Anatomy & Yoga: A Guide for Teachers and Students is a valuable resource for yoga teachers and practitioners who are curious about what happens in the body as they practice yoga. The vital structures of the body, such as muscles, bones, joints, nerves and connective tissue, are described in a user-friendly style, with short, interactive practice sessions to bring the information alive in the moment. The rapidly growing yoga community needs this essential knowledge of biomechanics, especially in yoga teacher training programs.

Anatomy & Yoga presents anatomical knowledge in a progressive and practical sequence, with in-depth information on each major body part and chapters that contain illustrations, yoga references, innovative exercises, therapeutic tips and study questions. Throughout the book, anatomical details are balanced with the holistic perspective of yoga as an integrative, transformational lifelong practice.

Ellen Saltonstall has been teaching yoga, anatomy, therapeutics and Bodymind Ballwork to improve wellness for everyone since 1985. Her previous titles include Yoga for Arthritis and Yoga for Osteoporosis (with Dr. Loren Fishman) and Kinetic Awareness: Discovering Your Bodymind.

Ellen’s writings have appeared in Yoga Journal, Topics in Geriatric Rehabilitation and the International Association of Yoga Therapists’ Journal of Yoga Therapy. Currently she teaches yoga, anatomy, yoga therapeutics and Bodymind Ballwork to students and teachers internationally, inviting them to discover and explore the majesty and mystery of the human form.
