This book is a comprehensive and practical guide to the yoga asanas (poses) developed by BKS Iyengar, a well-known yoga guru. The Iyengar method is based on hatha yoga, which is a set of asanas and sequences of asanas designed to align your skin, muscle, and bones, particularly your spine, so that energy can flow freely and correct physical and mental imbalances that cause illness. Suryanamaskar is the most articulated hatha yoga sequence.
Light on Yoga:
If you want to practise BKS Iyengar's hatha yoga in its original form, this is the book for you. This book, first published in 1966, describes 200 postures with the help of over 600 photographs. Each pose includes instructions on how to perform the pose, the benefits of the asana in general, specific conditions it may cure, and precautions to take while performing the pose.
The Heart of Yoga:
Desikachar, the son of Sri Tirumalai Krishnamacharya, one of the greatest yogis of the modern era, is a great yoga guru in his own right. Based on Krishnamacharya's fundamental concept of Viniyoga, the book provides a step-by-step sequence for developing a complete practice. Viniyoga is the principle of tailoring yoga to a person's specific needs; that is, yoga practice should be tailored to the individuality and specific needs of the person in order to achieve maximum therapeutic value.

All of us have kundalini, the primal force, dormant at the base of our spines. Few people are aware of the method for rousing it from its sleep. The keepers of this knowledge have decided it is prudent to open the doors to formerly secret practises and expose the what, why, and how of Kundalini practise now that the world is aware of yoga and its effectiveness. You will be guided through this tour by Kundalini Yoga for All, which will explain each station you come across.

The eight-limbed approach is presented by Stuart Ray Sarbacker and Kevin Kimple as a resource that may be used repeatedly to enhance and broaden comprehension and practical
