These 18 asanas were selected by Babaji from among the thousands which exist to form an efficient system for rejuvenating the physical body and preparing it for the more subtle phases of his Kriya Yoga. The immortal Himalayan master is living proof of their effectiveness. Each asana has several stages, making them suitable for the beginner and experienced student. The asanas are also arranged in pairs, or counterposes, facilitating the relaxation stage following each asana. This guide is designed as a handbook, where in each stage in each asana is individually illustrated, and explained with easy to follow instructions. The numerous benefits of each asana in the healing and prevention of various functional disorders are also indicated. An introductory chapter explains the principles to follow in their practice.
