  1. this is great, reminds me of the clarity that can be seen in the information is beautiful projects…
    now we know why sometimes this is hard to imagine/visualize/understand upon first thought. 🙂

  2. This is just amazing. Thank you so much for taking the time to do this. Very cool!

    Do you take humble requests? Beryl Bender Birch via Norman Allen. She has done so much to bring yoga to the West, and has been teaching this amazing practice with compassion for over 30 years, to many, many thousands of people. She deserves a spot on your chart.

  3. Thank you so much for this, it’s absolutely beautiful and so nice to have a visual! And while the didn’t do much to advance the practice, I totally love that despite all of the yogis through time who didn’t “make the cut”, you left in The Beatles. 🙂

  4. So timely! I reposted my original blog post about this poster (got that?) after the recent William J. Broad assertion that hatha yoga began as a Tantric sex cult.
