About the Book
This little book is a surprisingly comprehensive introduction to the metaphysical background of yogic practice, along with a host of related practical matters. In fact it is a short guide to practice yoga, illustrated by a couple of dozen photos of yogic postures (asanas). In this book author traces stereotypical misconceptions of Yoga by western people to sideshow performers and supposedly esoteric literature. The postures introduced here are all fairly easy and well-described. Hope this book will be helpful for yoga trainers and laymen to practice yoga.
