18 by 24 inch yoga asana chart based on the system of asana given by the great philosopher and spiritual authority P. R. Sarkar. This info is borrowed from the Ananda Marga website:

"In the West we have come to equate the term “yoga” with yoga postures, but in fact they form only a small – albeit important – part of the whole system. The term “yoga” in fact implies a whole way of life which includes yoga postures as one of its many facets.
In Sanskrit, yoga postures are called asanas. Asana means “a posture giving physical comfort and mental composure.” Asanas affect the glands, nerves, muscles and all the organs of the body. There are many physical benefits, but the most important effect is on the mind. The practice of asanas places pressure on the endocrine glands, and this results in the regulation of hormones secreted from those glands. The hormones affect the emotions, and the resultant emotional balance facilitates concentration and meditation. So asanas help prepare the mind for meditation.
Benefits of Asanas
• Balance the hormone secretions from the glands. • Give flexibility to the body. • Improve respiration, as well as blood and lymph circulation. • Massage the internal organs. • Detoxify the joints. • Relax the nerves and muscles. • Cure diseases.
While practicing asanas the body should be cool and calm. The stomach should not be full. The room should be clean and warm, and there should be no smoke in the air. Except for the meditation postures, asanas should not be practiced during menstruation or pregnancy. In general, asanas should only be practiced on the advice of a proper teacher.
Spread a blanket or mat on the floor and try these simple and effective asanas:"
