Take Your Yoga Practice One Step Further With This Book

Critical Anatomy….

Practical Anatomy for the Modern Day Yogi. This book was written by Lauren Padula – a super knowledgeable yoga instructor!

Yoga is an amazing form of exercise! It has the power to heal yogis from the inside out. It can increase your strength and flexibilty, help calm monkey brain and so much more…If it’s done right.

I found out in this book that since 2012, the number of yoga practitioners in the United States has increased by 50%. That’s huge! And while I’m supportive of anyone who wants to practice yoga, it also makes me nervous.

Here’s why…

Your yoga practice & injuries

So many awesome adjustments in Critical Anatomy!

If you practice yoga haphazardly or without proper guidance, it can actually do you more harm than good. While we all have the best intentions for our yoga practice, we could be hurting ourselves instead.

Here are some interesting facts also from Critical Anatomy:

  • One in every ten yoga practitioners experience musculoskeletal pain
  • This stat is 10 times higher than previously thought
  • 20% of existing injures are actually made worse by doing yoga

Changing the way you practice yoga

Luckily, with a little education, we can change the way we practice yoga for the better! This is where Critical Anatomy comes in.

This book is packed full of info about the systems of the body, common yoga injuries, how to fix and prevent these injuries, and proper alignment in common yoga postures. It also includes a workbook so you can test your knowledge before applying it on yourself or clients!

I truly believe that it’s incredibly important to pay attention to your form when doing any form of exercise, including yoga. And that’s why I love this book!

In a short period of time I was able to go through the entire book with a much better understanding of yoga postures and proper alignment. I feel much more confident in my practice. And that I won’t injure myself along the way.

I believe that proper form in my yoga practice will not only prevent injuries, but that it will also enhance my spiritual, energetic and mental practice along the way.
