All Yoga Postures
We have created an asana library to make it easier for you to search for postures, and to give you more details about each pose and how to get in and out of them. You can look up different categories so that it’s easier for you to put together your own practice sequence so that you can work with your body in the way you want to. Where possible we have included contraindications and explained ways that you can modify poses to be more suitable for the level you are at. This can be particularly useful if you are coming to yoga after injury so that you can approach practice safely.
If there are poses you would like to see that we have not yet included let us know and we will try to write about them in the future.
