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.

Blogs Functional Anatomy of Yoga: A Guide for Practitioners and Teachers by David Keil Share this post Community Yoga Challenge - September 2018 You would prefer an anatomy book that doesn't read like a text book You want to learn about being more sensitive when doing yoga Meditations from the Mat: Daily Reflections on the Path of Yoga by Rolf Gates Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners by H. David Coulter You would appreciate information that is well written and succinct You don’t want a book that blends eastern philosophy and western medicine Click here to purchase Perfectly Imperfect from Amazon 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. 12 Essential Yoga Books to Inspire You and Your Yoga Practice You would like to better understand your psyche and belief system We have divided them into 3 categories: Yoga Poses, Practice and Philosophy (6 books), Yoga and Functional Anatomy (2 books) and Meditation, Psychology and Transformation (4 books).
