It has repeatedly been said that Yoga should not be practiced apart from under the direct guidance of a, Guru. This is certainly true of more elaborate, higher phases of Yoga, but there are certain, aspects of Yoga which can be learned through the printed word and by photos and diagrams., Yoga philosophy and psychology, hygiene and diet, instructions in Pranayama and basic, Asanas plus encouragement to embark upon the Yogic Path are all areas of learning that can, be passed along by the written word. The written word is never a substitute for direct contact, with a Yoga Guru and study in his presence, but there are few today who can afford the time, and the cost of travel to have the rich blessing of the Guru's presence or to live in his Ashram.
