84 Yoga Asanas, by Buddha Bose

84 Yoga Asanas, by Buddha Bose

I just pledged to this Kickstarter project. This should be a fascinating book that sheds light on the origins of Bikram Yoga. Buddha Bose, like Bikram Choudhury, was one of Bishnu Ghosh’s star pupils.

In 1923 Sri Bishnu Charan Ghosh founded the Ghosh’s College of Physical Education. He trained students in Yogic Physical Culture, a combination of Indian and Western practices for the health of body and mind. Ghosh had many students, including the well known Bikram Choudhury, but before Bikram there was another star student and protege, Buddha Bose.

Bose made such progress under Ghosh’s tutelage that within six months, he was asked to perform asana and give demonstrations in front of large crowds. Bose went on to write and publish the book Key to the Kingdom of Health through Hatha Yoga Vol. 1, which details 24 foundational asanas. It was unknown whether Volume 1 was part of a larger collection.

Until now.
