Product Details


Wild Asana is inviting, imaginative, and restoring, reestablishing our ancient connection with all of life in an original, welcoming, freeing way. A great way to celebrate and honor our bodies and our world!”
—Sy Montgomery, author of How to Be a Good Creature

“With every page, I felt Wild Asana attuning me to the living connection between the yoga postures I love, the animals they honor, and the heart of humanity. In her paean to the interdependence of the human spirit and the natural world, Alison Zak flows effortlessly between science, poetry, myth, and memoir—reminding us that true yogis are both naturalists and mystics.”
—Anne Cushman, author of The Mama Sutra and Moving into Meditation

“Equal parts scientific, scholarly, and spiritual, Wild Asana brings us closer to both our divine and animal natures, lovingly detailing their interdependence, and the ways in which the ancient art of yoga intertwines with our humanity.”
—Sarah C. Beasley, award-winning author of Kindness for All Creatures

Wild Asana teaches us how to live and learn from and with each other in order to bring about balance both within and without…. Combining insightful stories and practical methods, this book is perfect for beginners and experienced yoginis alike.”
—Cassie Premo Steele, PhD, author of Earth Joy Writing

a song for the spirit…told in a way that makes yoga and deep connection accessible for all of us. The world needs this book now.”
—Beth Allgood, president of OneNature

“…unique and thoughtful…Alison Zak muses beautifully on the connections between humans, animals, and the planet—all through the lens of yoga…. a worthy addition to any thinker’s library.”
—Sage Rountree, PhD, E-RYT 500, author of Everyday Yoga

“[A] beautiful invitation to seek the wisdom and the power that our ‘more-than-human’ relatives have to share and own what is truly Yoga.”
—Micah Mortali, author of Rewilding

“As a naturalist and wildlife conservationist who’s always been curious about yoga, Zak’s book offered me the perfect entry point to delve into the practice through my love of animals and commitment to conservation.”
—David Mizejewski, naturalist and TV host, National Wildlife Federation

“Mix one part lore, one part science, a draught of personal essay, and a dash of yoga, then stir in a bit of mysticism. The result is Wild Asana, a delightful concoction that will help you breathe into the magic and mystery of the natural world.”
—Maia Toll, award-winning author of the Wild Wisdom series

a deeply compassionate and playful exploration of how we are still animal and connected to other species in the animal kingdom through asana and nature…. Beautifully written and thoughtfully designed, this book is a warm and bright companion on the journey back to your wild nature.”
—Eila Kundrie Carrico, author of The Other Side of the River

“Zak elegantly weaves together personal experience and reflection and scientific research to illustrate how yoga constitutes a pathway through which we can realize our connections with other animals, or ‘beyond-human beings.'”
—Dr. Erin P. Riley, professor of anthropology at San Diego State University
