I had been debating purchasing Shakti ever since it came out in 2003. It is a small, hardcover book of beautiful yoginis in the nude. Shakti captures the power, strength, and grace that women hold. The photographs manage to capture a feeling of motion and fluidity that I feel is lacking in other books that are devoted to photographs of yoga asanas. Shakti's photographs are all black and white with a grainy texture which lends itself well to the artist's vision. About half the pictures are more traditional yoga asanas. Regarding the other half of photos, I feel the photographer was trying to capture the essence of the feminine. A wonderful book!

I study yoga and bought this book at my studio. I love the pictures-- they inspire me as a yogi and they teach me form just by looking at them. I like the book better than many of my artist model books as many of them fuzz out the private regions! this book is about yoga, pure and simple, in the buff and captures graceful women and thier art.

My only problem was that the woman are all athletic and strong and make yoga look like it is only for the well built when yoga is for everyBODY.

This book is really a piece of art. Gorgeous photography, lighting, tones, contrast, the whole shabang.

The poses are very discreet and tasteful. This is not for someone who is looking for porn, you would be very disappointed.

This is simply a celebration of the female body and yoga. Great gift for any yoga lover.

I am new to shopping online. I choose Amazon because of its reputation. Well I just received this book and the pages were disconnected from the spine and less than half of the pages are present. I am greatly discussed of the integrity of the well. A book can be a bit beaten up but WHO SELLS A BOOK WITHOUT ALL ITS PAGES? I want my money back plus the shipping to send it back. What to do now?
