Yogasana Book Description :

Filled with chakra activation charts, images and descriptions of over eight hundred poses, and Sanskrit translation guides, this comprehensive encyclopedia makes the spirituality, practice, and language of yoga more accessible than ever before. Packed with over eight hundred individual poses performed by renowned practitioner Yogrishi Vishvketu, Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses is the most comprehensive yoga asana guide to date. With poses adapted to every skill level, the encyclopedia is an invaluable resource for both the yoga novice and the studio owner. Nearly a millennium ago, the hatha yoga tradition included over seven hundred thousand yoga poses. Today, only a fraction of those are known. Yogi Vishvketu, a lifelong yoga devotee, bridges that gap by connecting modern poses to their ancient roots with an intuitive naming system that fuses past with present. Thorough translation charts—which provide pose names in Sanskrit script along with transliterations in Sanskrit and English—help practitioners gain an understanding of the relationship between the name and the spiritual significance of each pose. The energetic essence of each asana is unveiled through a detailed chakra chart and graphic indicators depicting the chakras activated by that pose. With poses organized into a logical sequence with roots in the traditional Himalayan system and enhanced by Yogi Vishvketu’s decades of practice, this yoga compendium showcases the asanas, the language, and the spiritual path of yoga together in a single, all-inclusive volume.
