Natural beauty abounds in George Fischer's newest book in which he partnered with his friend and long-time devoted yogini Lori Myles-Carullo. A lifetime love affair with the art of movement and her introduction to yoga 25 years ago revealed the principle importance of making one's body feel good from the inside. After becoming friends with George Fischer they had the idea to create a book to share her passion and knowledge.
The goal of yoga has always been both discipline and liberation. Those who practice learn mindfulness, peace, and health. The mind, body, and spirit are each trained and strengthened as an integrated cycle. Yoga: True Nature promotes and inspires the yogi at any level to unify their inner and outer self. Renewing postures in breathtaking locations around the Îles de la Madeleine come alongside stimulating words and compelling quotes to further the yogi's journey towards a marriage of each part of themselves.
George Fischer's stunning photographs from around the Îles de la Madeleine fill each page with the peaceful colours of unspoiled natural spaces. His artistic lens expresses the primordial landscapes in dynamic new ways that showcase the graceful power of each pose among raw scenic beauty.
