The best-selling anatomy guide for yoga is updated, expanded, and better than ever. With new chapters, enhanced features, and more in-depth analysis, the third edition of Yoga Anatomy provides you with a deeper understanding of yoga and of the structures and principles underlying each movement.
From breathing to standing poses to inversions, see how specific muscles might respond to the movements of the joints, how alterations of a pose can change its effect, and how the spine, nervous system, breathing and body position are all fundamentally linked.
Whether you are just beginning your journey or have been practicing for years, Yoga Anatomy will be an invaluable resource – one that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light. With Yoga Anatomy, authors Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews – both internationally recognized teachers in anatomy, breathing, and body work – have created the definitive reference for yoga practioners, instructors and enthusiasts alike.
