    Key Poses of Yoga, January 26, 2010

    This review is from: The Key Poses of Yoga: Scientific Keys, Volume II (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!

    The book’s design of using separate Theory and Practice sections has given me much more insight into how the mind and body work together when practicing Yoga. The author has turned an extremely detailed brain/anatomy lesson into something you really want to keep reading and explore further. The text combined with the illustrations in the Practice section help to tie it all together and get you towards the fullest extension of the pose while gaining knowledge of what is really working in your body at that time. Some mention and great illustration of the deep fibrous tissue are a plus. I would have liked more detail on that aspect but most books don’t even address it. All around great guide, you will use it often.

    As a yoga instructor, I am interested in learning the “hows” and “whys” behind the poses I teach in my classes. This book — volume II behind “The Key Muscles of Hatha Yoga” — is beautifully and extraordinarily illustrated, and strikes a perfect balance between the scientific and the metaphysical aspects of yoga practice. Well worth the money, it is an essential addition to any instructor’s ( or student’s) yoga library.
