The presentation of fascial anatomy in this book provides a new context for applying knowledge of the anatomical body in a practical and relevant way to movement. Applying fascial anatomy to yoga, this book offers a way to the yoga teacher of experiencing and seeing in three dimensions - the way we really move. This enables the yoga teacher to work more creatively in the real life class.

The goal of Myofascial Yoga: A Movement and Yoga Therapists Guide to Asana is to show how teaching asana should include fascia, connective tissue, as an integrative and necessary step to bring yoga asana fully into movement therapies in the West. This approach integrates Eastern and Western techniques and is truly a unique opportunity to explore ourselves from a somatic level of awareness while moving through and changing patterns that keep us from living more freely in joy and health. Tom Myers, Author writes "In the book you hold, Kirstie Segarra has laid out clearly, concisely, and usefully how the asanas relate to the Anatomy Trains, and how to take up and teach (whether teaching yourself or others) the anatomy of asana in a way that makes sense to the body and to the person. Enjoy the ride." "Intuition and scientific knowledge are not opposed, they are simply two different ways of knowing. This book allows you to blend both ways of knowing in mutual service to each other to develop your inner and your outer knowledge of yoga in your own living body." The illustrations are in honor of Tom Myers first edition of the Anatomy Trains and done in a more artistic format. Any anatomy connoisseur would relate to this choice of medium. The book does include the digital forms of the myofascial meridians for more concise detail. I recommend you look at the preview before purchasing. This book was initially designed to be used a textbook for the UNM-Taos Yoga Teacher Training Program as a guide to some of the pitfalls of teaching yoga asana. This book is not intended to teach someone how to teach asana through cueing. It is best to use this as a support to teaching or practicing yoga and as an introduction to learning the myofascial meridians.

The ability to walk upright on two legs is one of the major traits that define us as humans; yet, scientists still aren't sure why we evolved to walk as we do. In Born to Walk, author James Earls explores the mystery of our evolution by describing in depth the mechanisms that allow us to be efficient in bipedal gait. Viewing the whole body as an interconnected unit, Earls explains how we can regain a flowing efficiency within our gait--an efficiency which, he argues, is part of our natural design. This book is designed for movement therapy practitioners, physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, massage therapists, and any bodyworker wishing to help clients by incorporating an understanding of gait and its mechanics. It will also appeal to anyone with an interest in evolution and movement. Drawing on recent research from paleoanthropology, sports science, and anatomy, Earls proposes a complete model of how the whole body cooperates in this three dimensional action. His work is based on Thomas Myers's Anatomy Trains model of human anatomy, a holistic view of the human body that emphasizes fascial and myofascial connections. Earls distills the complex action of walking into a simple sequence of "essential events" or actions that are necessary to engage the myofascia and utilize its full potential in the form of elastic energy. He explains the "stretch-shortening cycle"--the mechanism that is the basis for many normal human activities--and discusses how humans take advantage of isometric contractions, viscoelastic response, and elastic recoil to minimize calorie usage. This streamlined efficiency is what enabled our first ancestors to begin to migrate not only seasonally but also permanently to new lands, thereby expanding the natural resources available to us as a species.

Every aspect of our life has a part to play in the greater ecological system, Michael Stone explains in this book. How do we bring this large view to our yoga practice? According to Stone, our responsibility as human beings is to live in a sustainable and respectful way. He says two things need to change. First, we need to understand the relationship between our actions and the effects of our actions. Second, once we see the effect of our actions in the human and non-human world, we need practical skills for learning how to make changes. Using the five principles (yama) described in the Yoga-Sutra attributed to Patanjali, Michael Stone offers a basis for rethinking ethical action and the spiritual path.

The Original Body introduces a way of moving that provides a powerful foundation for the practice of yoga and acts as a way of working in itself. The hook suggests that primal movement lies beneath and informs biomechanical principles and influences 'how we are.' The Original Body reveals a profound mobile strength forming the basis for spontaneous expression and an alternative way of being, as we discover that all yoga practices share common denominators and that we move from a universal source. The author explains how: the 'original body' reveals itself in the absence of methods and systems, and invites a depth of feeling that predates 'ideas' around yoga, the personal experience of each practioner holds the key for unlocking our true physiological nature as we pass through personal patterning and begin to move from the same primal source. Yoga teachers are invited to work with bony, soft tissue, fluid and energetic sensations, and are constantly reminded that primal movement can only be uncovered by deepening our sensory inquiry. This forms the basis for a profound approach to teaching yoga. Book jacket.
