This is the story of Yoga in America, as told by 46 ardent teachers and devotees from every part of the Yoga spectrum. 46 unique and compelling essays on what Yoga is in America representing the major yoga traditions, Bikram, Kundalini, Ashtanga, Kripalu, Iyengar and some that are much less widely known.

The 46 writers assembled in this book show both the great diversity of Yoga and its unifying principles as it has been carried forward in America.

The call for yoga writers went out to the yoga community in late 2008.  Over 300 yoga teachers submitted contributions to be included in the book, of which 46 diverse, well-written pieces were selected. 
 
You may already be familiar with some of the writers; but  if you're not, you'll likely be hearing more from them in the near future. 
 
Each author presents a unique and insightful presentation of what yoga in America means to them in this exciting compilation of American yoga teachers.

So dive in to any page and you will find a story or musing that offers you wisdom, profound inspiration, and perhaps even a touch of enlightenment.

Here is a sample of some of the fascinating and fun chapter titles:

  • "Hot Yoga in America-Roots and Offshoots"

  • "Skip the Middle Man and Go Directly to Bliss!"

  • "How Yoga Saved My Life"

  • "Firm Buttocks or Self-Realization?"

  • "How Patanjali Comes Alive in My Classes and My Life"

Released on February 14, 2009, a portion of proceeds from this book supports the families of fallen firefighters.
