Anatomy

Anatomy for Hip Openers and Forward Bends

by Ray Long M.D.


Ever wonder what happens to your quadratis lumborus during a forward bend? Well, you no longer have to remain in the dark on that subject. This guide to hip openers and forward bends will clue you in to that and much more. With beautiful, detailed illustrations, you get a sneak peak behind the scenes of many common yoga poses to see exactly what is stretching, what is flexing, and what is getting in the way. With step by step instructions, you'll be able to isolate and work with all of the major muscle systems that each asana deals with. You'll be able to really turn your mind inside and follow the flow of the dynamic of the pose, increase your body awareness, and facilitate therapeutic uses of yoga.
     The system this book uses is to give five elements for every asana. These are: joint positions, muscles that engage, muscles that stretch, breath, and badhas. The bandhas refers to those muscles groups that are activated and held during the retention of the position, stimulating flow of energy in the position and connecting to the energetic knots in the subtle body.
     Ray Long MD FRCSC is a board certified orthopedic surgeon and the founder of Bandha Yoga. Ray graduated from The University of Michigan Medical School with post-graduate training at Cornell University, McGill University, The University of Montreal and Florida Orthopedic Institute. He has studied hatha yoga for over twenty years, training extensively with B.K.S. Iyengar and other leading yoga masters.
