Living Breath, an art of yoga
Several years ago, in collaboration with Eleanor Dawson, Peter began the process of a free translation of his book “La Chair Vivante”, in order to reach an English-speaking audience. After his death, the project was taken up again by the association “Art of Yoga – Peter Hersnack”; Eleanor Dawson and Colette Hersnack were joined by an Englishwoman, Sheila Baker, an American, Robin Cauchois, a Canadian, Robin Colyer and Ariane Felton, native French, but fluent in English, each bringing precious contributions to a joyful collaborative process.
The text is taken from the teaching which Peter gave orally during a retreat in August 2002: the 7 days of the retreat gave takes the form of the 7 chapters, for a fruitful dialogue between practices and theoretical principles.
Le precision of the suggestions for postures and breath, the subtle exploration of the connection within the symbolic body, the completely personal interpretation of the ancient texts make this teaching a real work of art: this “art of yoga”, so close to Peter’s heart, a teaching in the service of life and freedom.
