Practitioners around the world reap the physical benefits of yoga, assuming poses and frequently calling them by their Sanskrit names. While many know that hanumanasana is named for the deity Hanuman, few understand why this is the case. Behind each asana and its corresponding movements is an ancient story about a god, sage, or sacred animal, much like Aesop’s fables or European folktales. Myths of the Asanas is the first book to collect and retell these ancient stories. The myths behind yoga’s spiritual tradition have the power to help students of all levels realize their full potential. Meditating on the tolerance of trees while standing in tree pose can help one become more tolerant. Learning how the disfigured sage Astavakra came to be the teacher of a king can liberate us from anxieties about our external appearance and our self imposed limitations. Marveling at Hanuman’s devotion to Ram can serve as a source of spiritual strength and determination. With more than sixty beautiful illustrations to frame the stories, Myths of the Asanas will add a new dimension to your practice and study of yoga.

Filled with chakra activation charts, images and descriptions of over eight hundred poses, and Sanskrit translation guides, this comprehensive encyclopedia makes the spirituality, practice, and language of yoga more accessible than ever before. Packed with over eight hundred individual poses performed by renowned practitioner Yogrishi Vishvketu, Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses is the most comprehensive yoga asana guide to date. With poses adapted to every skill level, the encyclopedia is an invaluable resource for both the yoga novice and the studio owner. Nearly a millennium ago, the hatha yoga tradition included over seven hundred thousand yoga poses. Today, only a fraction of those are known. Yogi Vishvketu, a lifelong yoga devotee, bridges that gap by connecting modern poses to their ancient roots with an intuitive naming system that fuses past with present. Thorough translation charts—which provide pose names in Sanskrit script along with transliterations in Sanskrit and English—help practitioners gain an understanding of the relationship between the name and the spiritual significance of each pose. The energetic essence of each asana is unveiled through a detailed chakra chart and graphic indicators depicting the chakras activated by that pose. With poses organized into a logical sequence with roots in the traditional Himalayan system and enhanced by Yogi Vishvketu’s decades of practice, this yoga compendium showcases the asanas, the language, and the spiritual path of yoga together in a single, all-inclusive volume.

In Yogabody, author Judith Hanson Lasater writes, "You can’t fully understand the dynamic movement of asana without first understanding the basic structure of the human body." Drawing on almost forty years of experience as a yoga teacher and physical therapist, she focuses here on macroanatomy and kinesiology in relationship to asana. Organized into five parts—the locomotor system, the vertebral column, the lower extremity, the trunk, and the upper extremity—Yogabody takes you on a fantastic journey through the bones, joints, connective tissue, nerves, and muscles, revealing how these structures interact to create and express movement. Judith conveys her expert knowledge in clear, concise language that makes it easy to understand, to remember, and to integrate. For seasoned teachers, novice teachers, and those in training to teach, Yogabody will help you guide your students to move with more enjoyment and less difficulty. For yoga students, Yogabody will help you practice more confidently on your own. Packed with color anatomical drawings, black-and-white diagrammatic asana illustrations, and helpful charts, you will learn what your body is made of, how it is designed to move, and how to bring the knowledge of both to awaken to asana.

Briefing of Asanas and Pranyama following loosing exercises and breathing techniques. More than 1,00,000 copies sold. Swami Vivekananda proclaimed "each soul is potentially Divine. The goal is to manifest this Divinity within, by controlling Nature – external and internal. Do it either by work or worship, psychic control or philosophy; by one or more, or all of these and be free.' The systematic methodology of unfoldment of this inner potential Divinity, by moving towards Self-perfection is referred to as Yoga by Sri Aurobindo. Yoga is thus a process by which the Animal-man ascends through the stages Man-man, Super-man and the Divine-man.

We have long recognized that many objects in museums were originally on display in temples, shrines, or monasteries, and were religiously significant to the communities that created and used them. How, though, are such objects to be understood, described, exhibited, and handled now that they are in museums? Are they still sacred objects, or formerly sacred objects that are now art objects, or are they simultaneously objects of religious and artistic significance, depending on who is viewing the object? These objects not only raise questions about their own identities, but also about the ways we understand the religious traditions in which these objects were created and which they represent in museums today. Bringing together religious studies scholars and museum curators, Sacred Objects in Secular Spaces is the first volume to focus on Asian religions in relation to these questions. The contributors analyze an array of issues related to the exhibition in museums of objects of religious significance from Hindu, Buddhist, and Sikh traditions. The "livesÂ?? of objects are considered, along with the categories of "sacredÂ?? and "profaneÂ??, "religiousÂ?? and "secularÂ??. As interest in material manifestations of religious ideas and practices continues to grow, Sacred Objects in Secular Spaces is a much-needed contribution to religious and Asian studies, anthropology of religion and museums studies.
