An indispensable book for Yoga Practitioners, Teachers and Trainers:
This book gives the symbolism of each āsana, how to enter and exit, the breath in the āsana, the preparation āsana needed, the counterpose āsana required, and the internal point of focus mantained.
Considerable detail is given to the effects of the āsana from a western, yoga and āyurveda perspective, as well as modifications and variations.
