Each asana is also labeled with lead ins, variations, and other helpful information, and many of the more complex ones have the sequence to enter it. Every single thing in the book is accompanied by good, full color, unambiguous photographs to compare against. If I lost it I would buy another copy. I think that's about the best praise I can give a book like this.
This wonderful 400 page book is organized into four parts. Part one provides a detailed introduction of what yoga is and the various kinds being practiced. The second part is the longest section and covers the actual practice of the yoga movements. It explains preliminary practices, standing postures, seated and floor postures, twists and abdominal toners, arm balances, backbends, inversions, relaxation, pranayama, internal energy locks and yogic cleansing practices. The third part is important because it focuses on the use of yoga exercises for various medical and physical conditions. The final part is about finding your yoga and determining what you are seeking from the practice. This section also explains the “nine branches of the tree of yoga.”
What really makes this excellent book unique is that it shows such a wide variety of yoga asanas (Postures). At my advanced age and skill level I could never do many of these yoga postures; however, there are enough simple and beginner yoga postures to practice in this volume. This short review cannot do this book justice, and if you are seeking a clear color reference book on the many yoga asanas (Postures) this book is for you. At this time this is my favorite yoga book.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Tactical Principles of the most effective combative systems).
