5.0 out of 5 stars An Asana atlas 🧡
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on March 22, 2020
I absolutely love this book! It’s a staple in my library. My academic background is human anatomy and physiology and this past year I became a yoga teacher. When I first started a yoga practice, I kept trying to relate each pose back to the anatomy I know. And then I found Ann’s book! It is so accurate and detailed. It gives great insight into the nuances of yoga asanas. I highly recommend every yogi their hands on a copy!!
