Our goal in creating this slideshow (a work in progress) is to deepen your understanding of Yoga from an anatomical perspective. The slides advance automatically, but you can switch to manual mode by clicking any image, or using the < PREV | NEXT > feature.
Primal Pictures’ 3D Anatomy for Yoga has been an amazing resource for this project, providing access to clear and accurate images, including 3D views of the musculoskeletal anatomy of many Yoga poses. The text accompanying the slides is our own.
We’ll be adding more slides in the weeks and months to come!
Precautionary note: Any medical questions regarding contraindications and cautions or whether or not to proceed with particular practices or postures should be referred either to a health professional, or a Yoga teacher who has experience working with medical problems in a therapeutic setting supervised by health professionals.
