5.0 out of 5 stars Photos and descriptions for 36 poses. 20 June 2014

A very informative book on how yoga postures were performed a few hundred years ago. This book includes photos for 36 postures, many of which are called something else today or are performed slightly different. What most yoga schools call Hero Pose today was called Eagle Pose, and Cow Face was performed with the legs only and not the arms.
