Spirit On The Move: Personal Essays on Yoga in Daily Life

Linda Johnsen (Author)

Mention the word 'Yoga' and most Americans imagine a little young woman leaning so far backward that she can touch the floor behind her with her fingertips." Thus begins Linda Johnsen's introduction to this engaging and often profound book. Unsurprisingly, she goes on to explain that yoga is far, far more than the hatha postures seen by the casual observer. Yoga is a way of life, and its lessons are seemingly without number.

Spirit on the Move is a collection of personal essays, first published in Yoga International magazine, that express the variety of riches found along the path of yoga. Some essays are light and humorous, while others are deeply thoughtful and spiritual. One writer describes how yoga has helped him face his own mortally. Another chronicles her yoga-inspired journey out of "chocolate addiction." Still another confesses her past as a "yoga snob" who saw wealth and authenticity as incompatible.

What will you learn from the first-hand accounts of this diverse group of contributors? Certainly you'll emerge from this book with a newfound appreciation for what yoga really is. But more to the point, you'll gain insights of your own: how what you learn in yoga class translates into your daily interactions with others how to move gracefully and skillfully through all that life brings you and how to never forget the real purpose of your journey here on earth.
