Integral Yoga Publications is pleased to announce the release of The Woodstock Guru. This new book was published in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival, which was opened by Swami Satchidananda in August 1969. When he first arrived in the West in 1966, Yoga was largely unknown here. There were no classes at the local YMCA. Health food stores contained only bottles of vitamin supplements and photos of body builders. Few understood the meaning of karma. When most people thought of a yogi, they remembered a popular cartoon man sleeping on a bed of nails. All this changed when Swami Satchidananda arrived in the West. This new book, illustrated with the artwork of pop artist icon Peter Max, tells the untold story of the Woodstock Guru’s journey to Woodstock, the inspiration and legacy of Woodstock, and the Yoga movement it inspired. Available now from Shakticom.
