Yogabody is Gray's Anatomy for yogis, the definitive guide to the dynamic movement of the human body through asana. Lasater draws upon over 40 years as a yoga teacher and physical therapist in this in-depth guide to the principles of macroanatomy and kinesiology to the practice of yoga. Grouped into five sections — the locomotor system, the vertebral column, the lower extremity, the trunk, and the upper extremity — Yogabody explores the bones, muscles, nerves, joints and connective tissues of each in relation to yogic movement. It's a comprehensive guide for teachers and students that will not only increase knowledge but also one's enjoyment of asana practice. Through colorful anatomical drawings, charts and asana diagrams, Lasater brings decades-worth of insight into the body into vivid focus. Yogabody is an accessible and complete handbook for the physiology of yoga. It's a great resource for anyone interested in growing their practice through anatomical awareness. Lasater began suffering from painful arthritis when she was in her twenties, and she tried yoga hoping for some pain relief. 10 months later, she was teaching 20 classes per week and hasn't slowed down since. Her arthritis completely disappeared and she went on to complete a degree in Physical Therapy and obtain a Ph.D. in East-West Psychology. She helped found the California Yoga Teachers’ Association, Yoga Journal magazine and the Iyengar Yoga Institute of San Francisco. She lives in California and is the mother of three grown children. High Praise for Yogabody "Judith's books are always outstanding, but this one in particular will become the standard for all yoga teachers and teachers-in-training. ...I have been teaching yoga for 35 years and will recommend this book not only to other yoga teachers, but to all students who want to grow deeper into their own practices. It may have taken 20 years for this book to finally be completed, but it was sure worth the wait!" - Reader from Morrow Bay, Calif.
