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

Apr 03, Robyn Okrant rated it it was amazing. I think the Maehle books might have better, more in-depth descriptions, though I have not finished either yet. Although I have previously taught a high school anatomy and physiology course, I still had to rely on YouTube to finally enlighten me as to what mutation and counter-nutation movements were, for example. It is written like a college textbook – you have to be wide awake to read this one!

I can’t count the times this book provided important information of a highly specific nature. A must-have reference book for any hatha yoga teacher.

BOOK REVIEW: Anatomy of Hatha Yoga by H. David Coulter | the !n(tro)verted yogi

Coulter has been practicing yoga since A Manual for Students, Teachers, and Practitioners. The rest of the chapters are on core exercises, standing postures, back bends, forward bends, twists, headstands, shoulder-stands, and meditative postures, respectively.

Very good descriptions of poses, and pictures of modifications. Lists with This Book. A good anatomy book, actually is my first coulte but I found a little too much technical and in some points was way too much for me, I’m an intermediate level yoga student and maybe with the fact that actually I never took part on a teacher training camp was way too much detailed for me, at my level, even I have been doing yoga for 5 years, and I think is too much for beginners, I don’t recommend it for them, but this is my personal opinion!

The instructions are so detailed that you sometimes get lost and need to read them over and over again beca This book is like a diamond found at the yogq yard of superficial “oh-so-spiritual” New Age literature.


Dec 04, Moira Eberle rated it liked it. What a great resource. Not a book I sat down and read page to page, but I believe a necessary book for yoga teachers to refer to and use to freshen up knowledge of any hatha training and if you teach under the umbrella of hatha.

So much detail, so interesting, and great illustrations! I tried to read it carefully and will read it again someday so I wouldn’t miss any important informations inside.

Postures for relaxation and meditation are treated last in chapter Anatomy of Hatha Yoga is the only modern authoritative source that correlates the study of hatha yoga with anatomy and physiology.

What did I like about it? It should go a long way in helping yoga achieve the scientific recognition it deserves. Third, the book discusses how postures can be safely varied for individuals with limits, as well as discussing the most advanced expression of postures for more flexible or skilled students. Decided to pickup my own copy for reference.
