contact yoga, a book review

contact yoga a book by Tara Guber

Touching is Healing. CONTACT YOGA creatively addresses the underlying issue of “relationship” through Partner Yoga. Creator Tara Lynda Guber, together with Deepak Chopra, Tony Robbins, award-winning photographer Norman Seeff, and an impressive list of renowned Yoga Teachers and film personalities, CONTACT YOGA adds a unique layer of relationship through beautiful photographs and clear illustrated instruction of partners engaged in Contact Yoga poses, bringing attention to where connection and intimacy lie physically, emotionally and spiritually.

CONTACT YOGA addresses why we struggle in relationships, and where. In specific, the philosophy focuses on the seven chakras and seven points of contact. To make contact with these centers is to open powerful gates representing the essential bonds of relationship including Trust, Passion, Commitment, Love, Communication, Vision and Union.

Each partner does the same pose at the same time enhancing the awareness with which we see and relate to another person. By stretching in to a Back Bend on top of another person, and holding steady in breath, we  can release deeply held beliefs that ultimately lead to the gift of safety, joy and surrender.

1. 30 interactive yoga videos
2. Introductions by Deepak Chopra & Tony Robbins
