Yogabody by Judith Hanson Lasater
Master yoga teacher Judith Lasater draws upon her training and experience as a physical therapist in her latest book on yogic anatomy. Yogabody is organized into five sections (the locomotor system, the vertebral column, the lower extremity, the trunk, and the upper extremity) and is filled with detailed and thorough writing, beautiful color anatomical drawings, black-and-white asana illustrations, and helpful charts.This is definitely a technical book, so those with no anatomy background may struggle with the writing a bit. But this book is filled with valuable tidbits of practical knowledge, especially in the experiential anatomy sections where hands-on exercises are described for practicing and teaching the anatomical concepts. The wealth of information in this book is best to be digested slowly over time and used to carefully interweave new layers of understanding of the physical body in your yoga practice and teaching. This book is highly recommended for yoga teachers and serious students as well as anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of the physical body.
