About the Book
"The Power of Yoga explores the profound nature of yoga by demystifying ancient Sanskrit texts on the subject and a plethora of philosophies governing its practice, and making them relevant to present times. While Patanjali's Yoga Sutras provide us the roadmap to understand the way of this science, the 21 Yoga Sequences for modern lifestyle-related disorders elaborated upon in this book make it a valuable aid for the modern-day practitioner, more so since it is presented in simple language without diluting the authenticity of the techniques.
Structured primarily as a Sequence Manual, this book offers customised yoga routines to help people cope better with their day-to-day demanding schedules. The sequences are also categorised and visually depicted for a better understanding.
Ultimately, The Power of Yoga seeks to enlighten the readers on the deeper significance of yoga by encouraging them to further explore it as a timetested and an established science.
