The book “Light on Yoga” contains 602 photos, it’s a treasure trove because Guruji’s photos are such an inspiration.
However, because the book covers so many asanas it’s difficult to find a photo of a specific pose. In order to help with quickly finding a photo, I prepared a short asanas index according to the asanas families.
The asanas index refers to the photo numbers and not the page numbers, and is therefore suitable to any edition of the book (in any language).
I recommend printing the index and pasting it onto the inner book cover. I find it very helpful with finding the necessary photo.

Paste a printout of the asanas index onto the inner book cover.
