You find you learn better when there are good photos to look at Toggle navigation You find you learn better when there are good photos to look at You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master H. David Coulter's Anatomy of Hatha Yoga is possibly the most comprehensive yoga anatomy book that exists. It reads, at times, like an anatomy or physiology text book, moving through an impressive detailed analysis of movement and posture, breathing and abdominopelvic exercises before taking that same approach to analyze standing poses, backbending poses, forward bending postures, twisting postures, headstand, shoulderstand and finishing with relaxation and meditation. It's a thick book (almost 600 pages) and extremely dense with information, which is guaranteed to satisfy the most dedicated anatomy nerd. Although it definitely wouldn't be considered an easy read, it is, for the most part, surprisingly accessible for the average person. You would appreciate information that is well written and succinct About us You prefer more information on alignment within the poses You are looking for a book that shows pose modifications You are experiencing problems and would like to try to understand why LReyle 1 year ago This list of books has been wonderful!

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!).
