Banyen's Description: 

See inside every yoga pose! With clear, expert instruction and full-colour, detailed anatomical drawings by Sharon Ellis, 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, have been practicing yoga for years, or are a yoga instructor, Yoga Anatomy will be an invaluable resource—one that allows you to see each movement in an entirely new light.

The Second Edition includes over 30 new illustrations and asana variations and vinyasas; new chapters on the muscular and skeletal systems; completely revised chapters on asana analysis; a quick-find muscle index; and expanded information on breathing and the spine and discussion of bandhas (breathing “locks”).

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 premier yoga studio dedicated to the teaching of individualized, breath-centered yoga practice and therapy. He currently practices yoga therapy, teaches anatomy, and advises various yoga schools on the anatomy content of their national certification programs.
