The essential introduction to the anatomy of 30 key yoga asana, or poses, this detailed guide explains what happens in your body on an anatomical level during the practice of yoga. Beginning with a clear breakdown of the musculoskeletal system and an introduction to yoga itself, the book explores 30 key poses in detail, with an easy to follow step-by-step advice on how to achieve the proper posture safely for each one plus options for practical modifications to allow for individual ability and injury. Alongside an in-depth analysis of each pose, including notes on the type of muscle activation, plane of movement, and axis of the spine, stunning full-colour illustrations show the musculature at work, allowing you to visualise what is happening in different parts of your body during each pose and increasing your awareness of anatomy. This is a must-have book for all serious yoga students, trainee yoga teachers, and all those with an interest in how the body works during movement.

Relative to the extensive neuroscientific work on seated meditation practices, far less studies have investigated the neural mechanisms underlying movement-based contemplative practices such as yoga or tai chi. Movement-based practices have, however, been found to be effective for relieving the symptoms of several clinical conditions, and to elicit measurable changes in physiological, neural, and behavioral parameters in healthy individuals. An important challenge for neuroscience is therefore to advance our understanding of the neurophysiological and neurocognitive mechanisms underlying these observed effects, and this Research Topic aims to make a contribution in this regard. It showcases the current state of the art of investigations on movement-based practices including yoga, tai chi, the Feldenkrais Method, as well as dance. Featured contributions include empirical research, proposals of theoretical frameworks, as well as novel perspectives on a variety of issues relevant to the field. This Research Topic is the first of its kind to specifically attempt a neurophysiological and neurocognitive characterization that spans multiple mindful movement approaches, and we trust it will be of interest to basic scientists, clinical researchers, and contemplative practitioners alike.
