    Book Review Hatha Yoga Asanas (Pocket Guide for Personal Practice)

    Hatha Yoga Asanas (Pocket Guide for Personal Practice) Daniel DiTuro and Ingrid Yang Human Kinetics Trade Paperback ISBN-13: 978-1-4504-1485-2 174 Pages Hatha Yoga Asanas by Daniel DiTuro and Ingrid Yang is the perfect companion to any Yoga practice. With over 150 asana poses in beautiful full-color photographs this quick reference guide will be useful for the beginner as well as the seasoned practitioner. Each asana begins with a clearly defined difficulty level, which range from levels 1 through 8, followed by a starting position and the page it can be found on, the directions on how to successfully achieve each position, and a full color photograph of the successful pose. As a beginner I was intrigued by the higher difficulty levels (but not tempted enough to try them) and was surprised by the quality of the photographs in the book. Hatha Yoga Asanas is a must have for those studying Yoga on an individual or personal level, whether a beginner or an instructor, and I was happy to add this supplemental, easy to use reference guide to the Healthy Living / Fitness section of my home library. 4 out of 5 stars The Alternative Southeast Wisconsin
