire others to survive and flourish. Giles Griffin
