Light on Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar Click here to purchase Insight Yoga from Amazon You like to learn about yoga philosophy and how they apply to practice You are looking for a comprehensive guide to yoga poses Click here to purchase Eastern Body Western Mind from Amazon Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates You enjoy inner exploration You like suggestions for yoga sessions, split into short and long options 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 like to look more deeply into your experience within a yoga pose Log in or register to post comments AndyG 1 year ago Join The DoYogaWithMe Community Every yogi has a story of how a yoga book completely transformed their yoga practice.
