Andrea Marcum's Close to Om is a beautifully illustrated, practical and philosophical, yoga book that promotes and teaches mindfulness in both your yoga practice and your everyday life. Before Marcum was a sought after celebrity yoga teacher, she was someone who thought she couldn't do yoga because she couldn't be still. Now after sixteen years of teaching yoga, she works with network executives, global brands, Hollywood actresses, and everyone in between. Yoga is the yoke of body, mind, and spirit, and in Close to Om , Marcum offers a guide to teach all three aspects of yoga showcasing Marcum's signature unique style, this program combines the teaching of poses with the exploration of yoga philosophy and insight into meditation and mindfulness. By the end of Close to Om , readers will not only know a lot about yoga and its poses, but they'll also know more about themselves: who they are, what they want, and how to get there--on and off their mat. The progression in Close to Om is the architecture of every yoga practice--and will show readers that how they do their yoga is how they do their life.
