Contact Yoga presents an inspiring new vision of yoga created to deepen your relationships with lovers, friends, family and other intimates in your life. Contact Yoga explores that mysterious and dynamic edge where two people connect: physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Tara Lynda Guber and Anodea Judith offer valuable insight into the dynamics of all loving relationships, using poses designed for two participants that bridge the “Seven Points of Contact.” Contact Yoga brings these seven points (trust, passion, commitment, love, communication, vision, and union) into focus as points on the body, training patterns of connecting and distancing, loving and protecting, giving and receiving to be revealed at their deepest levels. Contact Yoga will appeal to all who seek depth and fulfillment in their relationships. Contact Yoga also features over one hundred striking tri-tone photographs by award-winning photographer, filmmaker, and director Norman Seeff. His vivid images capture candid portraits of renowned yoga teachers such as Patricia Walden, Anna Forest, and Shiva Rae, as well as celebrities in dynamic yoga poses including Cheryl Tiegs, Carrie Otis, Daphne Zuniga, Catherine Oxenberg, Linda Grey, Elizabeth Berkley, Harry Hamlin, and Lisa Rinna.
