This site is envisaged as a resource for everything to do with Yoga Anatomy. Articles, videos, book reviews, workshop listings, interviews, news and much more. Things are changing daily so check back regularly or subscribe to our newsletter (available in the right sidebar), and I will email you when important content arrives.
One of the main features of the site will be the number of articles available, including topics such as injuries, how muscles are involved in asana, alignment, posture, energy and breath. Of course everything can be related to anatomy and physiology in some way, so don't expect there to be just muscle and bone posts. Interviews will be another hot subject and I will be trying on your behalf to secure chats with the 'big names'. I have really been turned off by sites that keep making you load new pages so they can change the ads, so here you will find, minimal ads, all the article on one page, large viewing area, and each article will be able to be saved or printed.
If you would like to submit content please contact me using this form. If you know of a great teacher who you think we should contact for content please email us also. This site is being developed out of a love of yoga anatomy and I know there are lots of you out there with similar feelings, if you have any ideas of stuff you would like to see on the site please feel free to get in contact. This is going to be a journey!
Practice safe and thanks for visiting
