Now here's a great book! It's been around since 1996 and still I'd say it's one of the best Yoga Posture books. Erich, the author and very funny guy in person :-), starts with an easy to read explanation of what Yoga is about. When I first read this book many years ago, I remember thinking--"Oh, this is why so many folks love Yoga." It really opened my eyes to a deeper and more meaningful Yoga.
Aside from showing a more meaningful Yoga than "just the postures", he also tackles the postures in great detail. Even his explanation of savasana (the final relaxation pose) is filled with detail that brings more depth and understanding to this important pose.
