Most Anatomy books are complicated, confusing, and dry

So I wrote my book in a conversational tone and language
everyone can understand;

helping you learn as a teacher and practitioner.

“I never thought I would say this about an Anatomy book but, I love this book!!!” – Alex

Bakasana

(p 329)

Remember, everything in the body is connected
and functions as such. In this pose, however,
the shoulders must be strongly stabilized
to maintain the torso at the improbable angle.
Helping this stabilization is an unlikely group
of muscles in the back - the paraspinal
muscles (the erector spinae group).

Prasarita Padottanasana

(p 252)

When we shift the position of the
femur and the pelvis in a wide-legged
forward bend, we change the dynamic of what
will restrict the movement forward. Sometimes
widening the legs allows students with tight
hamstrings but flexible adductors to be able
to do the pose quite well, but will
struggle when the legs are together.

Downward Facing Dog

(p 246)

The foot, ankle, and calf muscles also impact
our forward bend. Down Dog is just as much
about our feet, ankles, and calves as it is about
our hamstrings. Lengthening these tissues
in Down Dog supports the forward bends
that follow.

Baddha Konasana

(p 277)

With both legs folded into the same position,
the pelvis does not change its angle relative
to the top of the mat. It also can't tilt up or down
to compensate, because the other side is in the
same position. This increases the general
intensity of the stretch through the adductors
and their attachment at the front of the
pubic bone.

I wrote this book for you

I know you want to learn anatomy. I have seen plenty of people struggle with the way other yoga anatomy books are written. They often just have images of postures and muscles that should be contracting or lengthening, leading to rote memorization.

This book is different.

How? Well, it teaches concepts and principles that help you understand anatomy and make you a more confident practitioner and/or teacher.  When I wrote this yoga anatomy book, my over arching idea was to write one that people would actually read, enjoy, and understand!

This is not another yoga anatomy book that will sit on your shelf unread. Instead, it’s one that you’ll want to read cover to cover!

But don’t just take my word for it, read the buyer reviews on Amazon.com.
