12 Essential Yoga Books to Inspire You and Your Yoga Practice You like suggestions for yoga sessions, split into short and long options You love learning about your body, how you move and why You would like to learn more about yoga philosophy, bandhas and kriyas You don’t like to read daily quotes or short stories 12 Essential Yoga Books to Inspire You and Your Yoga Practice You are not interested in teaching yoga to others 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. Thank you! You don’t mind simple, black and white photos H.
