A new edition of Light on Yoga: The Definitive Guide to Yoga Practice by B. K. S. Iyengar is released this month. Iyengar, who sadly died in 2014, is regarded as one of the world’s most respected yoga teachers.
‘Light on Yoga’ is for many people the “bible of yoga” and sits proudly on the bookshelves of many yoga enthusiasts.
The book serves as a great resource for both beginners and experienced practitioners of yoga. It features B.K.S. Iyengar in many step-by-step guides to the most important asanas (postures) and sequences.
As well as taking you through the moves it also provides a comprehensive 300 week development plan (almost 6 years) that will take your from being an absolute beginner through to a self-taught expert.
As well as teaching the yoga exercises the book also teaches Pranayama, which is the name given to yoga breathing.
Yoga is one of the most popular forms of private exercise and is perfect for people who wish to exercise at home.
