Yoga practitioners were captivated by simple instruction and stunning photography in the best-selling Hatha Yoga Illustrated. Now, that winning formula has been applied to Hatha Yoga Asanas: Pocket Guide for Personal Practice. Designed to be instantly accessible and immediately intuitive, this guide complements the more comprehensive Hatha Yoga Illustrated with beautiful visual depictions and movement cues for over 150 classic hatha yoga asanas.

The asanas range from gentle yoga for beginners to more advanced physical forms of yoga, including popular asanas such as upward-facing dog, warrior, and locust. Each asana is depicted by a four-color photograph and is accompanied by short and simple steps for performing the movements. The guide also serves as a quick reference to both the English and Sanskrit names as well as the level of difficulty for each pose. Each asana has a numerical ranking based on flexibility, strength, and balance.

Covering a variety of hatha yoga styles, including ashtanga vinyasa and iyengar, Hatha Yoga Asanas: Pocket Guide for Personal Practice offers an essential resource no yoga practitioner should be without.
