In Strength & Grace, established Ashtanga Yoga practitioners reveal how they have maintained their Ashtanga Yoga practices as they journey into various stages of life. Through the recollections of these exceptional women, we are given a glimpse of how powerful – and healing – the Ashtanga system can be when practiced with wisdom and patience.

This collection of essays provides guidance on how to develop and maintain a regular practice with an awareness – not a rejection – of the unique qualities of a woman’s body. It is through their words that we see the strength and grace that is open to all of us who show up to practice with devotion and an open heart. 

Krista Shirley is featured in over 33 pages of the book as one of the 12 contributing yoginis. Her contributions include her essay 7 Treasures for Ashtanga Practitioners.  In this piece, Krista highlights empowerment as her most influential practice in yoga, "... empowering ourselves to be able to harness the greatest parts of ourselves and be the best women, mothers, sisters, wives, teachers and businesswomen we can possibly be."
