Great book. Illustrations very clear and helpful. I just wish it had photos with arrows designating the anatomy along with the illustrations.

Love all my yoga stuff, all oif it...everything!

Makes postures easy to accomplish because of the detailed description. As a physician I can understand the anatomy of the musculature involved in the poses.

This book is organized around various posture types. I thought I knew mine, but I discovered that I was wrong. I have a completely different posture type and the poses mapped out for me by this book have really made a difference in my awareness and stance. I think it would be great to build a series of classes around this. I have recommended it to several friends. Everyone can benefit from this posture inventory and suggested corrective measures.

However, the title of the book is a bit misleading...and I think doesn't do the book justice. It is not a reference text book on yoga anatomy like David Coulter book, Leslie Kaminoff book or the Key Poses/Muscles books. It is focused and intentional rather than being a general reference text. I'd say it is a must for all hatha instructors
Although the cover for this book is unassuming, don't be fooled. I received a copy for review and honestly based on the cover would not have given this book a second look. Yes, I know you should not judge a book by its cover. But I am swimming in a vast sea of yoga books where any person who even saw a yoga class on TV feels compelled to write a book on how yoga has changed their life and can help you too. Honestly most writers are not re-inventing the wheel. Yoga is a thousand year old practice and the great yogic texts were written long ago.

So what do I look for in a yoga book I would be willing to pay to add to my collection? Clear, concise dissemination of useful knowledge. Anatomy for Yoga delivers. The illustrations are clear and uncluttered - main muscles identified and their action in some of the most frequent class asanas. What I really appreciated and could have used a few years back were the first dozen pages that breakdown anatomical terminology, movement planes, joint movements, biomechanics and more. This information is well presented and very clear - especially to someone like me who is not a fan of charts or verbose paragraphs. The authors hit the length right on, they give enough detail to get the point across but not too much to overwhelm or bore.
