Photo requests[edit]

This page needs the addition of suitable images, including images for both Tadasana, and its variations.

One set of CG images for a variation of Tadasana is available here and is part of the creative commons, however, suitable media for other positions and information should be found. Any suggestions, or additions would be greatly appreciated in this and other yoga articles. Supaiku (talk) 21:36, 16 March 2012 (UTC)

Further Reading and External Links[edit]

Given the recent additions to this article in the form of citations, images, etc, I do not think that these sections are necessary. The Further Reading is not necessary given the books cited and listen in the Sources section. The external links is badly formatted, and includes links which can be found easily via a search engine as they are general information pages. I have preserved the information in the editing comments (edit to view).

By removing the citations in the further reading section you could have broken a large number of citations. Further reading section not only helps establish notability, it also provides a bridge to improving the article quality though the introduction of more citations. Thus the recommended action is, simply put, to link to the listed texts converting them to citations.
There are still about eight broken / missing citation sources reffered to by SFN templates which are need immediate attention. BO | Talk 12:35, 1 January 2013 (UTC)
