The final Holiday Giveaway on Om Shanti is a copy of Hell-Bent: Obsession, Pain, and the Search for Something Like Transcendence in Competitive Yoga, by Benjamin Lorr. I reviewed this book recently, and am pretty certain that anyone who does yoga will find it utterly fascinating. The book focuses on Bikram Yoga, but the trials and tribulations of the author will resonate with practitioners of all yoga traditions.
The theme of this week’s drawing is inspired, in part, by Mr. Lorr’s journey:
Are you competitive in your yoga practice, either with yourself or others?
