About David – Yoga Anatomy Presenter

david keil yoga anatomyThis website is about delivering yoga anatomy to the yoga community in a simple and understandable way. It has always been about you, the reader, understanding the complexity and diversity of our own humanness as well as our anatomy.

We often interact with anatomy in two key places. The first is relative to injury, either in a preventative way, or after some type of injury has occurred. The second is when we want to do a particular asana, but can’t, and want to know why. In other words, you’re looking for the technique or anatomical restriction that limits your ability to do a pose. This is where yoga anatomy comes in.

From this, we often want “the answer” to the problem or the injury. Unfortunately, there is often no single answer or simple solution. It is not my desire to simplify the anatomy or the yoga itself, that would be an injustice to the complexity and diversity of who we are physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
