Great 3D pictures to help you understand the correct asanas and every detail that will help your practice improve and get perfect. You see a lot of work was put into this book, with different colorful aspects of the muscles which contract or extend and amazing angles for visualization. It helps you understand what going on in your body while doing a certain asana and how to use the bandhas and alignment to go deeper. Unfortunately doesn't explain what are the benefits of each one of the Asanas which would have been a great adition, but besides that I think it's the best book out there. Fantastic!

I have been practicing yoga asana for several years, yet confess to not knowing that much about the body and how it works.
This book has changed all that in an instant and, as I am one of those people who learns easily when learning visually, it has been an invaluable aid in helping me to understand what is happening during each posture and therefore, in what areas i need to apply additional focus and breath, in order to deepen my practice.
The book has added yet another angle of enjoyment to my favourite part of each day.

As a Yoga teacher this, and it's companion book on yoga anatomy, is probably the best and most useful yoga anatomy book I have seen. It offers very clear and precise details of the muscle engagement in each asana without being overly technical. It also offers very clear explanations which can be utilised in explaining postures to beginners.
