A book I’m always going to reference. The book has a large number of graphics that mostly consist of anatomical drawings and photographs of the various versions of the postures. The newer version has colour-coded pictures, which are more helpful than black and white. The rest of the chapters are on core exercises, standing postures, back bends, forward bends, twists, headstands, shoulder-stands, doulter meditative postures, respectively.
Standing postures will then be covered in chapter 4 because these poses are so important for beginning coukter, and because davi provide a preview of backbending, forward bending, and twisting postures, which are covered in detail in chapters 5, 6, and 7.

Coulter was an medical college anatomy professor and experienced yoga practitioner, so he is an expert on the subject. Still, I refer to it enough that xoulter a great reference volume.

The instructions are so detailed that you sometimes get lost and need to read them over and over again beca This book is like a diamond found at the junk yard of superficial “oh-so-spiritual” New Age literature.
My only wish is that the author include more sections to cover forearm balances and handstands So much detail, so interesting, and great illustrations! The book is written in a highly professional and detailed way.
Good for yoga teacher or students who want to deepen their knowledge. Very well written yoya completely approachable for all levels of practitioners. This book yogs like a diamond found at the junk yard of superficial “oh-so-spiritual” New Age literature. A lot of yoga anatomy books stick exclusively to the musculo-skeletal system. A reference for daily practice coultr a helping hand to any teacher. Yoga teachers and students, personal trainers, medical therapists, or anyone who is curious or troubled about how the body responds to stretching and exercise will find in this book a cornucopia — partly new and partly old — of readable and reliable information.
As a beginner at yoga and as someone with an analytical mind, I dvid finding this book more useful in helping me understand the what and why of the practice than any other resource. A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners. No eBook available Motilal Banarsidass Publ. If you could only read 25 books in your entire life this would be one of them.
I understand so much more about how my body functions in terms of movement and its many systems. Although I have previously taught a high school anatomy and physiology course, I still had to rely on YouTube to finally enlighten me as to what mutation and counter-nutation movements were, for example.
Hatha yoga is comprised yova stretching, strengthening and breathing exercises in upright, lying down and inverted postures. Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive? The ten chapters of the book are mostly divided up by classes of posture asana.
A must-have reference book for any hatha yoga teacher. This is the book of the year, definitely not one you can read and forget about. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.
The author expounded on the anatomy and fundamentals, as well as the correct techniques and obstacles for numerous standing, back-bending, forward-bending, and twisting postures.
BOOK REVIEW: Anatomy of Hatha Yoga by H. David Coulter | the !n(tro)verted yogi
Overall, I recommend this book to everyone who is interested in yoga and wants to gain all the physical benefits from doing it properly! The author bring the discipline of a scientist and the devotion of a yogi to this wonderful text. Oct 14, Liz Filippone rated it it was amazing. A good anatomy book, actually is my first one but I found a little too much technical and in some points was way too much for me, I’m an intermediate level yoga student and maybe with the fact that actually I never took part on a teacher training camp was way too much detailed for me, at my level, even I have been doing yoga for 5 years, and I think is too much for beginners, I don’t recommend it for them, but this is my personal opinion!
