5.0 out of 5 stars A great investment for students and teachers of yoga 18 Mar. 2013
By Yogaprasad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the kind of text that you come back to time and again. It is a large book and I cannot claim to have read it from cover to cover .. yet. However it is written in a very comprehensible style and manages to explain scientific material in a very approachable manner.

I have a number of anatomy books, including some written for yoga. I have found Coulter's Anatomy of Hatha Yoga interesting but at times hard work. Kaminoff's Yoga Anatomy is a little gem, however it is limited in its aims and scope. In his prologue Robin indicates that if he had known that Coulter's book was on the horizon he may not have continued his, however we can be very glad that he did not know, as Robin's approach is broader and gives factual insight into all aspects of human anatomy and physiology, and then relates it to yoga.

Robin comes from an Iyengar tradition, however the book is easily to relate to any other tradition of yoga. It has a fabulous section on neuroscience, an aspect that is so important in how yoga works as a somatic practice to bring the practitioner into a balanced state of mind, body and spirit. This is an excellent text for use in the training of yoga teachers and now I have discovered it, I will be incorporating it into my teacher training course as a set text instead of requiring students to invest in a general anatomy book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem for serious yoga teachers 15 Oct. 2011
By Yonnie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are a yoga teacher that is interested in really knowing your subject from a medical and a scientific perspective, this is a must have.

The book is in a league of its own, with second place being a long way behind.

Robin takes hard science and writes about it engagingly so an intelligent 16 year old could understand it.

Which is not to say it's easy. The material is challenging, and not necessarily easily digestible right away. You might need to read again and again to grasp the concepts.

But this book equips you to better understand how the body works, to be better able to teach your students, and be better able to answer more technical questions. Ultimately, it gives you tools to becoming a more knowledgeable teacher.

I'm a teacher that is interested in the intersection between medicine and yoga. I am wary of being too vague and airy fairy in my classes. This book gives me lots of information on the therapeutic aspects of yoga, and is by far one of the most intelligent books on the subject by a long shot.

amazing. This will take me years to get through. But it's already a good reference. I teach yoga teachers so this is quite helpful.

This book is written so that it's easy for any one to read. I have just started it but have learned so much already. I would definitely recommend it to teachers wishing more insight and tips on teaching.
