Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners

by

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 2002 Benjamin Franklin Award in the category of Health, Wellness, and Nutrition, this authoritative book correlates the practice and discipline of yoga with modern anatomy and physiology. 230 photographs. 120+ diagrams & anatomical illustrations.

Book News Annotation:

Coulter, who received a PhD in anatomy in 1968, and has taught in numerous contexts since then, has also been a student of yoga since the 1970s. Here he conjoins his two areas of expertise. After discussion of basic premises regarding yoga practice—focusing attention, becoming aware of breath, moving into and out of postures, responding to pain—he discusses movement and posture, breathing, and abdominopelvic exercises, and then explores in detail the various standing, backbending, forward bending, twisting, and inverted postures, as well as relaxation and meditation. In his densely packed explications and descriptions, he variously addresses yoga teachers, yoga students, and medical practitioners; and this leaping about from audience to audience lends a clutter to the presentation. Still, there's valuable information here for readers in all three groups.

Synopsis:

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga is the only modern authoritative source that correlates the study of hatha yoga with anatomy and physiology. Yoga teachers and students, personal trainers, medical therapists, or anyone who is curious or troubled about how the body responds to stretching and exercise will find in this book a cornucopia — partly new and partly old — of readable and reliable information. It was written and edited to meet the needs of a general audience largely unschooled in the biomechanical sciences, and yet to attract and challenge the interests of the medical profession. This book features 230 black and white photographs and more than 120 diagrams and anatomical illustrations.
