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. You would like to learn more about yoga philosophy, bandhas and kriyas You don’t mind simple, black and white photos You do not enjoy reading about anatomy and physiology Monthly Update - July 2018 You love learning about anatomy You like suggestions for yoga sessions, split into short and long options You aren’t interested in inner exploration You want beautiful, glossy, color photos Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit - A Return to Wholeness by Donna Farhi Blogs That completes our review of some of our favorite books on yoga.
