Yoga is a timeless pragmatic science evolved over thousands of years dealing with the physical, moral, mental and spiritual well-being of man as a whole. The first book to systematize this practice was the classic treatise the Yoga Sutras (or Aphorisms) of Patanjali dating from 200 BC. Unfortunately most of the books published on Yoga in our day have been unworthy of both the subject and its first great exponent, as they are superficial, popular and at times misleading. Iyengar has even been asked by their readers whether I can drink acid, chew glass, walk through fire, make myself invisible or perform other magical acts. The title of this book is Light on Yoga, as the purpose is to describe as simply as possible the asanas (postures) and pranayamas (breathing disciplines) in the new light of our own era, its knowledge and its requirements. Instructions on asana and pranayama are therefore given in great detail and are based on the author'ss experience for over twenty-seven years in many parts of the world. It contains the complete technique of 200 asanas with 592 photographs from which the asanas can be mastered: and it also covers bandha, kriya and pranayama with a further 5 photographs.
