Product Description

Review

Right from the start I was not disappointed.... What makes this book unique and valuable is the color photos of a model completing the pose and rendered images of a very believable model and the musculature needed to complete the poses... Anatomy of Yoga is an expert guide that is extremely useful for anyone interested in enhancing a personal yoga fitness routine. It will also interest yoga instructors who want a visual aid that clearly illustrates the benefits of each exercise. (Sky Yoga Studio, Naperville, IL 2010-10-25)

If you love yoga, but don't know your rectus femoris from your rhomboideus, here's a new book for you. Anatomy of Yoga: An Instructor's Guide to Improving Your Poses by certified trainer Abigail Ellsworth is a primer on the 50 most common poses or asanas found in yoga. Each pose is described, along with modifications for individual body differences, tips for improvement and ways to minimize the potential injury. What makes this book special is the extensive use of anatomically detailed illustrations opposite full colour photographs of a model demonstrating the exercises. In the cobra poise, for example, one can see the deep stretch given to the transversus abdominus, the obliques and pectoral muscles, and the simultaneous strengthening of the trapezius and gluteal muscles. It gives you a full picture of the power and the beauty that lies beneath your skin while practising yoga. (Valerie Berenyi Calgary Herald 2011-01-20)

For the yoga enthusiast on your list here's a book with vivid color illustrations showing the body's underlying musculature as various poses are being performed. Abigail Ellsworth's guide also includes a muscle glossary and a section on breath control. (Darla Carter Louisville Courier-Journal 2010-12-09)

If you are at all interested in yoga, then we have an excellent resource manual that is just perfect for beginners and professionals alike.... Slugged as "an instructor's guide to improving your poses," this tome is filled with eye-catching, full-color visual references for more than 50 common yoga poses (asanas) that focus on strength, flexibility and proper breathing. A model showing the correct position accompanies each asana. What distinguishes Anatomy of Yoga from other yoga books is the creative addition of detailed, anatomical, computer-generated illustrations opposite each photograph identifying the active and stabilizing muscles being used and how each benefits the body. (Laura Anne Rega-Crossan Natural Bodybuilding and Fitness 2011-05-01)

Format: Paperback
I liked the book. I picked it up in a store, browsed through it quickly and bought it. At home, I browsed through it again and began reading and, as a yogini of 30 years, found myself 'liking it'. Why? because it provided clear visual images that provide 'quick' reference to the postures in Sanskrit and English and also a simple anatomical perspective. I have hundreds of yoga books, including , Light on Yoga by B.K. S. Iyengar, and they are all wonderful books. Would I recommend this one? definitely! For beginners, or for teachers who just want a quick reference to a posture , for whatever reason, this is a good book to have.

I had a hard time getting it back from my teacher who borrowed it from me. She liked it better than the anatomy book she learned from.
