    This review is from: The Doctrine and Practice of Yoga (Paperback)

    free e-book, read first 4 pages only, if you dont worship jesus
    and arent prepared to ‘immerse yourself in the supernatural’
    or meditate on ‘heaven’ and other biblical concepts
    then look elsewhere for yoga information/advice..

    It is free… about all this book has going for it.

    Some people might like it, but it really was not what I was looking for in a Yoga book.

    This review is from: The Key Muscles of Yoga: Scientific Keys, Volume I (Paperback)

    This book is fantastic! Have both Vol I & II, and they are invaluable for anyone wanting to learn about yoga, being healthier, or any nursing or med, or physical therapy student.
    The book shows which muscles are involved in each yoga move – the ones working, being stretched, or supporting the body weight. For anyone in medicine, this also breaks down movements into steps and illustrates why the patient is in pain with that movement. For anyone in physical therapy, is illustrates why you need to do that excerise & shows how it will help you.
    As a student in a yoga teacher training class, this helps me learn how to do the poses correctly and which muscles are working with each pose and how to avoid stressing injuried body parts. Fantastic reading and a great resource!

    Great Graphics, April 25, 2007

    The Good: One of the best pictorials I have seen on the muscular system. I really like the way the author separates and groups the muscles. Great for learning and relearning your muscle anatomy.

    The Bad: I found a couple of mislabeled muscles in the spine and forearm. I sent an email to confirm this with Bandha Yoga but have no heard back. I use Netter as a reference among other text books.

    This review is from: The Key Muscles of Yoga: Scientific Keys, Volume I (Paperback)

    So, my old review is before and it was titled “mixed reviews”. I would like to point out that this book has several printings and they each keep improving – errors are getting corrected. This makes me happy as it shows a commitment to sharing accurate information. I highly recommend this book.

    I use this book often to teach other teachers about yoga anatomy. The book has sort of made its way into the mainstream and is the often the book used by teacher training schools. Pretty pictures are appealing, aren’t they? The pictures are a great learning tool, the quality of the images is supreme. However, the content of the book and the arrangement for that matter leave me perplexed. If using the book to learn specific areas of the body, you find yourself flipping around A LOT. Furthermore, some important information is lacking, at odds with what’s common among anatomists (without an explanation), or hard to find. But….pretty pictures are appealing, aren’t they? So I use the book as a supplement. Hope that helps.
