Publisher Comments:

Get an inside look at the body's muscles at work during yoga

Anatomy for Yoga provides an in-depth tour of muscles as you progress through yoga exercises. The detailed four-color anatomical illustrations depict exactly what happens to the body's muscles and skeletal system while performing these incredibly spine-intensive movements. This book is divided into sequences, 10 to 20 poses each, and involve specific stretches/mobilizing for that particular postural imbalance as well as strengthening. The sequences cover an entire routine, which could last from 30 minutes to an hour or longer.

In addition, there is a breathing practice and a related meditation practice. You will be able to use the basic skills in the early chapters and, as your abilities develop, apply them to more advanced techniques featured later in the book.

  • Full-color anatomical illustrations that detail the muscles engaged.
  • Gives you the information you need, and shows you exactly what's going on with their body as they exercise.
  • Build a routine custom to their abilities.
