This book is divided into two parts, the first an illustrated catalogue of asanas and pranayama, the second some variations of certain asanas. It is intended that it be regarded as a reference work only, both for teachers and students. Adequate space has been left for notes to be written on preparation, counter poses, other variations, etc., as suitable for a particular teacher or student. I would like to emphasize the necessity of learning under the supervision of a qualified teacher, and to stress that trying to learn asanas or pranayama from the contents of these pages, would be a misuse of the books.Having benefited so much working on this project, I am quite confident that this Illustrated Guide to Asanas and Pranayama will be a valuable and useful supplement to both yoga teachers and students. Any suggestions for improvements to this book would be appreciated.
