Yoga can be practiced in places other than the home or yoga class, but no one wants to lug around a full-sized, soup-to-nuts book everywhere one goes. Sometimes all you need is a book of poses and a few routines you can practice at work, on a business trip, or while vacationing. 108 seemed like the perfect number!

In India, the number 108 is sacred, suggesting completeness and wholeness. There are 108 shepherdesses (gopn) devoted to Lord Krishna, 108 holy places of the Vaishnavas, 108 beads on the Hindu and Buddhist rosary, and there also are said to be 108 Upanishads (though there are actually more).

The list goes on, but in The Pocket Idiot's Guide to 108 Yoga Poses, readers will find:

  • 108 yoga poses for the home, office, and travel.
  • Highly illustrated, with clear and detailed figures showing exactly how to do the poses.
  • Concise explanations for what the poses achieve.
  • Routines that make use of the poses.
