“Hatha Yoga Asanas is a clear, concise, beautifully illustrated guide to yoga postures and is suitable for all yogis and teachers of every style.

Sage Rountree, PhD- Author of The Athlete’s Guide to Yoga

About the Author

A self-taught photographer, Daniel DiTuro began a series of yoga photographs in 1999 shortly after taking his first yoga class. In 2001 he founded The Yoga Project to promote the physical and mental wellness of mind, body, and spirit through the creation and publication of inspirational and motivational meditation and yoga asanas photographs. In 2003, DiTuro, along with Martin Kirk and Brooke Boone, released the best-seller Hatha Yoga Illustrated, which contains over 600 of his yoga photographs.

DiTuro published his second book, Live Longer & Healthier Eating Foods You Love on a Southern Italian Mediterranean Diet, in August 2009, which was one of the selections for the United States in the 2010 Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.

Coauthor Ingrid Yang embarked on her yoga journey in 1999 in New York City, where she studied directly with David Life at Jivamukti Yoga Center and Cyndi Lee at OM Yoga Center. She is the founder of Blue Point Yoga Center in Durham, North Carolina, and teaches a variety of yoga disciplines, including vinyasa, restorative, yin, and cancer therapy. She leads teacher trainings and workshops in the United States, Australia, and Asia.

Ingrid earned her law degree at Duke University and is currently pursuing a doctor of medicine degree with a focus on anatomy and physiatry at Rush University Medical College in Chicago, Illinois.

12 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Brooks Rainey Pearson on February 20, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book combines beautiful photography with a simple, clear instruction manual to a wide range of asanas. I have come across many yoga instruction manuals in my thirteen years of teaching yoga, and I appreciate the simplicity and straight forwardness of this book. For each posture, the English and Sanskrit names are given, the difficulty level is ranked on a 1-10 scale, instruction are listed step-by-step, and a photograph shows the final posture. It is accessible for beginners, but also includes postures that are challenging for advanced practices. I will refer to this book in the future in my teaching, and will recommend it to my students who are looking for a concise illustrated guide to the asanas.

Get this book! Finally, a short and sweet yoga book that breaks down the most popular poses in a clear, concise, and simple way. I have practiced for years and find that most yoga instruction is too detailed and does not leave much to the student's intuition. The beautiful photos of the various yogis are very inspiring as well!

Format: Paperback
My friend sent me this book a few weeks ago and I use it almost every day now! I have been practicing yoga regularly for about 6 months now and have been struggling with understanding teachers when they use Sanskrit names for the poses in class. This book has been so helpful to understand what they want me to do and what poses they are referring to! I have been trying to practice more at home and I really like the photo accompanied with the simple and straightforward instructions. Most yoga books I've gotten are too complicated and I just give up, but the brief instructions with the full size photo are the perfect combination for me, since I've just started taking yoga and I want to get really good at it now! I am going to try to do at least one of the harder poses each week. I'm going to get this book for all my friends who like yoga too!

Hatha Yoga Asanas by Daniel DiTuro and Ingrid Yang is the perfect companion to any Yoga practice. With over 150 asana poses in beautiful full-color photographs this quick reference guide will be useful for the beginner as well as the seasoned practitioner. Each asana begins with a clearly defined difficulty level, which range from levels 1 through 8, followed by a starting position and the page it can be found on, the directions on how to successfully achieve each position, and a full color photograph of the successful pose. As a beginner I was intrigued by the higher difficulty levels (but not tempted enough to try them) and was surprised by the quality of the photographs in the book.

Hatha Yoga Asanas is a must have for those studying Yoga on an individual or personal level, whether a beginner or an instructor, and I was happy to add this supplemental, easy to use reference guide to the Healthy Living / Fitness section of my home library.
