The yoga "bible",
This review is from: Light on Yoga: The Definitive Guide to Yoga Practice (Paperback)
A classic. It is possible to teach yourself yoga using this book. I've seen it done. Having started with Iyengar's yoga before exploring the more contemporary, fluid creative styles of yoga available to us in the west, I highly recommend this path... his teachings, his teachers and this book. Learn to walk before you run.
Anyone confused about the ways in which yoga transcends mere physical exercise (so associated with Iyengar and his block and blankets!) need only read the opening of Light on Yoga and just take the postures from there.
