Photographer Michael O'Neill's Coffee Table Book 'On Yoga: The Architecture of Peace' (2015) Captures Its Roots

Photographer Michael O'Neill has released the beautiful Taschen coffee table book "On Yoga: The Architecture of Peace" (2015) in an effort to document the roots of yoga and its long and rich history.

Now brought together for the first time, this extraordinary body of work tells the story of yoga as it's never been told before, with nearly 200 photographs, most of which have never been seen. Two of O'Neill's most important subjects, meditation master His Holiness Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji and Ashtanga guru Eddie Stern, join the conversation with their essays on the role of yoga in contemporary culture, the history of the practice from the time of Patanjali, and the healing power of what Michael O'Neill calls "the architecture of peace…a series of postures that bring the practitioner closer to touching the infinite."
