You don’t want to read about buddhist philosophy User Login Yoga Poses You are not interested in teaching yoga to others You value a book that is written by someone who is considered a master Click here to purchase Eastern Body Western Mind from Amazon You like to challenge yourself You particularly enjoy yin yoga Yoga Challenges Click here to purchase Light on Yoga from Amazon Our Teachers You don’t want a book that blends eastern philosophy and western medicine You enjoy daily, thought-provoking quotes or stories You do not enjoy reading about anatomy and physiology 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.
