If you know us, you know we love giveaways — book giveaways in particular. And book giveaways of the yogadorky sort get us even more giddy because it gives us a chance to completely nerd out. This time we’ll nerd, dork, geek out over something we can all related to — anatomy!
WIN: We’re giving away 3 signed copies of Anatomy And Yoga: A Guide for Teachers and Students by Ellen Saltonstall. Here’s what people are saying about the book:
“Finally! A comprehensive anatomy book especially for yoga students. Ellen’s clear and detailed explanations of the anatomy and biomechanics of movement specifically tailored to yoga practitioners are a gift to teachers and students alike. As a teacher, teacher trainer and student of yoga, I’ll refer to this book for years to come.” — Barrie Risman, Co-director World Spine Care Yoga Project, Montreal, Canada
“This step-by-step anatomy for yoga book is the best I’ve seen, with a blend of yogic wisdom and anatomical sophistication. Meticulously detailed but not obscuring the overview, relevant yet profound, the work gracefully combines many elements, like a modern (and ancient) dance. I cannot recommend any other anatomy book as highly as this one, and encourage every yogi, whether practicing for one day or a century, to read it for knowledge and for pleasure. John Karapelou’s beautiful pictures are simple (but not too simple), and unlike most anatomical pictures, they are calming.” — Loren Fishman MD, B.Phil., (oxon.) Columbia University
