Most yoga students who have been practicing yoga for more than five years begin to realize that learning about yoga and the science of how it strengthens the body really never ends- that’s the fun of it!
I’m always on the hunt for new books to add to my collection and Yogabody by Judith Hanson Lasater is an advanced yoga practitioner’s dream. If you want to deepen your practice (or your teaching if you’re certified), this will become a great source book because it ties anatomy and the asana practice together with 155 color anatomical drawings, 69 asana illustrations, and charts that break down the physical functions for bones, muscles, and joints.
I especially like the sections entitled “experiential anatomy” for practicing and for teaching that show you how to apply asanas to specific problem or pain areas.
