Yoga. Presented by Yoga Journal.
A Yoga Journal Book. Extraordinary photography by David Martinez.
Yoga. is a book by Linda Sparrowe with extraordinary photography by David Martinez.
400 poses, or asanas, illustrated by artful black-and-white photographs taken especially for this yoga book, demonstrate the physical postures derived from an ancient Indian tradition. Included are brief introductions to the twentieth-century yoga practitioners who were influential in making yoga a Western, and indeed a worldwide, phenomena. A fantastic addition to any yoga practitioners library.
With dozens of stunning foldouts, this yoga book beautifully explores a wide range of yoga with an emphasis on how it touches more than the physical body; the flexibility and stamina achieved on the yoga mat will doubtless transcend to more important aspects of everyday life.
Linda Sparrowe’s introduction traces the evolution of yoga, rooted in the devotional and metaphysical teachings of the sacred yoga texts including the Vedas, Upanishads, and the Bhagavad-Gita, and progressing to an in-depth look at the philosophy of Patanjali, the father of modern yoga.
