Effort and Surrender : The Art of Wisdom and Yoga
Yoga how-to books abound, a direct reflection of the rapidly expanding popularity of this ancient practice. Effort and Surrender: The Art and Wisdom of Yoga does not show how to do yoga. Instead, it tells-through illustrations and quotations-how to feel what yoga is and what it means to experience mind and body movements as a life enhancer and as a way of life.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. Eric's sepia-rich photographs of 37 classic asanas intertwined with vibrant and sweeping ink lines give the postures an energy of their own. Equally moving are the collection of historical and modern yoga quotes, such as these: Yoga is the music of the soul. So do continue and the gates of the soul will open. -B. K. S. Iyengar In this very breath that we take now lies the secret that all great teachers try to tell us. -Peter MatthiessenYoga is a way of moving into stillness in order to experience the truth of who you are. -Erich SchiffmannEffort and Surrender is a very rich experience indeed.
