"My aim is that this book is a dialog and expert guide through the best and worst of yoga.  Many lives have been transformed and changed in their desire to achieve something great through yoga.  In our modern day rural and urban explosion of the popularity of yoga it has become quite a phenomenon in our modern culture today.  Many would like to travel the landscape of the yoga world but are confused and need a chaperone.  Experience speaks volumes and this private tour that you are embarking on is filled with personal accounts of others that have braved the journey before you.  The reader can decide to be either an observer or a participant on this mission.  We will visit places of deep meaning and lands of new pop terrain."- Troy Cox
