Anatomy of Hatha Yoga
A Manual for Students, Teachers and Practitioners

by H. David Coulter

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga

Anatomy of Hatha Yoga by H. David Coulter is a unique and outstanding volume that brings together the Western training and knowledge of a University teacher of nueroscience, microscopic anatomy and elementary anatomy with his love for and deep knowledge of yoga. While this book is a fantastic resource it is not for everybody. It is highly detailed, fairly technical and deals with the complex systems of the human body.
      If you take your time and really absorb what is in this book, the connections between the various systems and parts of our bodies becomes clear. Breathing is central and there are great explanations as to how how different types of breathing can affect your spine in and how certain postures encourage specific types of breathing. If you are a yoga teacher, reading this can help you to see what is happening in your students and may give you new ideas for breathing exercises and posture sequences.

There are many, many positive reviews of this book. We have chosen excerpts from 4 that will give you a fuller sense of what is in it.
      "(Coulter) leads the reader through the intricacies of anatomy systematically, with a watchful eye on the goal: to understand yoga practice better...For example, three ways to accomplish the sometimes awkward feat of isolating the rectus abdominis muscles in nauli kriya are explained in a section on abdominopelvic exercizes." Rolf Sovik, Yoga International
"Coulter uses anatomy to illuminate the structure and execution of the poses, and, at the same time, brings the anatomy alive through the poses and selected exercises... if you are aYoga therapist or teacher, or a astudent who enjoys breaking down the poses and putting them back together again, then you will most definitely want a copy of this book to refer to over and over again." Richard Rosen, International Journal of Yoga Thearapy
"The book is certainly exhaustive and comprehensive in its scope and breadth, offering insights into such topics as the mechanics of breathing, the various kriyas, and more subtle aspects of Yoga practice such as mudras and bandhas from a Yogic as well as from a Western scientific point of view." Jane Sill, Yoga & Health
 "The result of an obvious labor of love, Anatomy of Hatha Yoga explains hatha yoga in demystified, scientific terms while at the same time honoring its traditions. It should go a long way to helping yoga achieve the scientific recognition it deserves. Useful as both a textbook and reference, this work is a book that all serious yoga teachers and practitioners will want on their shelves. It will also be welcomed by sympathetic physicians -and there are more of us all the time- as well as physical therapists and other health professionals." Timothy McCall, M.D.
