An excellent resource for teachers and students of yogasana, medical professionals, and bodywork practitioners, A Handbook for Yogasana Teachers presents novel aspects of physiology and neuroscience as they apply to the practice of yoga. If you have ever wondered why we do yogasana as we do, you will likely find the answers within these pages.


"A Handbook for Yogasana Teachers provides a lucid blending of Eastern and Western science that helps us understand the human body from both perspectives! It is a major contribution to both medicine and yoga."

Rajvi Mehta, editor, Yoga Rahasya, Mumbai

"This book is quite obviously the result of extensive thought and effort on the part of the author. It contains a wide range of information, blending present-day anatomy and physiology with knowledge of yoga from ancient texts."

Dr. Shirley Telles, Swami Vivekananda Yoga Research Foundation, Bangalore

"There is a paucity of books such as this handbook ... I liked the colorful descriptions and stories interspersed throughout."

Lois Steinberg, teacher and therapist, Iyengar Yoga Institute of Champaign-Urbana

"The book is unique in its mixture of scientific explanation and practical application ... As a practicing Iyengar teacher with no medical background, I have had little choice but to accept the words of B. K. S. and Geeta Iyengar in their description of the effects and benefits of poses ... I have had no reason to doubt them, but when teaching students with a Western mind, it helps to present them with a 'scientific reason' why."

Renata Cardinal, certified Iyengar yoga teacher, Watchung Yoga Arts Center, New Jersey

"Mel Robin's labor of love has combined his knowledge of modern anatomy and physiology and traditional yoga beliefs (mostly in the Iyengar tradition) together with personal opinion and analysis based on years of teaching and practice within this tradition. By painstakingly collecting this material together, he has done a great service to the yoga community, especially those with an interest in yoga therapy and the intersection between yoga and Western medicine."

Dr. Ruth Gilmore, faculty, Yoga Therapy Centre, London

"A Handbook for Yogasana Teachers is useful for yoga teachers and serious yoga students who wish to bridge their understanding of Western and Eastern concepts. It may help practitioners of other Eastern methods of healing find ways to explain what they are doing to Western students or clients. Western doctors who want to understand Eastern healing methods will find the book extremely beneficial."

Jessie Thompson, director, the Yoga Loft of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
