Share this post 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. Password * You enjoy yoga books that are short and sweet, sincere and down to earth You want to learn about being more sensitive when doing yoga You are a yoga teacher looking to teach more than just the poses You particularly enjoy yin yoga Yoga Poses, Practice and Philosophy Click here to purchase Insight Yoga from Amazon Search Baron Baptiste is a wonderfully vibrant, down-to-earth yoga instructor who honors both the light and serious sides of yoga practice in this wonderful book on yoga. It’s inspirational feel throughout engages the reader and Baron’s bare bones approach to yoga makes it relevant to everyone, no matter where you are in your practice. Baron will help you see your practice differently, discover how your experience on the mat relates to your life overall and help you feel more empowered by giving you practical tools that you can put into action in your daily practice. Click here to purchase Insight Yoga from Amazon You find you learn better when there are good photos to look at You prefer a book that focuses mostly on philosophy, not asanas You don’t like books that don’t stay open Mission and Values 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. Yoga Poses You are an instructor and want to teach with a stronger focus on anatomy Bloopers and Outtakes Yoga and Functional Anatomy Peak Pose Challenges Home Perfectly Imperfect: The Art and Soul of Yoga Practice with Baron Baptiste You would benefit from a book that summarizes yoga and yoga poses A Path with Heart: A Guide Through the Perils and Promises of Spiritual Life with Jack Kornfield Grateful You would appreciate information that is well written and succinct You like to learn how to apply yoga to your daily life You enjoy trying practical techniques in meditation and in your daily life You like to learn about yoga philosophy and how they apply to practice 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 prefer a book that goes into more depth with philosophy and practice Get Started! Instant karma by helping us give free yoga to your fellow yogis You enjoy inner exploration 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. Social Remember me Testimonials This book is a personal reflection on the life and philosophy of one of the most talented teachers of our time. Arlene Bjork had a way of inspiring and guiding her students to explore the deeper truths and aspects of yoga, while offering true insight into how to incorporate yoga in all aspects of your life and how a regular practice will enhance your experience of living. If you are a teacher, you will learn to make a more profound connection with your students, one that will manifest both on and off the mat. In addition, it offers a personable interpretation of all the aspects of yoga philosophy that often seem inaccessible to most practitioners. You are not interested in teaching yoga to others Namaste!
