What is this Book about?

With this book we offer you a unique Yoga reference guide that covers the concepts, applications, and the broad variety of modalities of this ancient Indian physical, mental, and spiritual exercise and lifestyle system.

After the general introduction, we open the book with an extensive section that explains the most important Yoga concepts and techniques. This is followed by the section Yoga and Applications in which we discuss the various ways Yoga is practiced.

We then continue with the largest part of the book giving you a comprehensive overview of the best known Yoga modalities, divided into two distinct sections: traditional Yoga modalities and modern Yoga modalities.

And, at the end of the book, you’ll find a supplementary addition that supplies you with some extra info about closely related topics.

This book is not a training course, but aims at providing you with a comprehensive understanding of the topic presented.
