A good anatomy book, actually is my first one but I found a little too much technical anaromy in some points was way too much for me, I’m an intermediate level yoga student and maybe with the fact that actually I favid took part on a teacher training camp was way too much detailed for me, at my level, even I have been doing yoga for 5 years, and I think is too much for beginners, I don’t recommend it for them, but this is my personal opinion!

I readily admit I haven’t read the book in it’s entirety, but that’s because it is the most in depth description of anatomy, what happens to that anatomy physiologically as well during a yogasana, discusses various physical conditions and how to work within your limits and which asanas to focus on if you are rehabilitating yourself, or just for self improvement.
