OM Canada: An Intimate Glimpse at Yoga's Firsts is a celebration of yoga's history in Canada. Here are profiles of sixty of the country's yoga innovators-the firsts to set up a practice in their area, -start a provincial association, launch a TV show, write a book, build an ashram, open a studio, etc. These are the passionate souls who ushered in the practice of yoga in a post-war era, when contemporaries still perceived them as loners and loons.
