Would benefit from some anatomy knowledge prior to reading This is not an introduction to anatomy. This is anatomy applied to yoga. It does cover the basic anatomical theory and terms used to describe the postures, including skeletal and muscular actions. However a prior understanding of the muscles; their names and perhaps how they are linked, would make sure you got the most out of this book book.The revised edition is clearer and better structured than the first edition.INSIDE THE BOOKThe first 4 chapters cover:-Beautiful introduction discussing how intrinsic the basic yogic concepts are in the body, before we even start asana.-How breathing effects the shape of the body/spine and how this relates to yoga (why we inhale and exhale with certain movements).-The spine including it’s development and range of motion.-The skeletal system including how to describe actions of the of the joints and bones.-The muscular system including how to describe muscle contractions, briefly what are…

In…

I LOVE IT!Just a reminder to pepole. A healthy diet is also important when working out. If you have low vitamin and mineral levels, progress will seem slow. I put allefbbbf my clients on natural supplements in the beginning and they all see big results. This is because it’s enough to have low levels in one area to break the chain, they’re all interlinked. iHerb.com have the best supply (tip: TEG967 code for discount). Vitamins and minerals are the building blocks for tissue regeneration.
