I created this page to make it more convenient to find all the postures on this site on one page without going through the entire Sitemap. Click on links below to get more instructions for each posture listed. Each posture is listed separately and as a group where indicated. Postures are indicated for specific Chakras, taken from Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Yoga Sutras (Patanjali), from Eugenia Basilewsky (my teacher), from my own favorites, and many are included in my YogaNata (Nata = dance) from my DVD.
