To date this is the only book available which details all of the first four traditional sequences of Ashtanga Yoga. The third edition of Ashtanga Yoga As It Is contains an extensive range of new material, providing many relevant techniques on breathing, Asana, Bandha and Drishti. It gives insight into the practical application of Yoga philosophy including information on the Chakra, Granthi, Nadi and the Yoga sutras of Patanjali.
The photographic section of the book depicts all of the postures, movements and breaths of the first four traditional sequences. It also presents the correct Sanskrit transliterations and the traditional Vinyasa counting for every posture. Ashtanga Yoga As It Is provides an exploration of both the physical and psychological aspects of the practice. It sheds light on some core Yoga concepts and relevant self development principles. It covers the main points of the Ashtanga tradition including many previously unwritten rules advocated by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois. This is a one of a kind map to the traditional Vinyasa method.
