Hatha Yoga Illustrated by Martin Cook, Brooke Boon and Daniel DiTuro

There are many basic primers on yoga now available and choosing among them can be a daunting task. Hatha Yoga Illustrated, for greater strength, flexibility and focus by Martin Kirk, Brooke Boone and Daniel DiTuro is one of the best. For anyone who wants an introduction to what yoga is and how to do many of the most common poses this is a great choice.
      The book offers instruction and lots of clear color photograph for over 70 popular poses and variations. The writing is clear and to the point and includes tips for proper alignment. Also included is good information about benefits of the poses, suggested counter-poses and contraindications.
     There is a short solid chapter that gives a brief history of yoga and touches on pranayama (yogic breathing), clothing, props, mudras (yogic hand gestures), how and when to practice and meditation, but the main event in this book is the wonderful explanations and guidance on doing the poses. There is a chapter with numerous poses in each of the following categories:
Standing Postures, Balancing Postures, Arm-Balancing Postures, Inverted Postures, Backward-BendingPostures, Twisting Postures, Forward-Bending Postures, Sitting Postures, Reclining and Relaxation Postures
     All this is followed by an excellent chapter with 11 suggested routines composed of the postures in the preceeding chapters. At the end there are useful indexes in English and Sanskrit plus resources for further study and sources of yoga paraphernalia.   
     Martin Kirk is a senior Anusara Yoga certified instructor. Also a biomedical engineer Kirk has a gift for teaching yoga anatomy and therapuetics. He is co-director of Yoga Village yoga center in Scottsdale, Arizona.
     Brooke Boone, RYT is the founder and director of Holy Yoga which uses yoga to help students to connect individually with Christ.
     Daniel DiTuro is a commercial and portrait photographer who is a regular yoga practitioner.
