Editorial Reviews

Review

If every yoga instructor read and utilized this book, students would experience connections they never thought possible. -- Suzette O'Byrne, Certified Yoga Instructor, Personal Trainer

Susi's presentation is simple to understand and very clear. This great book will be helpful for teachers and students. -- Margot Kitchen, Senior Iyengar Teacher

This book paid off in helping me learn elbow balance. Thank you! --Christopher Freeman, yoga student

About the Author

Susi Hately absolutely loves anatomy as a means of understanding yoga asana and yoga practice. In addition to Anatomy and Asana: Preventing Yoga Injuries, she is author of the "Deepening Your Practice" series, which includes The Sacro-Iliac Joints, The Knees, and The Shoulder Girdle and Cervical Spine. She is also the facilitator of the Anatomy and Asana workshop series taught internationally. Each month she sends out an "I Love Anatomy" e-lesson to a global online audience.

The author’s diverse background, which includes a BSc. in Kinesiology, yoga certification, experience in physical rehabilitation, ergonomics and a keen interest in mind-body medicine, provides a functional and common sense approach to her teaching. Her students say that her style is engaging, empowering, and loads of fun.

Susi lives in Calgary, Alberta (Canada) where she owns and operates Functional Synergy, a yoga therapy studio that specializes in designing customized yoga programs for people with injury or illness.

Customer Reviews

Too much unconnected fact and speculation, not enough energetic personality.
Ivan Nahem
Unlike other similar books, which tend to be dry, boring reading, this book is written in an easy to understand fashion with clear illustrations.
Theresa Reed
Any serious student of yoga, and all instructors, should have this book as a resource.

A book on injury prevention is definitely needed in the yoga community. Unfortunately, this book falls short. I think it has potential and a second edition would be great. However, the first 46 pages should be condensed in to about 5-10, fluff in general should be limited, and the diagrams in the asana section should be more informative.

Repetitively on each page in the asana section the author refers to muscle groups and provides a beautifully drawn diagram with too few good, useful labels. This style left me frustrated and confused. In general, it is a gorgeous book, but absolutely tedious at times.

In the wake of hot power yoga classes being marketed to novices and weekend-certified yoga instructors, a quick anatomy of asana lesson via a simple read is a welcome tool! I don't believe that Susi is trying to compete with the more comprehensive anatomy texts available. I think she is simply trying to make important information accessible to all people in a practical manner. A beautifully, however simplistically, designed book is manageable and not intimidating for the average user. I applaud Susi's efforts and enjoy her work. --Dana Edison, author and creator of Dana Edison's Yoga Is Not One Size Fits All book and audio instruction series.

I am very disappointed in the book The book is written poorly, very dry and expensive for what you get. It really isn't a good reference guide there is no glossary or chapter listing. The best information I have on Anatomy is the DVD by Paul Grilley Anatomy for Yoga.

Beware,the title of this book is misleading. There is a good deal of information about anatomy, minimal information about asanas, and next to nothing about preventing yoga injuries. I was very disappointed.

I was glad that this book was technical enough to help the serious yoga teacher. The drawing made it easy for me to learn. The spiral binding made it easy to use while watching students or myself. The author is clearly incredibly knowledgeable. The pictures and the format made the book fun to look at for a visual learner.

I'm heading up to Kripalu Yoga Center for a monthlong teacher training this summer. This is one of the texts we'll be using. It's layout, design, colors and most importantly, content, are superb! Two minutes after showing it to my yoga teacher she went online to Amazon and ordered a copy for herself.

This comprehensive text is dense with information. Although only a few pages, the book is chock full of insightful tips on yoga practice. Aldous uses a multi-sensory approach that I found practical and enlightening. I recommend it for the practioner who needs to feed the brain a bit more information while struggling with "impossible" postures. The manual has a spiral binding for easy use while practicing asanas.

Yoga anatomy books can put one to sleep. NOT THIS BOOK. It is practical and helpful. Definitely worth purchasing, reading, and keeping on one's reference shelf.
