Today’s conversation is with Alison Zak, who recently published her first book, “Wild Asana: Animals, Yoga, and Connecting Our Practice to the Natural World.”
Zak’s unique nature memoir artfully weaves together her personal stories, ecological context, and yoga asana. Her book is a moving and urgent call for us to remember our connection to the natural world. As Zak says, “We’re more alike than different from even the animals that might seem quite different from ourselves, like a scorpion or a fish.” Her book is a moving and urgent call for us to remember our connection to the natural world.
Wild Asana is the next selection for the Yogaland Book Club, which I host on Substack.
I hope you will join us! You can sign up for the book club: yogaland.substack.com and Alison will join us in the club on October 24th.
