Overview

"The first time I saw Sharmila practicing yoga, I was amazed. Her ability to control her body with awe-inspiring precision was mysterious. Her quiet and powerful concentration makes her slowly evolving, rock solid shapes appear like sculpture. By uniting the rich heritage of dance, martial arts and yoga in an unforeseen way, Sharmila is guiding performance into new territory."--Karole Armitage.

In Indian worship, yantra--a pure geometric diagram--is a tool to stimulate inner visualizations, meditations and experiences. One of the predominant elementary diagrams is the triangle, representing the three-fold process of creation (sristi), preservation (sthithi) and dissolution (samhara). This book is an offering to the creative principle of sristi and follows the practice of the young New York-based inspirational force Sharmila, who has merged the many forms of Indian culture, beginning with Ashtanga yoga, including elements of the martial art Kerala and the classical dance, Bharata Natyam.
