Packed with over 800 unique poses performed by renowned practitioner Yogrishi Vishvketu, Yogasana is the most comprehensive yoga asana guide to date. The poses range from beginner to advanced levels, which makes this the perfect book for both the yoga novice and the studio owner.
Vishvketu, a lifelong yoga devotee who grew up in the Himalayan foothills, unveils the mystery surrounding the names of traditional yoga poses by listing each name in Sanskrit, Romanized Sanskrit, and English and providing guided translation charts. The reader gains an understanding of the rich historical and spiritual naming system behind each asana. Charts describing the properties of each chakra and a graphic indicator showing which chakras are activated by each pose help readers focus their practice and utilize the unique energetic essence of each asana.
With color-coded poses organized into a logical sequence with roots in both the traditional Himalayan system and Yogrishi Vishvketu's decades of practice, this yoga compendium brings together information about the physical exercise, the history of the practice, and the spiritual path of yoga in a single, all-inclusive volume.
