Your Illustrated Guide to Postures, Movements, and breathing Techniques
With more than a million copies sold, Yoga Anatomy has become an invaluable resource for yoga practitioners, enthusiasts, and instructors around the world. Expanded and updated, the third edition of Yoga Anatomy will provide you with an even deeper understanding of yoga and of the structures and principles underlying each movement. This revamped edition features new content to further augment your yoga practice:
A new chapter offering history and context for the idea that anatomy is a story
Updated chapters on the skeletal and muscular systems
A new chapter on the nervous system that outlines its key functions and roles in the body
Significantly expanded breathing and spine chapters to address disc anatomy and damage as well as back pain
Newly added Cueing Callouts to provide tips and advice on teaching or performing a pose
New stick figure icons to simply depict the alignment of each pose for quick reference
A Breathing Inquiry section with each asana to illuminate the connection between breathing and a movement practice
This beautifully illustrated resource sorts yoga poses into six sections - standing, sitting, kneeling, supine, prone, and arm supports - and provides an inside look into each pose to offer a better understanding of the interactions of the muscles, joints, and nervous system that we use to create movement and breathing.
