Synopsis: An innovative yoga manual for teachers, trainers, and advanced students--craft a safer, more effective yoga practice informed by anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics.

Supplemented with more than 100 illustrations and photos, The Yoga Engineer's Manual makes yoga anatomy simple, clear, and accessible. With tips, tools, and practical advice for on-the-mat applications, this essential resource is written for yoga teachers and practitioners of all traditions. It also includes exercises, study guides, and flashcards for an interactive and continuous learning experience.

According to author and yoga teacher trainer Richelle Ricard, to experience the full benefits of yoga, success starts with understanding the body: its mechanics, physiology, and our own individual strengths and limitations. Too often, outdated yoga modalities and rote memorization fail trainers and students with a one-size-fits-all approach. Here, The Yoga Engineer's Manual introduces the methods, postures, asanas, and yoga-classroom skills that teachers need to confidently lead safe and effective classes that work for all students.

Ricard also offers a step-by-step, layer-by-layer examination of the body's connection between the physical and subtle energies activated through one's personal practice, and discusses dynamic breathing and its link to probing the profound depths of the Self.
