Let us know if you have any that you would like to recommend or if you have any questions or feedback, by posting below.    You want a brief summary of yoga rather than something that goes into detail You would like to be more mindful You like to look more deeply into your experience within a yoga pose You don’t care about being more mindful You prefer a book that lists poses in a structured way, with detailed guidance 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 want a book that blends eastern philosophy and western medicine You don’t mind simple, black and white photos You aren’t interested in inner exploration You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master Contact You want beautiful, glossy, color photos You would benefit from a relatable explanation of the limbs of yoga This classic yoga manual by BKS Iyengar is a comprehensive and detailed book on yoga philosophy, bandhas, kriyas, pranayama and a step-by-step guide for each asana. Written by someone who many consider to be a yoga master, it has an ancient feel to it, as though the concepts have been carried through from yoga's origins. The images are even slightly grainy. The poses progress through the book from beginner to advanced and finish with yoga courses and curative asanas for various diseases.

Eastern Body, Western Mind is no exception – it’s wonderfully written and provides countless thoughtful moments and epiphanies. It is not just a book to read, it is a ‘workbook’ for healing the soul’s wounds that have accumulated over a lifetime and an attempt to teach you how to live in a healthier, more balanced and self-loving way. Buy this yoga book if: You love learning about your body, how you move and why Insight Yoga by Sarah Powers Skip to main content You do not enjoy reading about anatomy and physiology Click here to puchase Yoga Mind, Body and Spirit from Amazon 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.
