      Congrats to my dear friend Dr Kausthub Desikachar on his latest book, “The Heart of Asana”!
      Just got my copy today and am tremendously impressed and amazed at the immense amount of thought and work that has gone into its manifestation.
      He in indeed a worthy successor and credit to his illustrious lineage and I am so proud to have such a friend in yoga too.

      The Heart of Asana: A Comprehensive Manual of Classical Yoga Postures, aims to lift the shroud of mystery that has surrounded modern Asana practice and principles. It presents detailed information on many of the traditional postures that are still in common practice. Each page is dedicated to an in-depth examination of an Asana and includes:
      §                    Asana name in traditional Devanagari script
      §                    Asana name in Roman Transliteration form
      §                    Meaning of the Asana name from its constituent parts
      §                    Clear illustration of the posture with additional notes highlighting areas of detail
      §                    Classification types of the Asana
      §                    The static and/or dynamic nature of the Asana
      §                    The role of Bandha-s in the Asana
      §                    Classical source texts that list or describe the Asana
      §                    Illustrations of the common variations of the Asana
      §                    The classical Vinyasa-krama-s (steps in and out) of the Asana
      The book also includes useful appendices, presenting a brief description of all the classical source texts and a list of Indian mythological personalities after whom some of the Asana-s were named.
      The Heart of Asana is a multi-lingual book featuring 234 Asana-s and 575 Vinyasa-krama-s, with detailed information presented in English, Spanish, French and German. It is meticulously researched, beautifully illustrated and presented in a simple, easy to use layout.
