Several years ago, in collaboration with Eleanor Dawson, Peter began the process of a free translation of his book “La Chair Vivante”, in order to reach an English-speaking audience. After his death, the project was taken up again by the association “Art of Yoga – Peter Hersnack”; Eleanor Dawson and Colette Hersnack were joined by an Englishwoman, Sheila Baker, an American, Robin Cauchois, a Canadian, Robin Colyer and Ariane Felton, native French, but fluent in English, each bringing precious contributions to a joyful collaborative process.
This site, envisioned since the last annual general meeting, is presently in operation after a year of development. We are very proud of it. A huge thank you to Olivier, the designer, for his creativity and for the attention and care given to detail. We also thank you, the reader, for your patience.
The text is taken from the teaching which Peter gave orally during a retreat in August 2002: the 7 days of the retreat gave takes the form of the 7 chapters, for a fruitful dialogue between practices and theoretical principles.
