Yoga is more than a series of physical postures. It is a philosophy, a way of life, a spiritual path. While there is no record that Lincoln assumed the headstand during Cabinet meetings, or meditated in the lotus pose before delivering the Gettysburg Address, in many aspects of his life, Lincoln behaved, quite naturally and unconsciously, just like a yogi. This book was written to throw a spotlight on Lincoln’s many regular, and even daily, habits that demonstrate his affinity with the ancient spiritual science of yoga.
