Yoga AsanasMoreFor a long time now, graded lessons on Yoga as taught from 1918 onwards, at the famous Yoga Institute of Santa Cruz are being published in pocket editions. The Series is intended to guide the layman to study Yoga in absence of a teacher. Yoga Asanas Simplified supplies an ideal course of Yoga education for daily practice. Written by Shri Yogendra who put Yoga on the map of modern science, the book presents a balanced course of simple Yoga postures which are both traditional and scientific. With the addition of two innovations (i) of rhythmic breathing during exercise and (ii) of dynamic variations of difficult yoga postures the book becomes all the more useful even to the sick. These postures have been worked out for decades at The Yoga Institute in India and America under medical supervision. - The Hindu The record of The Yoga Institute is of a character that is outstanding because the scientific work it has accomplished has not been attempted before. - Illustrated Weekly of India-------------------------------------------About Author:Shri Yogendraji (1897-1989) who was initiated into the path of yoga by Paramhamsa Madhavadasji, saw his life mission as to bring yoga out of forest hermitages and make it freely accessible to the masses - men and women, young and old, sick and healthy, people of all communities, in all parts of the world. Also called the Father of Modern Yoga Renaissance, he showed to the world that a householder can be a Yogi, thus reviving a practice, going back to the Upanisadic period. He trained his young wife, Sita Devi in the yoga way of life and with her support, he went on a crusade to bring yoga to every home. He simplified many of the Yogic techniques and thus is a pioneer in reviving the classical yoga of Patanjali. The Yoga Institute he founded began its activities in a bungalow of Dadabhai Naoroji
