The Synergy Between Yoga & Friendship Revealed

A small but profound book uses yoga to celebrate the true meaning of friendship.

Golden Valley, Minn. - (May 10, 2010) - TRISTAN Publishing, is proud to introduce Friendship - The Art of the Practice.� This collection of dazzling photographs captures friends practicing yoga and friendship in spectacular settings around the world. �The photographs are coupled with inspiring quotes that celebrate the sometimes simple and sometimes complex connections that form from the cherished practice of friendship.


About the Authors
Laurie Ellis-Young, a globe-trotting yoga teacher for 35 years and Nancy Chakrin, a multi-talented artist and photographer, began their friendship in Guatemala in 2008.

An unlikely but complementary duo, they challenge each other to alternately "Do" and "Be”, sharing a dance between structure and spontaneity. Their quest compelled them to explore volcanoes, lakes, mountains, deserts, ocean beaches, jungles and cityscapes all in pursuit of showing the synergy between yoga and friendship.
