Nowadays the publications on yoga are not scarce. On the contrary, quite a lot of published books cover a wide range of areas that are in the focus of yoga. Despite the yoga popularity, the connection of yoga and ayurveda is relatively neglected. Yoga and ayurveda, which not only have a common cultural and historical roots, but also the philosophical grounds and similar perception of the world and the life itself, are closely connected. This can be clearly perceived in the original texts in which the boundaries between these two systems sometimes almost disappear. You could even say that the two also discuss the same question, but each from a slightly different perspective. Therefore, the two choose a different approach and a different practical techniques.
The guide of yoga postures that you have in hand was created as a practical tool for students of ayur yoga: for those who make the effort to understand yoga and its techniques from the ayurveda perspective, as well as to understand how yoga can be used in ayurvedic diagnosis and treatment so that both form a comprehensive system. Although yoga is a complex system in which yoga postures, or asanas, constitute only one of its parts, this ayuryoga guide focuses primarily at them. The reason is the fact that asanas are relatively easy presented in a pictorial form and also because at the beginning of yoga studies asanas are often the very foundation of yoga practice. In the system of Raja Yoga only Yama and Niyama come before them. In hatha yoga, asanas are in the first place.
This atlas presents different asanas starting with the simple ones, preparing the body for more challenging postures, to those that already require some flexibility and strength. In addition to their name, the overall effect of each posture on the body and mind is mentioned. These specific asanas represent a comprehensive system in its own way, working gradually with all important parts of our body and preparing it for meditation postures.
We wish this Ayuryoga guide atlas has become a useful tool on your path of discovery.
