Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff
This book provides detailed anatomical information to help yoga practitioners of all levels develop and expand their practice.
The book is an excellent resource for any yoga student who wants to understand how his or her body works in poses, with tips on how to avoid injuries and improve posture.
Whether you are new to yoga or have been practicing for years, Yoga Anatomy can help you deepen your knowledge and continue making progress.
Written by Leslie Kaminoff, one of today’s top yoga instructors, and illustrated by Kathryn Budig—an experienced teacher who spent over 10 years working at a well-known Iyengar studio—this book takes a unique approach to explaining anatomy through the lens of yoga.
If you are interested in learning about more than just your postures and techniques, if you would like to go deeper into understanding how yoga can affect your life, Kaminoff’s book is a good place to start.
This book includes anatomical information, including scientific facts about how different poses work on specific parts of your body. It also provides useful information for injury prevention.
Many people consider Kaminoff’s book one of the best books on yoga in general.
When you’re just starting out, it can be easy to focus on things like handstands and other impressive poses.
However, what you do in between poses is just as important. Kaminoff’s book shows readers how to understand their body in order to achieve more difficult moves while simultaneously reducing their risk of injury.
The book also goes beyond a listing of poses and introduces plenty of yoga sequences that help beginner yogis slowly build strength and flexibility while still enjoying a deep relaxation session.
While a few yoga books include some anatomical elements, none of them explore human movement as thoroughly or make it as accessible to yoga students and teachers.
This book blends over 400 photographic illustrations with easy-to-read explanations of how bones, muscles, tendons, and other connective tissues work together in various poses.
The result is an amazingly clear understanding of how you can use specific anatomical details to address common problems and improve your practice. Without a doubt, one of the best books on yoga for beginners and advanced users alike.
