An amazing blend of modern science and yoga, this four book series is our most popular book buy for yoga teachers and trainees. Orthopedic surgeon Ray Long has created a scientific approach to understanding the practice of hatha yoga: through full-colour, three-dimensional illustrations of major muscles, tendons, and ligaments, he describes the correct positioning of hatha yoga poses (asanas) and their benefits. Specific anatomical descriptions highlight which muscles to activate in each pose, bringing the experience of the pose to new sensory heights. A novel approach to learning yoga poses: each of the four mat companions focuses on one type of asanae: standing poses, forward bends and hip openers, back bends and twists, and arm balances and inversions. The illustrations and descriptions describe the major movements that enable the poses, how to deepen the posture, and sequences of muscle activation. The concealed wire-bound pages make the books perfect mat resources during practice. book preview

Fantastic One of the best books I have come across. Very informative and practical. It has really helped my practice and teaching.

Terry Rees says:

Excellent book Very useful for amateur or professional practitioner of yoga. Pictures of postures and muscles used in the poses are very helpful in understanding and improving the asana. My only wish is that author had included in the text the common English names of some of the asanas. It is difficult enough trying to learn and remember the anatomical names of muscles and bones used in the text and images. When the author refers to other asanas when discussing a particular pose and he uses the original hindu names, I found myself scratching my head trying to recall what the particular pose or poses he was referring to. Or maybe I should just try to learn the correct names. 😕😕.
