Publisher's Summary

The word yoga takes us back to the ancient times and brings to mind a plethora of images of extraordinary postures that seem impossible to attempt, let alone master. Yoga is much more than mastering the various postures or increasing your flexibility. It is an ancient practice that involves various physical stances as well as several mental and breathing exercises that cleanse our mind, body, and soul. It focuses on self-enlightenment as its ultimate goal.

Yoga has continued to evolve over the years, and now, there are various disciplines that are practiced. Yoga is a science that has transcended boundaries, language, and culture and has got worldwide acceptance. It is estimated that over 35 million people practice yoga in America and the UK. The most common form of yoga practiced here is Hatha yoga.

The origins, the concept, the ultimate goal, and the various benefits of practicing such an ancient art form are still unknown to many. Beyond the assumption that it started in India, the knowledge about yoga takes a dip into the unknown. There are a lot of intricacies that are associated with this art form that need to be understood to really reap the true benefits of this ancient art form.

This audiobook aims at enlightening you and takes you into the wonderful yet mysterious world of yoga and, in particular, Hatha yoga. This audiobook helps you understand Hatha yoga better and the basics that can help you get started.

Very Interesting Book

This book has the best information about anatomy. I think it's a must for every practitioner or teacher. There has been a lot of people injured because of a lack of anatomy information or learning.

I Needed It

This book is an excellent resource for anyone teaching or practicing Hatha yoga. The chapter on breath alone is worth the price of the book. There is so much here.
