Thanks for telling us about the problem. As the third millennium begins, Anatomy of Hatha Yoga is the only modern authoritative source that correlates the study of hatha yoga with anatomy and physiology. Overall, I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in yoga and wants to gain all the physical benefits from doing it properly!
We anxtomy familiar with each pose very deeply, down to each muscle, each bone and tendon used. I wish there was a video series where everything would be shown practically.
Great book to have on your shelf, especially in combination with the “Anatomy Colouring Book”. Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more.

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners
What did I like about it? David Coulter No preview available – Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions x x This book is not exactly a page turner, but it is definitely my most used reference book for understanding the body, how hatha yoga can strengthen your anatomical functions and keeps all those feel good hormones and chemicals healthy and busy. A good anatomy book, actually is my first one but I found a little too much clulter and in some points was way too much for me, I’m an intermediate level yoga student and maybe with the fact that actually I never took part on a teacher training camp was way too much detailed for me, batha my level, even I have been doing yoga for 5 years, and I think is too much for beginners, I don’t recommend it for them, but this is my personal opinion!
It’s informative and even fascinating. Some Yoga manuals can be overly academic whilst others, hardly touching on the science of Yoga.
