Testimonials A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life with Jack Kornfield Click here to purchase Meditations from the Mat from Amazon You like to learn about yourself You would like to try to feel better using meditation You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses You like to look more deeply into your experience within a yoga pose Yoga Styles Search form You are only interested in the physical side of yoga You don’t want a book that focusses mostly on practical meditation techniques Password * 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 are looking for hatha, restorative or vinyasa yoga sequences You would prefer an anatomy book that doesn't read like a text book Bloopers and Outtakes Share this post You would like to try to feel better using meditation You prefer a book that focuses mostly on philosophy, not asanas Jack Kornfield’s popular ‘A Path with Heart’ is both an introduction to Buddhist practice as well as an easy to follow guide to meditation, the process of inner transformation and the integration of a spiritual practice into a western way of life. Jack Kornfield is a spiritual teacher, psychologist and meditation master who approaches difficult issues like addiction, psychological and emotional healing and relationship issues with warmth, grace and compassion. He fills this book with practical techniques, guided meditations, stories and other gems of wisdom that can help ease your journey on your life path.
