Social You particularly enjoy yin yoga You want a book with color photos Community Yoga Challenge - September 2018 Forgot your password? Share this post You aren’t interested in inner exploration Home Click here to purchase The Yoga Bible from Amazon You seek deeper spiritual meaning 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. 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 don’t like learning about anatomy Interviews You like books with black and white illustrations and photos You are only interested in the physical side of yoga You don’t like inner exploration Community Yoga Challenge - September 2018 Mission and Values You enjoy yoga books that are short and sweet, sincere and down to earth Search You don’t want a book that focusses mostly on practical meditation techniques You are only interested in the physical side of yoga You like to learn about pose sequencing and creating themes in your practice You aren’t interested in inner exploration You don’t like learning about anatomy You would prefer an anatomy book that doesn't read like a text book Toggle navigation You don’t feel the need to better understand your psyche and belief system You prefer more information on alignment within the poses Community 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. 21 Mar Log in or register to post comments A Vessel of Blessing: Practical Guidance for Teachers Who Touch the Spirit in Yoga Practice by Arlene Bjork Eastern Body Western Mind by Anodea Judith You would benefit from a relatable explanation of the limbs of yoga You would like to learn more about yoga philosophy, bandhas and kriyas You like to learn about yourself Blog 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.
