The most complete collection of yoga asanas ever photographed, and the first-ever to categorise an astonishing 2,100 yoga poses.
2,100 Asanas is an unprecedented, meticulously crafted catalogue of yoga poses and modifications. It is also a gorgeous work of art, showcasing the beauty and athleticism of the human form. Each photograph features an expert yogi performing the pose to perfection. The aesthetic is clean and modern. The book is organised into eight major types of poses-standing, seated, core, quadruped, backbends, inversions, prone, and supine - and further broken down by families of poses that progress from easiest to more challenging. Every pose is accompanied by the name of the pose in English and Sanskrit, a description of the modification, the Drishti point (eye gaze), the chakras affected and its benefits.

Comments about 2,100 Asanas:
This is an excellent reference for yoga teachers or practitioners. It is well illustrated, precise descriptions of asanas, clear index and contents.
It is quite large and heavy so not for carrying around.
"This beautiful book will have anyone falling in love with the practice. (It also makes a fantastic addition to any coffee table.)"--Yahoo! Health
