A yoga teacher and physical therapist studies the structure and movement of the human body, revealing how a knowledge of both can improve your yoga practice In Yogabody, author Judith Hanson Lasater emphasizes how an understanding of the human body is essential for understanding the dynamic movement of asana. Drawing on almost forty years of experience as a yoga teacher and physical therapist, she focuses here on macroanatomy and kinesiology in relationship to asana. Organized into five parts—the locomotor system, the vertebral column, the lower extremity, the trunk, and the upper extremity—Yogabody takes you on a fantastic journey through the bones, joints, connective tissue, nerves, and muscles, revealing how these structures interact to create and express movement. Judith conveys her expert knowledge in clear, concise language that makes it easy to understand, to remember, and to integrate. For seasoned teachers, novice teachers, and those in training to teach, Yogabody will help you guide your students to move with more enjoyment and less difficulty. For yoga students, Yogabody will help you practice more confidently on your own. Packed with color anatomical drawings, black-and-white diagrammatic asana illustrations, and helpful charts, you will learn what your body is made of, how it is designed to move, and how to bring the knowledge of both to awaken to asana.

This is a Yoga Anatomy book for yoga practitioners, whether teachers or students and irrespective of style. It is about the doing of yoga, not abstract theory. Stu's focus throughout the book is on providing useful insights into what influences movement, and stability in the human body, and the implementation of those ideas into a physical yoga practice.

His relaxed style and emphasis on useability make the book engaging and enlightening.

By studying the application of fascial anatomy to yoga the yoga teacher will be able to expand each individual yoga student's optimum adaptability and mobility. This new contextual presentation of applied anatomy will provide the teacher with the tools to promote freedom and confidence in every student of yoga. By using insights from scientific research presented through case studies, the tendency to overwork the tissue and decrease vulnerability to soft tissue injury in the long-term, can be lowered. The visual design and presentation through metaphor embody the difference between sitting statically at a desk reading about movements and parts - and moving through the environment being animated, in action. Between these two experiences is a divide that this book seeks to cross.
