Increase strength and stamina, reduce stress and anxiety, reduce blood pressure, and increase flexibility with hatha yoga—the physical style of yoga. This practical version of yoga combines an uplifting, self-honoring discipline with a more physical style, and Hatha Yoga Illustrated uses nearly 650 full-color photos to visually demonstrate 77 standard poses from hatha yoga that apply to all major hatha styles including Iyengar, Astanga, Anusara, and Bikram.

Individual poses are presented with detailed instructions from start to finish, showing how to achieve proper alignment and breathing to ensure challenging yet safe execution. The result is an increase in the effectiveness of the physical and mental benefits you’ll experience with each pose. In addition, several pose variations based on personal preference, ability, and fitness level are included. Eleven sample yoga routines show how to assemble the poses into workouts that meet your specific time, difficulty, and intensity parameters.

Colorful and comprehensive, Hatha Yoga Illustrated is organized for your ultimate convenience and use. Use it to guide your muscles, as well as your mind, in this physical style of yoga.
