I use it to reference proper muscle engagement for specific poses and flows. The color illustrations of specific opposing muscles for each pose and movement make this a user friendly guide for me. I have to say I was skeptical ordering this book. I don't know anatomy.

I practice yoga in my own home. I have been to one semester of yoga classes while I was in college. I really liked it, and have practiced off and on since.

Only recently have I developed a kind of serious interest in getting into the yoga poses correctly and making sure that I am using the correct muscles for the poses as opposed to just "flopping" into them. I find that when I know the pose inside and out, I can actually concentrate on proper alignment, breathing, and using the correct muscles as opposed to what is in my to do list. Which means that I am more "present" in my practice.


I didn't get to look at this book through my library, one of the reasons why I was skeptical. I usually only get books that I have already decided are a worth while investment.

So I threw caution to the wind and wound up with a wonderful book. It goes into how the book should be read and then breaks down poses like Mountain, Tree, Warrior 1 and 2 by: How to prepare for the pose And what muscles you are using through various stages of the pose with some amazing muscular photos to go along with it. It also give you some example workouts for vinyasa yoga as well. Overall my impression: This is great, You can easily focus on proper alinement a pose or two at a time for a week until it becomes natural to your everyday practice.

I am downloading the rest of the set.

Be sure to get all four in the series, along with Ray Long's Scientific Keys. These are brilliant if you're a serious yoga student. If you're new to the practice, maybe get something a little more basic to start, and then download all of these! Makes yoga fun for people like me who are curious about such matters. Note that the forms are ideal and no beginner should expect or try to duplicate them.

If you do not, it is very easy to get injured. Easy does it. One of the "must have" book for every Yoga instructor or student. The quality of the paper, the drawings, the detail of the muscles, the clarity of the information,etc.

Inside you'll find instructions to ace the final Asana, options for preparing it like another asanas or how to use props like in Iyengar style. The book have a guide for muscles used in every asana or involved in it. There are 3 ways I understand poses here. Names are given for each muscle that either stretches or flexes, also pictures of said muscles in different hues of blue and red to show where intensity is, also the joints involed and the direction the muscles move the ligements.

While it could be overwhelming for some there is a lot of growing room and so many details to continue to work towards better posture. Even the sugested vinyasa flow has some weight to how to order poses and it gives reference to the chakras. But what I really like is how scientific it seems. It even gives several variations that can be used for injuries or preparation for each pose.

What I really like is how it details how to use reciprocal inhibition and the golgi tendon to go deaper into poses- which I might call a simple shift of awareness to push into the pain without getting hurt. As well as a heap of detail about creating bandhas via co-activation for stabelization.

This book is full of awesome technical details and is amazingly illuatrated. The technical details are great if you understand them. I'm not casually familiar with the given name for every muscle in the body unfortunately. However, once through the first time, the book is much easier to read the second. This has been a great resource in my yoga practice, which has greatly improved. I will be downloading the subsequent volumes i Great book that deserves full credit but I did have to read it twice.

I will be downloading the subsequent volumes in this collection. I am a yoga teacher and found all of Ray Long's anatomy books extremely helpful! Great pictures along with details on every part of the body involved in poses. I really enjoy this book as a resource.

I would recommend knowing 50 or so basic muscles before starting to read it I really enjoy this book as a resource. I would recommend knowing 50 or so basic muscles before starting to read it.

Anatomy for Vinyasa Flow and Standing Poses

It helped in enhancing my yoga practice. Now, I'm more aware of what my body is supposed to do in terms of which muscles to contract and how to adjust alignment.

She can continue to hold the chair legs, stretch her arms overhead, or slip her arms underneath the seat between the chair legs and grip the back rung.

How to Design a Yoga Sequence for Depression The word "depression" covers a wide range of conditions, from long-standing and severe clinical or major depression to shorter-term and episodic mild depression, also called dysthymic disorder, to situational depression brought on by a major life change, such as the death of a spouse, job loss, divorce.

Many different therapies are available for depression, including anti-depressants and psychotherapy. Studies indicate that regular exercise too, including yoga asanas and breathing, can help some people ease the symptoms of mild to moderate forms of depression.

Here is a sequence you can try with students suffering from this condition. You may also want to refer to Yoga Poses for Depression. Hold each side for 1 to 2 minutes; total time 2 to 4 minutes.
