This is begging to be made into a poster. Thank you!
a poster!!!! i would buy that!
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. 🙂
Thank you, Even! Yup, that’s exactly why I made it. Because color-coding helps me learn.
Thank you for creating this and sharing it. It is wonderful!
Thank you for your kind words! ❤
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.
beautiful modern infographics, and old yogic philosophy. well done. and agreed on the poster must.
Wow, agree with all comments above. Thanks!
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. 🙂
Guilty as charged. 🙂
Hey dolls! I just posted a new version of the chart on the blog! 🙂
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. Between you and Leslie Kaminoff and others, the record will be set straight about the lengthy, complex history of the practice of yoga. Thanks for this awesome graphic, Alison!
