“Carrie Schneider, a yoga teacher herself, interviews twenty-two American yoga masters about their lives, careers, and featured postures. The teachers’ sensibilities come alive both in Schneider's text and in the telling visual history provided by rare historical photos. American Yoga is at once authoritative, useful, and beautiful.” —Yoga Journal Read full review here
“Although American Yoga is a beautiful book for your coffee (tea?) table, it’s much more. By reading the stories of these dedicated yoga masters, we become inspired in our own journeys. We discover new approaches to yoga and learn about the traditions, lineages, and history of yoga as it found its way to the U.S. As varied as the styles may be, the goal is the same—to realize we are more than the body and mind, to know our true nature and to grow in consciousness.” —Yoga Chicago

"A visceral journey into the state of yoga." —Boulder Times
Yoga, the state of wholeness, resides within us and without us. It deepens with our participation. And the practice of yoga is in no way confined to the borders of the mat. By studying a typical yoga practice with an eye toward each posture or asana's inspiration - and what it inspires in us - Yoga Within offers seasoned practitioners and novices alike something entirely new in the marketplace: a visceral journey into the state of yoga. Twenty-five beautifully photographed asanas are delineated by teachings from yoga's starkly modern ancient texts to shed new light on this 5,000-year-old discipline. An estimated 20 million women and men in the United States consider themselves practitioners. This practical, spiritual guide to yoga, and celebration of its sheer power and grace, makes clear why.
