Dear reader and inspired yogi,
Ascent magazine was a small not-for-profit magazine of yoga and engaged spirituality that was published from 1999-2009.
We have also published a book, Inspired Lives, a collection of the best writing and artwork from the magazine. You can purchase it here.
We believe the stories, essays and interviews published in ascent are timeless, as inspiring and thought-provoking today as they were when first published. We hope you enjoy reading!
