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. Baron Baptiste is a wonderfully vibrant, down-to-earth yoga instructor who honors both the light and serious sides of yoga practice in this wonderful book on yoga. It’s inspirational feel throughout engages the reader and Baron’s bare bones approach to yoga makes it relevant to everyone, no matter where you are in your practice. Baron will help you see your practice differently, discover how your experience on the mat relates to your life overall and help you feel more empowered by giving you practical tools that you can put into action in your daily practice. Improve your practice with exclusive challenges and programs Yoga: The Spirit and Practice of Moving Through Stillness by Erich Schiffmann You enjoy learning about anatomy 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.

Gates weaves stories of his own remarkable healing and growth with the yoga sutras of Patanjali, and provides illuminating and moving explanations of how yoga teachings apply to real-life situations.
