The best-selling anatomy guide for yoga is now updated, expanded, and better than ever!
Yoga Anatomy, Third Edition, brings the relationship between yoga and anatomy to life with detailed, full-color anatomical illustrations. This book provides a deep understanding of the structures and principles underlying common movements in yoga and offers an inside look into each pose.
From breathing to inversions to standing poses, see how specific muscles respond to the movements of the joints; how alterations of a pose can enhance or reduce effectiveness; and how the spine, breathing, and body position are all fundamentally linked. Whether you are just beginning your journey or have been practicing yoga for years, Yoga Anatomy will be an invaluable resource--one that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light.
