Paying close attention to anatomy, and stressing out the importance of alignment is an essential ingredient of both my yoga teaching and my practice, to keep our body safely healthy.
That’s why good anatomy references and books are essential to me… and anatomy related to movement is fascinating!
I’m sharing here the main references I’ve been consulting again and again, and constantly coming back to through the years – to better understand the dynamics of the body in the yoga asanas, as well as postural issues in daily life:
Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff
Anatomy of Movement by Blandine Calais
Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners by David H. Coulter
