You appreciate simple explanations and photos (black and white) You are not interested in teaching yoga to others Social You are an instructor and want to teach with a stronger focus on anatomy 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. You don’t care about being more mindful Password * Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners by H. David Coulter A Vessel of Blessing: Practical Guidance for Teachers Who Touch the Spirit in Yoga Practice by Arlene Bjork You don’t mind simple, black and white photos All of the yoga books below have that potential. Each one grabs you in a different way and teaches you something new about yourself, about yoga and about life. We hope that this guide will help you choose the book that is ideal for you at this moment, or will help you choose the perfect book for a friend, colleague or family member who also loves yoga. You aren’t interested in learning about how your body works You are looking for a detailed, comprehensive guide to yoga You are only interested in the physical side of yoga You prefer more information on alignment within the poses You are looking for a book that shows pose modifications or sequencing Click here to purchase A Path with Heart from Amazon  You would benefit from a book that summarizes yoga and yoga poses 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. Community Yoga Challenge - September 2018 Improve your practice with exclusive challenges and programs You like to challenge yourself Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners by H. David Coulter You would prefer an anatomy book that doesn't read like a text book 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. Thank you!
