The Key Muscles of Yoga, Ray Long MD

This is an intense book that I had every intention of reading and studying, but for now all I want to do is look at the pictures. Luckily they are excellent. All the “anterior” “posterior” “agonist” “synergist”and “antagonist” got way too complicated for me, but the drawings of musculature and skeletal systems in yoga postures is amazingly helpful in visualizing what is going on during my practice. It’s written by a doctor and doesn’t dumb down the anatomy lesson but makes it much more accessible, if not quite a summer beach read.
