In 1974, the legendary teacher of teachers yogi Dharma Mittra photographed himself in 908 yoga postures. He printed each photo as an 8 x 10 and pasted them together to form a poster, creating the Ultimate Yoga Chart as a gift for his teacher, Swami Kailashananda (Yogi Gupta). Asanas collects 608 of those black-and-white photographs, each accompanied by the English name of the pose and the Sanskrit characters, brief commentary, and specific combinations for Vinyasa, Ashtanga, and Iyengar practice. There are suggestions for beginning, intermediate, and advanced yoga practitioners, as well as a list of poses beneficial for particular health problems and chakra relationships. Because it builds on basic postures, Asanas will appeal to students of any of the 100 yoga styles.

Love it!
This is the best price I've found anywhere for this charming little book. All the popular yoga postures are included, along with some you may not have heard of and many interesting variations. Each pose is translated word for word from Sanskrit to English. The author breaks it down into six categories, with a little write-up on each. The model demonstrates perfect form and a deep respect for the practice. practice.
