Yoga, the state of wholeness, resides within us and without us.
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.
