A Deserved Five Stars,
This review is from: Anatomy of Hatha Yoga: A Manual for Students, Teachers and Practitioners (Paperback)
For the depth of detail alone this book deserves five stars, however, Coulter has also managed to make, what I find to be a somewhat testingly tedious topic - human anatomy and physiology, come to life. So, if I could I'd award another star for Mr Coulter as I didn't drift off once whilst reading this well illustrated manual.
A really useful book for those studying to be Yoga Teachers with the accredited Western Yoga organisations and also for those dutifully performing their asanas who want to know whats going on within their bodies, if they don't already, and are not put to sleep by anatomy and physiology, Western style.
Coulter also provides translations of the Sanskrit terminology for many of the postures and practices, practices such as 'ashwini mudra' an essential but rarely taught procedure that affects the mental energy as well as corrects and maintains an important and often over looked part of our anatomy.
Good book for what it is.
