Throughout, she maintains a thoughtful balance between philosophy and instruction, and offers step-by-step directions and wisdom for personal and communal well-being. Lavishly illustrated with gorgeous full-color photographs, Hatha Yoga is sure to inspire beginning and advanced yoga practitioners alike.
