The author had been teaching yoga to hundreds of people in the early sixties, and saw there was a need for a book that covered all major aspects of Yoga in a compact form. This book does not attempt to reflect traditional eastern yoga exactly. Instead, an attempt bat been made to give not only the practices, but also the spirit of yoga as seen in western adepts. Starting with the physical side, the book then progresses to the subtler phases of yoga. It finishes with the philosophy underlying yoga practice.
