Publisher ~ On-Word Bound Books

Yamas_Niyama_FrontCover. On-Word Bound Books LLC is a small, independent publishing company committed to producing quality products for niche markets. On-Word Bound Books works closely with their authors in order to produce the highest quality book possible.

Co-owners, Sara Duke and David Devere started On-Word Bound Books in 2003. This is their first yoga book and they are very pleased with the result. They feel the content and design are both top quality and the price can't be beat.

Published in 2009, the book is selling better than ever. Many yoga teachers are taking this book into their community and using it as a teaching aid to introduce these important concepts. In addition, many yoga teaching studios have adopted this book as part of their core curriculum.

Producing books doesn't keep Sara and Dave completely busy so they both have developed niche "hobby" jobs to pursue their personal interests.

Sara teaches yoga in various studios and businesses around Duluth and has a passion for Restorative and Therapeutic Yoga. See her website, Do Restorative Yoga, and blog for more information.

David enjoys history, culture, food and wine. These interests led him to earn a Certified Specialist of Wine accreditation from the Society of Wine Educators in 2012. A trip in 2011 on the Canal du Midi in the South of France was such an enjoyable experience he redoubled his efforts to helping people explore, taste, and travel our beautiful blue planet.

Together, David and Sara are offering guided tours on the Canals of France, combining their love of travel, yoga and wine to offer you the most relaxing vacation you may ever go on. Visit for more information about wine education, tasting and French canal boat tours.
