Iyengar You feel the way you do yoga now is fine You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master You are experiencing problems and would like to try to understand why You don’t care about being more mindful You like to explore different approaches to doing yoga Improve your practice with exclusive challenges and programs Search You don’t like to read daily quotes or short stories You don’t want a book that blends eastern philosophy and western medicine 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. Challenges You like to learn how to apply yoga to your daily life You prefer a book that goes into more depth with philosophy and practice Meditations from the Mat offers 365 daily meditations that help integrate mindfulness into everyday life. Each day's reflection begins with a thought-provoking quote and then explores one intriguing aspect of yoga philosophy. Gates weaves stories of his own remarkable healing and growth with the yoga sutras of Patanjali, and provides illuminating and moving explanations of how yoga teachings apply to real-life situations. Whether read in the morning to set the tone for the day, during yoga, or at the end of the day, Meditations from the Mat will support and enhance anyone’s yoga journey.
