608 Yoga Postures
In 1974, the legendary “teacher of teachers” yogi Dharma Mittra photographed himself in 908 yoga postures. He printed each photo as an 8 x 10 and pasted them together to form a poster, creating the Ultimate Yoga Chart as a gift for his teacher, Swami Kailashananda (Yogi Gupta). Asanas collects 608 of those black-and-white photographs, each on its own page and accompanied by the pose's English and Sanskrit names. It also presents brief commentary on each type of posture (including Sun Salutations, standing poses, inversions, twists, seated poses, breathing practices, resting poses, and more), guidelines for practice, and a glossary. Simple, accessible, and visually stunning, Asanas makes a wonderful gift — and invaluable resource — for students of any of today's many yoga styles.
