Summary

Summary

Yoga, the state of wholeness, resides within us and without us. It deepens with our participation. And the practice of yoga is in no way confined to the borders of the mat. The physical aspect of this mindful attunement is a discipline Americans are embracing with increasing gusto. By studying a typical yoga practice with an eye toward each posture or asana's inspiration - and what it inspires in us - Yoga Within offers seasoned practitioners and novices alike something entirely new in the marketplace: a visceral journey into the state of yoga. Twenty-five beautifully photographed asanas are delineated by teachings from yoga's starkly modern ancient texts (including the Bhagavad Gita and Yoga Sutra) and evocative still lifes - a dish of stones, a mountain of sand, a bonsai tree - to shed new light on this 5,000-year-old discipline. This book serves as a practical and spiritual guide to yoga, as well as a celebration of its sheer power and grace. The number of women and men in the United States who practice yoga has doubled over the last four years to reach an estimated 18 million, comprising a calm, strong force amid the nation's health and fitness craze.Yoga Within, a singular addition to a burgeoning market, makes clear why.
