Make Your Own Rules Diet
In Make Your Own Rules Diet, Tara Stiles introduces readers to easy and fun ways to bring yoga, meditation, and healthy food into their lives. As the designer and face of Reebok’s first yoga lifestyle line, author of Yoga Cures and Slim, Calm, Sexy Yoga, and the founder of Strala—the movement-based system that ignites freedom, known for its laid-back and unpretentious vibe—Tara has long been a proponent of creating a tension-free healthy life by tapping into the unique needs of her clients. In this new book, she teaches readers how to apply this inward-looking philosophy to themselves.
When people understand what they need for true well-being, they can make their own rules—rules that will help them become their best selves. In her rulebook, it’s no pain, much gain. In fact, Tara stresses the importance of practicing with ease—leaving the discomfort and tension behind—because what you practice is what you manifest. Readers will not only learn to create their own rules but also to understand when something isn’t working anymore, so they can update their rules as circumstances change.
Her approach takes readers from the kitchen, to the mat, to the cushion, in an effort to help them get to know themselves. After leading them through some basic guidelines about how to write their rulebooks, Tara lays out tips, techniques, and practices, including:
· A step-by-step goal setting process so readers can figure out where they want to focus
· Six yoga routines specifically designed to up energy levels, curb cravings, drop pounds, and enhance peace
· Eight breathing and meditation practices to soothe the soul
· 50 simple, delicious, plant-based recipes that can be made in minutes
· A 7-day kick-start program and a 30-day transformation plan to launch readers on their healthy, happy, radiant path
So join Tara today as she opens readers’ eyes to a new way of living well that anyone can do—no matter where they are now.

“The key to true wellness, many of us are finding, is so very much about finding your own way. With so many competing messages bombarding us, this can be nigh impossible to do and many of us have simply lost our wellness mojo. Tara’s approach, however, shows how real, lasting wellness is about being gentle and kind, shifting with ease, and creating space (my mantra for my own wellness is all about creating space—in my schedule and also at a cellular level). Make Your Own Rules Diet is a genuine handbook for a real wellness shift.”
—SARAH WILSON, New York Times best-selling author of I Quit Sugar

Tara has taught me to embrace my imperfections, love all of me, and embrace all that makes me happy. More important, she’s taught me life is a journey, not a race; slow down and go at your own pace. It’s okay.”
