Yoga Poses, Practice and Philosophy Yoga Classes This list of books has been wonderful! I love anatomy, and I have really enjoyed David Keil's anatomy book. I'm planning to start David Coulter's anatomy book soon. I'm learning so much, and it's really transforming the way I think about my body when I do yoga (and ride horses - my other great love!). You don’t like learning about anatomy Forum You like to learn how to apply yoga to your daily life Every yogi has a story of how a yoga book completely transformed their yoga practice. Many have more than one. If you have been practicing yoga for a few years or more, perhaps you can relate to this. A shift in perspective, a new way of looking at things or a different way of practicing can alter your experience on your yoga mat and in your life, enough that you feel somewhat different – more inspired, lighter… dare I say enlightened? You are looking for a comprehensive guide to yoga poses Social You don’t like books that don’t stay open You enjoy learning about the body’s systems Understanding functional anatomy has the potential of transforming not only your practice, but your relationship to your body. This is by far the most impressive guide to functional anatomy and yoga that I have seen to date. David's unique approach makes learning about anatomy easy for anyone, while completely satisfying anatomy geeks who love to learn all they can about muscles and bones. The manual begins with basic principles of functional anatomy, then helps you understand how they work within many of the yoga asanas.  David's descriptions allow you to feel what he’s saying in your own body. There is so much to learn from this book that it could very well be your go-to yoga anatomy reference manual for years to come. Functional Anatomy of Yoga: A Guide for Practitioners and Teachers by David Keil Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners by H. David Coulter Help Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice with Baron Baptiste You prefer a book that focuses mostly on philosophy, not asanas You like to explore different approaches to doing yoga A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life with Jack Kornfield You want to understand how to live your yoga You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master Many students find Donna Farhi’s Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit to be an invaluable part of their yoga journey. Donna provides a way to experience yoga in a more complete way, allowing the asanas to come to life through ‘seven moving principles’: namely breathe, yield, radiate, center, support, align and engage. With an impressive section on the mechanics of movement, beautiful photos (including what not to do) and yoga pose sections divided into standing poses, seated poses, back bends, arm balances, restorative poses and yoga breathing practices, Donna’s Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit will teach you so much about the practice of yoga, whether you are a student or an instructor. Light on Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar You like to explore different approaches to doing yoga Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates Forum Peak Pose Challenges Monthly Update - September 2018 You don’t want a book that blends eastern philosophy and western medicine You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses You like to explore different approaches to doing yoga Social You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master Get access to bonus, subscriber-only videos Featuring over 170 yoga postures, this book is an illustrated, step-by-step guide to achieving each posture, including how to move into the pose, the gaze, build-up poses, counter poses, how to lighten the pose and its effects on the body and mind. The Yoga Bible also has a general introduction to yoga, including what yoga is, some yoga philosophy, common styles and suggestions around getting the best out of your practice. You could say that this is the best comprehensive yoga pocket book that exists – although, you need a very big pocket to fit it in! You are experiencing problems and would like to try to understand why You enjoy trying practical techniques in meditation and in your daily life Login You want a brief summary of yoga rather than something that goes into detail Mission and Values You appreciate simple explanations and photos (black and white) You are looking for a detailed, comprehensive guide to yoga Instant karma by helping us give free yoga to your fellow yogis You are an instructor and want to teach with a stronger focus on anatomy Get access to bonus, subscriber-only videos Get access to bonus, subscriber-only videos Events You would like to be more mindful You don’t like inner exploration You would like to better understand your psyche and belief system Meditations Insight Yoga by Sarah Powers You don’t care about being more mindful You find you learn better when there are good photos to look at All you want is a guide to doing asanas Latest Blog Posts You don’t like learning new approaches to yoga practice Contact Yoga Classes We have divided them into 3 categories: Yoga Poses, Practice and Philosophy (6 books), Yoga and Functional Anatomy (2 books) and Meditation, Psychology and Transformation (4 books). For each book we include a brief but detailed description, then complete each review with the reasons why you may want to buy, or not buy, this book. Let us know if you have any that you would like to recommend or if you have any questions or feedback, by posting below.    Beautifully laid out, this synthesis of wisdom traditions is filled with a generous amount of information, photos and insights. Sarah's description of meridian theory and how it so beautifully connects with yoga practice is unique and refreshing. The book's main focus is on yin yoga, and Sarah offers a number of yoga sequences that are designed to pressurize certain meridians and help heal specific organs, while dividing each yoga practice into a long and short version so you can more easily adapt them to your schedule. She completes this wonderfully written book with seated pranayama practices, basic Buddha dharma and suggested mindfulness meditations.
