There has been a lot of talk about the “yoga body” on IAYB lately, so it’s fitting that we’re giving a way a book of the same title. But it’s not that “yoga body” book, or that other “yoga body” book. This time around, we’ve teamed up with beloved sponsor Rodmell Press to give away three copies of Judith Hanson Lasater’s Yogabody: Anatomy, Kinesiology and Asana to lucky readers.
Yogabody has been described as “the Gray’s Anatomy for yoga teachers and students.” The book is a comprehensive and yet accessible introduction to the design and movement of the human body, written especially for people who teach or study yoga. It contains color anatomical drawings, black-and-white diagrammatic asana illustrations, and helpful charts.
And it could be yours! All you have to do is answer this skill-testing question: How does understanding anatomy help you understand yourself?
To enter, leave a comment below with the answer to the skill-testing question before 5pm EST on Friday, December 13, 2013. Three readers will be drawn at random and each will receive one copy of the book.
BONUS: learn more about Judith’s vast knowledge of kinesiology and anatomy, and why every yoga teacher should have a basic understanding of these concepts, in this Yoga U Online audio interview.
**Please note that the email addresses of all comments will be added to the IAYB weekly email list; if you’d rather not be added, simply write OPT OUT at the end of your comment.
