Unusually good reference book I’m a trainee yoga teacher and this is quite possibly my favourite asana/posture book in my fairly large library of yoga texts.

Dear readers, the yoga bible is a good definition of the different postures and how it affects the body. The difficulty is that the description is sometimes too lengthy and goes over one’s head. Perhaps it is not for beginners and rather for practitioners. However, it is very well written and the pictures are very clear.
