There are several forms of yoga, depending on whether emancipation, mental energy, or physical powers are sought, and also on the paths followed to attain these. One of the chief and most popular forms of yoga is hatha yoga. The practice deals chiefly with-the body and its power and functions, and is best considered as a part of physical culture.
Especially popular in the West, hatha yoga is a holistic form of exercise. Translated from the original Sanskrit, this book offers invaluable guidance to all practitioners of yoga.
