Why this book was written
The first idea to write this book appeared quite long ago when, after some years of practicing yoga, I finally understood how asanas «work». After this unfortunately I found out that most of modern books on yoga give asanas the wrong way. The picture can be nice, but tiny
inaccuracies that only a professional can notice, make such performance useless. In one posture the back is not stretched enough, in the second one — the heap is sticking out, in the third one the pelvis or the neck is not straight.
From the point of view of gymnastics these are details, but, if you understand the energy aspects of asana, it is obvious, that such performance is not only useless, but to some extent harmful. So I wanted to get all those bad examples from many books and to explain what troubles may ensue from such practice. But the principles of ahimsa didn’t allow me to write such book.
