You don’t like learning about anatomy Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates Share this post You like to learn about pose sequencing and creating themes in your practice Eastern Body Western Mind by Anodea Judith Skip to main content Eastern Body Western Mind by Anodea Judith Remember me You don’t like inner exploration Improve your practice with exclusive challenges and programs Not Found 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.
