Inspired Lives

(Discontinued)

Inspired Lives Yoga Book
Inspired Lives is by and about people who are living their yoga in many surprising, provocative and inspiring ways. Drawn from the best articles and interviews that have appeared in Ascent Magazine, this book gives inspiration for taking your yoga off the mat and into the world. Yoga luminaries you will find in it's pages include Georg Feuerstein, Geeta Iyengar, Kausthub Desikachar and Arundhati Roy. The real power of this book though is in the interviews with and stories by lesser known people like Tenzin Palmo, who is dedicated to building a controversial lineage of female buddhist monks, Reverend Ruth Wright who spends her days ministering to the impoverished people of downtown, eastside Vancouver and Marguerite McFee who is trying to stay conscious as she faces the rigors and fears attendant on having ovarian cancer. Each of these stories is a sharp reality check. They equally inform, challenge and inspire like any yoga worth doing really does.
     The book has 28 of these stories in 3 sections, Encounters with Community, Encounters with Others and Encounters with Self. It will certainly deepen your understanding of the word yoga and broaden your perspective on what people are really able to do off the mat.

Praise for Inspired Lives:
B.K.S. Iyengar - "In Inspired Lives, the experiences of the many distinguished contributors will stir readers to use their bodies, minds and selves in service to others, with love and dedication."
John Friend - "Inspired Lives examines divine qualities such as compassion, beauty, and simplicity in the midst of real life suffering. These stories fanned the flame of my desire to be more socially active, more present in my daily life, and to embody heart-centered understanding."

This Trade Paperback book has 284 pages with many photos and illustrations in black and white.
The price is: $26.00
