"There is tension built into cracking open a person's journal. There is risk involved, danger, like you are about to read something you shouldn't."
So begins Ashtanga Yoga: Maps and Musings, a compilation of articles, interviews, drawings, yantras, photographs and personal journal entries from certified Ashtanga yoga teacher David Garrigues. David's longtime student and partner, Joy Marzec, witnessed his passion for hatha yoga, specifically his Ashtanga lineage. She decided to share his ideas and musings as a resource for other Ashtanga practitioners. What does it mean to do self-study? How important is asana relative to the other limbs of Ashtanga yoga? Why do we practice, and do we need a reason to? Delve into David's journals to find out.
