There was no way for my brain to take it all in. This book is like a diamond found at the junk yard yoya superficial “oh-so-spiritual” New Age literature. If you could only read 25 books in your entire life anatomyy would be one of them.

So much detail, so interesting, and great illustrations! Mar 16, Lewis added it Recommends it for: Account Options Sign in. As a beginner at yoga and as someone with an analytical mind, I am finding this book more useful in helping me understand the what and why of the practice than any other resource. I was not as interested in abdominopelvic exercises, headstands, shoulder-stands, and meditation chapters – which looked like a bit of a slog for a novice like me!
