Test Your Knowledge of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika

Considered one of the three main traditional hatha yoga texts, the Hatha Yoga Pradipika comprises four chapters which discuss asana (yoga postures), pranayama (breathing practices), mudras (“gestures” or “seals”), and samadhi (the state of enlightenment that many yogis strive to reach).

While many other texts within the yoga tradition describe the spiritual or mental experience of yoga without offering a clear “how to,” hatha yoga texts such as the Pradipika outline clear, specific, and concrete practices with explanations of both the how and the why of practice.

Whether you have read the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, want to get a glimpse of the concepts it offers, or just want to test your knowledge of traditional hatha yoga teachings, give this quiz a try!
