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. 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. Beginners Light on Yoga by B.K.S. Iyengar Mission and Values You like to learn how to apply yoga to your daily life You are looking for a book that shows pose modifications You enjoy learning about anatomy You seek deeper spiritual meaning 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.

Many have more than one. If you have been practicing yoga for a few years or more, perhaps you can relate to this.

Sarah's description of meridian theory and how it so beautifully connects with yoga practice is unique and refreshing. The book's main focus is on yin yoga, and Sarah offers a number of yoga sequences that are designed to pressurize certain meridians and help heal specific organs, while dividing each yoga practice into a long and short version so you can more easily adapt them to your schedule. She completes this wonderfully written book with seated pranayama practices, basic Buddha dharma and suggested mindfulness meditations.
