This book me 8 months to get through but for good reason, it has a ton of detailed and valuable information. Anyone teaching yoga needs to read this book. This book is by far one of the most valuable books I have read as a teacher and it now has changed the way I teach, not only people attending my classes but my own personal practice.

IMHO, a *must* for anyone seeking to teach yoga! Delves deeply into the ways we are all different and alignment looks and feels different for every body.

This is a really good reference. The best parts are the ones that focus on human variation, the reasons for the variations, and how to adapt your yoga practice to suit those variations instead of working towards an impossible and/or aesthetic goal to look like a yoga textbook model. I'll be definitely reading the next volume. That said, I did find a lot of the book quite dry and sometimes repetitive, I think it's a really valuable book but it is a lot to get through (which may be why it took me ...more

Disappointed that this book stops at the lower body. It appears that you need to purchase a subsequent volume in order for that to be included - seems deceiving/misleading.

Incredibly interesting and incredibly technical... A bit too technical for me as a non science person who is not a yoga teacher.

Great to read a lucid, well researched yoga book that says that bodies are different so guess what: alignments are different! Go, Bernie!

Awesome, awesome, awesome book.

This book gives a really good introduction to the anatomy of yoga - not the dumbed down version. This is precisely the book I've been searching for, one that would give me a primer to understand the biomechanics of yoga. I'm looking forward to the next volume!
