Effort and Surrender Book Description :

Yoga how-to books abound, a direct reflection of the rapidly expanding popularity of this ancient practice. Effort and Surrender does not show how to "do" yoga.

This beautiful celebration of yoga's artistry and insight makes a one-of-a-kind gift book. Talented editor and photographer Eric Dinyer, a dedicated yoga practitioner himself, used his own experience and deep understanding to convey yoga's challenges and far-reaching possibilities.

The Little Red Book of Yoga Wisdom Book Description :

In Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism, the word yoga means “spiritual discipline.” Modern yoga is thought of mainly in the context of its postures, but the actual meaning of yoga goes much deeper than that. Though its exact history is unknown, the first recorded instance appears in ancient Shamanism, a religion that involved healing its community members, among other functions. Throughout history, yoga has developed and adapted depending on its practicing members. While its original focus was applying and understanding the world, its focus was later changed to the self, with self-enlightenment being the ultimate goal. Later, the poses and meditation became critical elements in practicing yoga, a development introduced by Buddhist teachings. Yoga has...
