Today's guest is Brian Leaf author of the book "Misadventures of a Garden State Yogi: my humble quest fo heal my Colitis, calm my ADD, and Find the key to Happiness.

As a college freshman business major suffering from a variety of anxiety-related maladies, Brian Leaf stumbled into an elective: yoga. It was 1989. All his classmates were female. And men did not yet generally "cry, hug, or do yoga."

But yoga soothed and calmed Leaf as nothing else had. As his hilarious and wise tale shows, leaf embarked on a quest for health and happiness-visiting yoga studios around the country and consulting Ayurvedic physicians, swanis, and even (accidentally) a prostitute.

Twenty-one years later, he teaches yoga and meditation and is the beloved founder of a holistic tutoring center that helps students whose ailments he once shared. Visit www.misadventures-of-a-yogi.com
