Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
The underlying theme of the book is integration. David Keil outlines how yoga teachers and practitioners can utilize a deeper understanding of their anatomy as they approach the larger scheme of yoga. How do the supposed "parts and pieces" of the body synchronize to support integrated movement? Finally, how do the various yoga postures interrelate from the perspective of functional anatomy? Beautifully illustrated throughout with colour images and photographs to clearly explain the concepts and asanas, Functional Anatomy of Yoga will assist you in reaching new heights in your yoga practice using the "laboratory" of the body and the tools of yoga asana.
Biografía del autor
David began teaching anatomy as an instructor of kinesiology at Miami's Educating Hands School of Massage from 1999-2003. David developed a fun, informal and informative style of teaching. David brought his unique style and ability to make anatomical concepts simple, to the yoga world in 2008, with the creation of the YogAnatomy DVD series. He is well known for delivering the complex and sometimes difficult topic of anatomy in a way that is very accessible and understandable to yoga practitioners. He emphasizes that fully understanding anatomy within a yoga practice ultimately comes from doing the practice and having the experience of your anatomy.

As the title suggests this is an anatomy book for practitioners of yoga. Whether you are a student or a teacher you can learn how your body works. I think even if you are med student you may like this book as it will help you understand you patients. This book is written from a very human perspective. Most anatomy books by contrast are very dry. If reading this book gets you interested in yoga, even better.
The dvd by David Keil was also helpful.
I appreciate what David is trying to do, and despite the self-servingness of the paragraph at the end of the first section explaining why his approach is cool, I do agree that the best way to learn anatomy specifically to apply to yoga is with the body being rotated and in motion, rather than with the body always appearing oriented in the same direction. I also quite like that he uses yoga postures for a lot of the examples. That being said... this did not work for me.
His analogies in general confuse me. I do not see them as analogous to the thing being described.
He has a tendency to ask a question, then take 3-7 paragraphs to answer that question, but it's not readily apparent throughout those paragraphs that they are answering the question, which leaves me wondering why the heck we are talking about X when we were just talking about Y and how the two are connected. Then at the end he connects it back... which is nice, but if you're like me, you need the connection first so that you have a framework for the 3-7 paragraphs and can actually understand and retain the information. Instead I have to just read them all over again.
The pictures are sparse. For heavens' sake, it's an anatomy book. This is probably the biggest issue for me as I am a very big on illustrations for grasping (no pun intended!) The Big Picture.
And lastly, he introduces actual technical terms, but then only uses them once during the definition. For example, he defined periosteum (the thin outer layer around a bone) and then in later paragraphs referred to the "thin layer outside of the bone." It would help solidify the vocabulary if he actually used it in context; otherwise all of the technical information seems like a throwaway.
I am admittedly a more technical person by nature. If you are too, though, this might not be the best choice for learning yogic anatomy.
