Yoga Asanas Simplified
"For a long time now, graded lessons on Yoga as taught from 1918 onwards, at the famous Yoga Institute of Santa Cruz are being published in pocket editions. The Series is intended to guide the layman to study Yoga in absence of a teacher. Yoga Asanas Simplified supplies an ideal course of Yoga education for daily practice. Written by Shri Yogendra who put Yoga on the map of modern science, the book presents a balanced course of simple Yoga postures which are both traditional and scientific. With the addition of two innovations (i) of rhythmic breathing during exercise and (ii) of dynamic variations of difficult yoga postures the book becomes all the more useful even to the sick."--provided by Amazon.com.
