After over ten years in the works, I am proud to announce that my
book is printed and has arrived at my home in Maui, Hawaii.
My Search for Yoga is my memoir. It focusses on the years
between 1970 and 1977, telling my story beginning with my early
fascination with yoga at age 20. That fascination evolved into my
role as a “yoga detective,” searching in Europe, two
overland trips to India, and the early days in the Carolinas,
Florida, California, and Maui.
My book includes many of the crazy stories (and more) that I have
shared in my classes over the years. It highlights the characters who
were a part of my journey and the sometimes-hazardous, often wild
adventures I experienced.
In addition to the stories of those days, my book documents the
Ashtanga Yoga Syllabus as originally taught to me by Pattabhi Jois as
it appeared on the wall of his yoga shala when I arrived in
1973. I later demonstrated this in my complete Ashtanga Yoga Syllabus
poster, which is available on my website: http://www.ashtangayogi.com
My Search for Yoga is a hardbound book measuring 9” x
12.” It is 315 pages, weighs a little over 3 lbs., and has 132
color images that include the following:
90 color images from those early days
15 pages of my original documentation of the Ashtanga Yoga Syllabus
12 letters from Pattabhi Jois (27 pages), written for him by various
Through my story, I hope my book will tell my part in the early
history of how Ashtanga Yoga made its way out of Mysore, India, and
into the lives of millions of practitioners around the world today.
