Packed with over 800 unique poses performed by renowned practitioner Yogrishi Vishvketu, Yogasana is the most comprehensive yoga asana guide to date. The poses range from beginner to advanced levels, which makes this the perfect book for both the yoga novice and the studio owner.

Vishvketu, a lifelong yoga devotee who grew up in the Himalayan foothills, unveils the mystery surrounding the names of traditional yoga poses by listing each name in Sanskrit, Romanized Sanskrit, and English and providing guided translation charts. The reader gains an understanding of the rich historical and spiritual naming system behind each asana. Charts describing the properties of each chakra and a graphic indicator showing which chakras are activated by each pose help readers focus their practice and utilize the unique energetic essence of each asana.

With color-coded poses organized into a logical sequence with roots in both the traditional Himalayan system and Yogrishi Vishvketu's decades of practice, this yoga compendium brings together information about the physical exercise, the history of the practice, and the spiritual path of yoga in a single, all-inclusive volume.

"Yogrishi Vishvketu has become a very important teacher in my practice. I met him in Rishikesh at Anand Prakash Yoga Ashram some years ago and began to practice with him every morning. Since I have known him, he has shown wisdom in yogasana and meditation, and this shines through in his classes and inspires me to keep coming. His authenticity and sincere love for each student is tremendously inspiring. He is a Yogi who truly walks his talk. Watching him so mindfully compose this book has given me an appreciation of the legacy that he is leaving on this planet. As the world moves faster and faster and the variations of yogasana keep changing, this legacy and his authenticity will be appreciated in the years to come. I salute him with great love and gratitude for the gift he has given humanity."
—Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa, founder of Golden Bridge Yoga

"Yogasana by Yogrishi Vishvketu is a wonderful addition to the rich, ever-evolving experience-based yoga tradition. In this book, Yogrishi Vishvketu takes a new look at yoga from a holistic approach. He speaks about the physical postures and connects them back to their energetic counterparts by explaining the posture’s relation to the flow of energy in the body, the chakras, and how to align oneself with the cosmic energies of the universe.

Furthermore, this book is accessible to all. By taking a fresh look at the traditional terminology of yogasana and creating (or recreating) new names for the poses, and by providing the reader with the chakras and yantra symbols, Vishvketu allows readers to deepen their knowledge about yoga as a whole. He takes a new approach to teaching the poses—not organizing them by alphabetical order or by category, but rather by deeper root characteristics, which allows readers to follow the poses in a natural progression."
—H.H. Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji, president of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh, India

"In the sacred Himalayan hills of Rishikesh, on the banks of Mother Ganga, Yogrishi Vishvketu has masterfully excelled in the practice and teaching of yogasana. He is a gracious, kind, and open-hearted spiritual seeker—and a dear friend. I pray that Krishna may shower auspicious blessings upon him."
—Radhanath Swami, author of The Journey Home

"Yogrishi Vishvketu’s authenticity shines through each word on every page. He is that
rare yogi who lives and breathes the wisdom of these timeless teachings. He flows his transformational guidance in a pure, powerful, and inspirational way. "
—davidji, author of Secrets of Meditation

"What a treat to read through the thoughts, theories, and history that Yogi Vishvketu shares with such ease and grace. I have had the good fortune of spending some time in his presence, and I do not hesitate in saying that he is a gift to the modern yoga world. Though yoga is going through a very interesting and dynamic shift in theory and practice, it is of vital importance that we keep one foot firmly planted in the field of history, as it is what informs and influences all of what we experience today. Yogrishi Vishvketu provides a bridge between the historical and modern approaches, and does so in a manner that is humble, intriguing, and lovely to look at. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to deepen their experience of yogasana and the traditional practices available in the rich tapestry that is yoga."
Ted Grand, founder of Moksha Yoga

"Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses by Yogrishi Vishvketu is one of the most comprehensive volumes on yoga. The book is written in a way that honors the traditional yogic guru-disciple relationship. Few books of the same genre have been able to clearly explain yogasana step-by-step like this. I know this book will be of vital importance and use for yoga students, experienced practitioners, and spiritual seekers alike."
—Swami Amlanand Giri, founder of Tripura Yoga Ashram, Haridwar, India

"I congratulate and convey my blessings to Yogrishi Vishvketu for writing this practical yogasana encyclopedia. It is simple yet comprehensive. The book is absolutely relevant and helpful for people on the path of yoga education. It is full of wisdom, and the naming of the postures will help to bring clarity and remove all confusion about yogasana. I am very proud that our former student has reached such heights."
Dr. Surendra Kumar, Vice-Chancellor, Gurukula Kangri Vishwavidyalaya University, Haridwar, India

"My heartfelt congratulations to Yogrishi Vishvketu on the publication of this book. Vishvketu completed his MA and PhD in Yogic Sciences under my guidance, and was a hardworking and sincere student. I always believed he would have a bright future and contribute further to the field of Yogic Sciences. His new book, Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses, demonstrates an authentic knowledge of yogasana. The book is easy to follow and brings clarity to the naming and understanding of the postures. This book will be a great contribution to the global yoga community."
Professor Ishwar Bhardwaj, Head, Department of Human Consciousness & Yogic Science, Gurukula Kangri Vishwavidyalaya University, Haridwar, India

"To gain perspective on the vast knowledge of yoga, we have to see through the eyes of a master practitioner. Through Yogrishi Vishvketu’s book we have the opportunity to understand the wisdom of yoga in its true form. Yogrishi Vishvketu has brought the age-old wisdom of traditional yogic practice to the whole world, and this book is a must for all serious practitioners of yoga."
Dr. Anil K. Mehta, founder of Prakash Deep Institute of Ayurvedic Sciences, Haridwar, India

"Since he was a young boy, Yogrishi Vishvketu has shown a powerful leaning towards Yogic studies. At the age of six, he ran away from home, trying to find an ashram in which his life’s dharma could unfold. At eight years of age, he joined my gurukul (a residential school for Vedic learning), and he has spent the rest of his life living Yogic traditions. His book is a great inspiration for all yogis who wish to follow such an exemplary life. It is clear and concise. My best wishes to Yogrishi Vishvketu."
—Dr. Yogi Raj, founder & president of Gurukul Mahavidhyalaya Kanvashram, Uttarakhand, India

"It has been a pleasure to immerse myself in the Yogasana: The Encyclopedia of Yoga Poses by Yogrishi Vishvketu. It is clear that he has taken great effort in reviving the original names of asanas, many of which are not familiar today. The book contains a thorough compilation of yogasana, exploring a variety of poses and providing the tools to understand the meaning behind the pose names. As per authentic scriptures on Yoga, it is said that 8,400,000 asanas existed in ancient times, and we know only a few of them in the present day. Therefore, this venture is important, since there are not many authentic scriptures available today that reveal and identify asanas with their original Sanskrit names. Recently, there have been a few writers who try to interpret asanas in a wider sense; this book will be a great compliment to those efforts."
