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.

I am so grateful for this website which allow me to practise yoga at home. I attend classes as well but find these online classes offer a variety of styles and allow me to do more yoga more often. I regularly do the yoga nidra and meditation sessions. Thank you to all who provide this service.
Yoga and Functional Anatomy I started with you all a few years ago and have wandered away looking at other yoga programs on line. In the end I come back to you . The kindness and support of all your instructors is evident even through the barrier of a computer monitor. At almost 62 and having lived a sedentary life from 2001 - 2012, I have used a bicycle and your classes to move me away from obesity, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Thank you for all you do.
Click here to purchase The Yoga Bible from Amazon 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.

Shoulder Strength and Stability Community Don’t buy this yoga book if: Click here to purchase Anatomy of Hatha Yoga from Amazon David Procyshyn's blog 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.

You don’t need to learn about how yoga relates to the energy systems Every yogi has a story of how a yoga book completely transformed their yoga practice. Many have more than one. If you have been practicing yoga for a few years or more, perhaps you can relate to this. A shift in perspective, a new way of looking at things or a different way of practicing can alter your experience on your yoga mat and in your life, enough that you feel somewhat different – more inspired, lighter… dare I say enlightened?
