Product Description

Yoga isn’t easily defined — there is so much history, so many types and the concepts overlap — you really need a map to help you sort it out. We searched for a long time and didn’t find one, so we built it ourselves. This 24 x 36 in (609.6 x 914.4 mm) poster is the first work of its kind to place the major concepts, types and history of yoga together in a single, visual overview of the practice.

The Yoga Poster Features

  • It expresses the main philosophical concepts behind yoga
  • Differentiates and covers the major paths, traditions and styles of yoga
  • Explains the relevance of major historical periods and major texts to and within yoga,
  • Describes the particular actions you do and the relevant terminology you hear in yoga
  • Places everything within a cohesive, easy to follow metaphor centered on a stylized banyan tree (a tropical fig tree sacred in yoga literature).
  • The “yoga tree” is rooted in yoga’s ancient past (BCE — Before Common Era or, also known as BC — Before Christ) and reaches upwards, through yoga’s evolutionary history towards a stylized depiction of the earth’s atmosphere, which represents the boundaries of the physical world.
