    The Ashtanga Yoga Book by Caroline Klebl is an inspirational guide to the practice of hundreds of Yoga Postures. Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic practice of Yoga postures, which are connected by Vinyasa or breath initiated movements, which link one posture to the next. Ashtanga Yoga quickly builds strength, increases flexibility and improves cardiovascular fitness. The practice of Ashtanga Yoga eliminates disease, strengthens the body, mind and sense organs, induces a deeply meditative state and creates a clear connection between the individual and universal self. This method was imparted by Vamana Rishi in the Yoga Korunta, a sacred ancient text and has been passed down in disciplic succession for thousands of years. This method consists of a Primary, Intermediate and Advanced series of Yoga postures and a Pranayama (breath control) sequence. In this book, Caroline Klebl describes the method of practice of the Primary and Intermediate Series. The Primary Series is referred to as Yoga Chikitsa or Yoga Therapy and is designed to strengthen the body and eliminate disease. The Intermediate Series is called Nadi Shodhana or the cleansing of the subtle energy channels, which underlie the physical form. The Primary and Intermediate series of Yoga postures must be practiced for many years, before the Advanced postures and Pranayama sequence can be practiced effectively.
