Foreword by Martin Clark

Yoga is a popular physical, mental, and spiritual discipline that originated in ancient India. Various traditions of yoga can be found in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, and in recent years Western culture has embraced yoga’s power of simplicity, stillness and mental poise. This accessible new book focuses on a series of exercises, body motions and self-disciplines that offer the benefits of yoga to everyone. Featuring specially commissioned practical photography, step-by-step instruction, and an introduction to the entire scope of the system of yoga.
