    1. Leslie Kaminoff Amy Matthews SharonEllis Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Yoga Anatomy book, this is one of the most wanted Leslie Kaminoff Amy Matthews SharonEllis author readers around the world.

    2. I can barely begin to describe how happy this book makes me.My mom was a nurse, and I spent hours of my childhood pouring over her Anatomy books.So to find a book of see-through people doing my other favorite thing, yoga?To integrate these drawings and visualize what my body is doing as I strike a pose?Hot damn! Why, that's better than peanut butter and chocolate!or chocolate and potato chips! or anything with caramel!I will die happy and limber.

    3. I guess I’m one of those people that likes to understand the how and why of everything I do. Therefore, whenever I workout, I find myself wondering about the purpose of each particular exercise. Am I actually working, strengthen, or stretching my muscles in a way that is beneficial to my body or am I just wasting my time? Am I doing the exercises correctly or am I setting myself up for an injury? Perhaps that’s why I love the Anatomy series from Human Kinetics. They have a number of differen [...]

    4. For a yoga anatomy book, I expected to learn proper alignment and details of challenges to getting into the poses. Instead, I found the book just listing muscles that are involved in the pose with the diagram. I was not impressed.

    5. (Worth noting: this review is based on the reading from the 1st edition of this book. Kaminoff recently released a 2nd updated version with expanded introductory chapters that I haven’t had the pleasure of reading yet.)This is a spectacular book – if you already know a hefty amount of anatomy. If your knowledge on anatomy is slim, this is still an exceptionally useful book, but it can also be overwhelming.Anatomy pro or no, the introductory chapters set a wonderful foundation for understandi [...]

    6. I think this is more useful as a reference book than as a book that one would read straight through. I found the introductory chapters really hard to get into. They just didn't interest me. However, the sections on the individual poses are really great and I would imagine that anyone going through teacher training would want to have a copy of this on hand to refer to when learning to teach/cue/adjust any of the postures. It's worth having a copy of this book for that alone.

    7. Meh. Felt that there were iffy scientific principles being espoused. Very detailed in their descriptions of the muscles and joints actions for each posture. But also a bit too much detail to the point where it was unnecessary and not valuable. Limited number of postures covered.

    8. Muy informativo e ilustrativo. Yoga + anatomía = conocimiento a poner en práctica. Gracias a este libro, los amantes del yoga podrán mejorar sus posturas, respiración y prevenir ciertas lesiones.Algunas anotaciones: 1. "The ancient yogis held the view that we actually possess three bodies: physical, astral, and causal. From this perspective, yoga anatomy is the study of the subtle currents of energy that move through the layers, or “sheaths,” of those three bodies".2. "This observation t [...]

    9. Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff discusses yoga's effect on the body and the body's effect on yoga. Kaminoff starts by explaining the dynamics of breathing and of yoga breath. This section alone is worth the cost of the book! I noticed an immediate improvement in my breathing during yoga poses and therefore an improvement in the poses after reading the section on breathing. Yoga Anatomy then goes on to show yoga poses from an anatomical view highlighting the parts of the body that should be worki [...]

    10. This was assigned to me as a required resource for Shala, and I credit it for my passing of instructor training today! :) The breadth & depth of the material is amazing. It reflects so much care, work and attentiveness to detail. It really is anatomy for yogis. First of all, the illustrations are absolutely crystal clear (the amazing artist, Sharon Ellis, is a medical illustrator). The drawings show exactly what your muscles and bones are doing in each pose. The coolest part is that we get t [...]

    11. A definite must read (and study) for any and all yoga teachers, even more so if you have taken only a weekend yoga course. This is meant to show you what muscles are engaged and when, plus how the breath affects the musculature and the bones. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST in every yoga teacher's library.

    12. Wonderfully illustrated guide of many basic and advanced asanas. The illustrations portray the skeletal and muscular detail of the poses, and provide a great tool for personal practice.

    13. La struttura del libro si divide in due parti. La prima parte teorica è composta da quattro capitoli in cui si parla della respirazione, della colonna vertebrale, dell'apparato scheletrico, dell'apparato muscolare. La seconda parte del libro invece riguarda la pratica dello yoga e quindi delle asana. Tutto ciò è arricchito da immagini strepitose (28€ di libro, ci mancherebbe anche che non fossero eccezionali! 😒) che evidenziano i muscoli interessati nelle posizioni.Questo è il mio ottav [...]

    14. A really superb support book for understanding details of yoga anatomy. Although my 200 RYT course assigned the Ray Long books on yoga anatomy and muscles, I was glad to have the Kaminoff book as a solid reference since he does a masterful job of providing clear explanations of dynamics of breathing (ch 1), yoga and the spine (ch 2), skeletal and muscular systems (chs 3 -4), and then detailed discussion and illustration of asanas in the different categories of standing, seated, kneeling, supine [...]

    15. Purchased through Barnes & Noble I found this book to be a wonderful reference book for those seeking a better understanding of what is going on in the body when achieving different poses and the proper use of breath. I wouldn't advise this book to be anything read straight though in one sitting; it really is something to look back on as you advance in your own personal yoga practice.

    16. One of yoga’s better anatomy manuals, Kaminoff offers enough key poses and variations to give asana practices a handle on what’s happening. Each pose provides a few pictures with detailed explanations of which muscles are working, which are stretching, what each joint is doing, and how to surmount common obstacles. I use this in tandem with Blandine Calais-Germain’s “Anatomy if Movement” when I want a deeper understanding of the practice and how to teach it.

    17. Required for yoga teacher training, I was really excited for this. I find myself more interested in anatomy the older I get. I think lots of years of running has also encouraged the interest. I found this book really informative, but feel the first few chapters could use another edit. Some of the passages are so poorly arranged, they barely make sense. The chapters on the poses are excellent, which makes up for the first chapters.

    18. Super helpful for my practice! I'm not well versed in anatomy, so I had to read this book with my computer by my side, searching terms I didn't know and seeking out extra information when I was curious; this made for a slow read, but it was worth it. This is a great handbook to have around for anyone who practices yoga.

    19. This book helps me to really be more conscious of my movements and breathing and it helps me figure out which positions are going to be good for me. The way it is divided gives me a broader sense of how to schedule my practice and which asanas I will be practicing.

    20. If you're interested in understanding what happens inside your body during yoga postures, then this book is perfect! I learned so much about proper alignment, breathing within postures, and what muscles are used during different postures.

    21. I use this book in my personal yoga practice and also in planning classes as a yoga instructor. It's a well-placed intersection between the anatomical aspects of yoga and how understanding the body can help get a better result spiritually and emotionally during the practice.

    22. I didn't get all the way through it and I will probably come back to it. But it's a very useful introduction to yoga anatomy.

    23. This was distributed to each student in my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training class. I give it as a gift to yoga friends who travel for work and want to practice in hotel rooms.

    24. The details about how the body works together while moving into various asanas are fascinating! I only wish the book covered more asanas. It's a book I'll definitely refer to!

    25. Leslie Kaminoff's Yoga Anatomy is a fantastic reference and guide to the way the body moves during yoga. The drawings are incredibly detailed and really help to increase understanding of how each pose works. The introductory sections on breathing and the spine are clearly written and really helpful for comprehending how breathing functions and how the spine develops and moves. The remainder of the book is organized by categories of postures: standing, sitting, kneeling, supine, prone, and arm su [...]
