The ever-increasing popularity of Yoga and related practices makes a desktop reference
like this indispensible. With over twenty-five hundred entries and extensive illustrations,
it combines comprehensiveness with accessibility.
The book is arranged and written in a manner that will inform rather than overwhelm the
lay reader, while at the same time offering valuable references for the professional
researcher and the historian of religion.
This new edition includes information about contemporary Yoga teachers. It also provides
fuller descriptions and illustrations of Yoga poses, and features additional cross references.
