Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners by H. David Coulter
A great resource for my “Experiential Anatomy for Yoga Teachers” class. He has set himself the ambitious goal of combining the modern scientific under- standing of anatomy and physiology with the ancient practice of hatha yoga. What I got was almost no pictures at all. A good anatomy book, actually is my first one but I found a little too much technical 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, at my level, even I have been doing yoga for 5 years, and I think is too much for beginners, I don’t recommend od for them, but this is my personal opinion!

Return to Book Page. A lot of yoga anatomy books stick exclusively to the musculo-skeletal system. There is just too much in this book for an in-depth review, complete with substantiated examples and quotes.
It includes chapters on breathing, relaxation and meditation as well as detailed diagrams, illustrations and photos. Breathing is followed by pelvic and abdominal exercises in chapter 3 because the pelvis and abdomen form the foundation of the body. Just get the book! There must be a downside? Sometimes books shift from talking about arteries and veins to nadis and chakras in a manner that can be confusing snatomy counterproductive.
