See inside every yoga pose! With clear, expert instruction and full-color, detailed anatomical drawings, Yoga Anatomy depicts the most common asanas to provide a deeper understanding of the structures and principles underlying each movement and of yoga itself. From breathing to standing poses, see how each muscle is used, how slight alterations of a pose can enhance or reduce effectiveness, and how the spine, breathing, and body position are all fundamentally linked. Whether you are just beginning your journey or have been practicing yoga for years, Yoga Anatomy will be an invaluable resource one that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light. Author Leslie Kaminoff is a recognized expert and teacher in anatomy, breathing, and bodywork.

Review:

""This is an essential book for any serious student of yoga who delights in the details of asana."" "Yoga Journal" - October 2007 ""For a long time it was difficult to get anatomy books that were specifically designed for Yoga teachers. Anatomical textbooks were useful but did not help with questions directly related to Yoga. After 2003, however, a row of books were published that addressed Yoga anatomy....Then, in the spring of this year, L. Kaminoff's "Yoga Anatomy "was published. Like other books it is very helpful because it shows the use of specific muscles in certain poses. Unlike other books it also addresses questions of joint action, muscles working and lengthening, obstacles, breathing and variations. For a slim (and not very expensive) book the author has been able to compress a lot of information into a concise, clear and instructive format. I have found "Yoga Anatomy "to be a very helpful resource book, and I rarely prepare a class without consulting it."" Oda Lindner -- a YAA certified Yoga teacher November 2007 edition of "Bridge," (the publication of the Yoga Association of Alberta, Canada) "Plenty of books outline the fundamentals of yoga, but how many provide an illustrated anatomical guide to postures, movements and breathing techniques which blends anatomy with yoga moves? "Yoga Anatomy" offers a visual approach that allows learners to see how all the muscles interact during various poses. Chapters survey joint actions, poses, and how yoga helps various conditions. Any library strong in yoga or new age will find this anatomical approach specific and invaluable." Diane C. Donovan "California Bookwatch" 5-Star Review onAmazon.com "Interesting Reading on a Difficult Subject, January 3, 2008" Yoga Anatomy ("is the best book I have purchased on the subject. I have been practicing Yoga for about 33 years and teaching some classes during the 33 years. The illustrations are clear, concise and to the point for the asanas demonstrated. The book is well written and interesting. I recommend it to all Yoga Teachers and serious Yogis. I am registered to teach certification, if I pursue this," Yoga Anatomy "by Leslie Kaminoff will be one of the text books used in my class. Thank you for such a wonderful book on "Yoga Anatomy.
