Summary
Yoga: The Art of Transformation is the companion book to the first ever exhibition of the visual history of yoga, a discipline that is thousands of years old and practiced today by millions of people. Like the Smithsonian's Sackler Gallery exhibit, this large pictorial uses a wealth of materials from ancient stone and bronze temple sculptures to early 20th century photographs to illuminate yoga's central tenets and its still partly un-delineated traditions. Explore the discipline's goals of spiritual enlightenment, worldly power, and health and well-being through the beauty and profundity of Indian art
