Yoga in America is a collection of essays from a variety of yoga teachers across the United States. You won’t find anything from superstars like Rodney Yee, Shiva Rea, or Baron Baptiste here….which is to its strength.
These essays are written by instructors who are in their studios every day, each with their own unique outlook and each with their own style of writing and of yoga. The nice part of this book is that there are as many different types and styles of essays as there are types and styles of yoga. Some essays are inspirational, some will make you smile, others chuckle, while others may leave you nodding your head in commiseration. But all of these essays have one thing in common: each is genuine and speaks to the heart of why we do yoga. Yoga in America explores what yoga has come to mean here in the U.S. of A., both on and off the mat, without getting overly sentimental or hippy-dippy New Agey. This book offers something for anyone with even a marginal interest in yoga, and true to the path of Karma Yoga, a portion of proceeds from the sale of the book goes to supporting the families of fallen firefighters.
