A blend of straight talk, humor, and clear steps for action to help change-seekers reset their priorities, drown out the naysaying voices in their heads, and make bold choices.

We all feel stuck sometimes: in our jobs, our relationships, our habits, or when the life we’re living simply doesn’t add up to the one we want. We feel stuck when it seems like we don’t have options, or when we don’t trust or allow ourselves to make the changes we so deeply long to make.

Speaker and yoga teacher Becky Vollmer believes that, when we feel paralyzed by our fears, the answer isn’t just courage―it’s choice. Because we all have choices, we just have to be brave enough to make them.

You Are Not Stuck is the key to breaking the cycle of fear and making bold choices for real change. Sometimes this transformation looks like an audacious Thelma and Louise-style leap; more often, though, it is a series of small, deliberate actions based on personal values that yield more clarity, alignment, and, ultimately, long-term contentment than driving off a cliff.

If what you seek is a tried-and-true process of empowerment that unlocks the true north already inside you, look no further. This book is a unique blend of permission and spirituality that will help you excavate your divine inner badass, close the gap between intention and action, and develop a strategic path forward that’s as unique as your thumbprint.

Through warm and straightforward wisdom, a modern and approachable take on ancient yoga philosophy, a series of practical and insightful grounding exercises, and a healthy dose of laugh-out-loud humor, you’ll learn how to make soul-guided choices in support of the life you’ve desired all along.

"Becky Vollmer has written a brave and deeply wise wake-up call-to-empowerment that will change the lives of every person who picks it up. In a warm, often uproarious voice reminiscent of Anne Lamott, You Are Not Stuck is the book we need right now to guide us through the psychic quicksand that keeps us from moving forward in our lives and fulfilling our potential. I loved it, I learned from it, and I'm passing it on to everyone I know."
―Elissa Altman, author of Motherland

―Dr. Rebecca Ray, clinical psychologist and author

"This isn’t just another self-help read, filled with the same listicle of pseudo-empowerment tips to manifest your own destiny. You Are Not Stuck is a conversation with friend; a friend who encourages you to evaluate your own priorities, and understand that there is nothing wrong with where you are on your path. Honest, empowering, and freeing. A must-read!"
―Emily Paulson, author of Highlight Real
