This book is an invaluable resource for Hatha Yoga asanas. Each asana is described in great detail, with all explanations being accompanied by clear photographs. Counterpose, drishti (eye focus), physical and mental benefits as well as contraindications can be found with every posture. The photographic index is a wonderful tool for those unacquainted with the Sanskrit names for the asanas. Those who are will find the posture they are looking for in the Sanskrit alphabetical index.


This book will not contribute to your understanding of the Chakras and how you can use them for your health if you are not already intimately familiar with the energy blueprint of your body. It will, however, enhance your understanding of individual postures that are used in Chakra Yoga as well.
