See inside every yoga pose! With clear, expert instruction and full-color, detailed anatomical drawings, Yoga Anatomy depicts the most common asanas to provide a deeper understanding of the structures and principles underlying each movement and of yoga itself.
From breathing to standing poses, see how each muscle is used, how slight 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.
Author Leslie Kaminoff is a recognized expert and teacher in anatomy, breathing, and bodywork. He is the founder of The Breathing Project, New York City's premiere yoga studio dedicated to the teaching of individualized, breath-centered yoga practice and therapy.

The deepest principles of yoga are based on a subtle and profound appreciation for the human body. Yoga Anatomy brings the inherent relationship between yoga and anatomy to life with full-color, detailed anatomical illustrations that are like viewing X-rays of the body within the scope of yoga's customary postures (asanas).
This book arranges yoga postures and exercises into six sections using the base of support of each pose as a guide: standing, sitting, kneeling, prone, supine, and arm supports. Postures are further categorized according to the spinal movements involved: forward bending, backward bending, twisting, side bending, and spinal lengthening. Throughout, particular emphasis is placed on how the breath and the spine create support or release in the various practices and how the muscles coordinate in stretching, mobilizing, and stabilizing actions.
Author Leslie Kaminoff is an internationally recognized specialist with more than 20 years of experience in the fields of yoga and breath anatomy.
