YOGA: The Secret of Life by Francesco Mastalia

"Part of living is searching for meaning and trusting the mystery that we don’t know. We are here to find that meaning. The not knowing motivates us to seek, and it is in the seeking that we get connected to devotional disciplines like yoga. Embedded within the beautiful and powerful texture of yoga, knowledge exists below the surface and it holds secrets and mysteries. It is what makes us search for a true teacher and find a method that can bring us closer to meaning, to the truth, to kindness and goodness." Sharmila Desai from YOGA The Secret of Life

YOGA The Secret of Life by Francesco Mastalia explores the personal experiences of 108 of today’s leading practitioners and how this ancient practice has transformed their mind, body, and spirit. Why are we here? What is our ultimate purpose on this planet? What began as a photographic journey to explore the physical practice of yoga, unexpectedly transformed into an enlightening odyssey that revealed answers to these mystifying questions. The book published by powerHouse Books is available through booksellers worldwide.
