On Yoga, Michael O’Neill

Our friend Michael O’Neill has photographed Presidents, celebrities, artists and alike over the course of his career for major publications from the New York Times to Rolling Stones Magazine to Vanity Fair.

Over a decade ago he had spinal surgery to repair damage to his neck from years of his trade.  That surgery left him paralyzed in his right arm.  He needed to repair himself.  His curious mind started him on a journey to heal himself through yoga.  The past decade he worked on this book that has now become a reality.  He traveled the world to understand yoga, meet the people behind these practices and in turn heal himself.  He is now physically fit he is spiritually sound.

His beautiful book really gives us a glimpse into a world that is unique, beautiful and spiritual.   So thrilled for Michael that he completed this project.  His deep connection with the people he met on this journey and his passion is recorded in everyone of these pages.  It is really worth getting.

    I agree with @susanrubinsky:disqus this would make a great gift. An observation – It’s interesting that almost everyone featured in the video is male yet in the US yoga classes are 80% female.

      Interesting right? In the book there are about 30% women. Just a gut based on reading it.

    Interesting…so the publisher Taschen puts out a video about Michael and his book as a marketing tool. The videos are great but it doesn’t appear that most of them have much play so they are probably super expensive given what they generate in actual sales.I put a link to their youtube channel but it is showing a Gay Talese video.
