Summary
"Combining science and tradition, this book explains the history of yoga--the classical texts and their traditions--50 classical yoga postures (asanas) as well as variations and adaptations for safe practice; proper breathing, including basic breathing exercises (pranayama); and the important yoga aspect of inner development. Along with clear and informative content, this book contains an anatomical and physiological description of the human body and relevant information about the energetic anatomy--in other words, an explanation of the human body and the chakras. For each asana, the precautions and the gained physical, psychological, and energetic benefits are listed. In addition, each asana is accompanied by images illustrating the exercise and anatomical drawings showing in detail the main muscles used in each posture"--
