Hatha Yoga

Yogi Ramacharaka

Hatha Yoga.
Download (Free)

FREE to download. This is a wonderful opportunity. This is gem of an old Yoga book on healthy living, diet and personal hygiene! It covers in some detail; correct breathing, relaxation, and even postures within daily life. Although Hatha Yoga was written just over a hundred years ago, its teachings are as accurate today as they were then and may offer some insight into just how diminished some yoga practices have become in recent years. Much of this book may well be very revealing to modern students.
