Next on my reading list is this series for Occult books. I am trying to read 26 Occult and 26 Fiction books this year for my Goodreads Challenge.

I have had this book for a few years now and never had the time or chance to pick it up. It took me forever to find the books since they weren’t in print (I haven’t checked to see if they are now), so I brought them used from a 3rd party seller. They all came wrapped and were brand new! I was so excited.

I am about a third of the way through the first book and I am taking notes like crazy lol. I enjoy this types of reading. I will be updating my reading list as often as I can. This book will have a complete review after I have read all three.

I remember I picked this boo up last year, like in September of so and after reading a few pages I sat it back down. I didn’t want to read another A&P book. And my first thought was this is another damn textbook and I am burnt out from school. But I decided to give it another go after asking my boyfriend which yoga book I should read. He choose this one and I figured, hey, why not give it a shot again. I am glad I did.

I only have a year of A&P under my belt and I did find it a little distracting trying to remember all the medical names of the bones and muscles and tendons in the body, and not to mention the terminology for yoga that I am not really familiar with. But that didn’t deter me, I kept on moving forward, flipping back if I needed to see what a word meant.

What I like about this book is that it goes through a pretty in-depth explanation of all the muscles and how they relate to a particular asana. What this book contains is 276 pages, 11 chapters of anatomy and how it relates to the individuals body and the basic principles behind them. Within the 11 chapters 6 of them are divided by asanas (standing, sitting, kneeling, supine, prone and arm support) which makes it easy for me, personally, to figure out which asanas I want to start with and how to divide them up and combine them on certain days of practice.

With the breakdown of how the muscles act with the body I can understand the positions better, being that I am in the medical field and I always want to have good blood flow to the tissues and the rest of my body this was actual a perfect read for me to start my year off with. I will and can be more mindful of how I stretch and what positions I put my body into. Be more cautious of pulling or pushing myself, and understanding it isn’t about touching my forehead to the floor, but more about giving my spine the stretch that it needs. I can also focus more on my breathing when it comes to certain positions and how to really breathe correctly.

I took quite a few notes from this book, and with a couple weeks practice, I will have a very easy , and body friendly yoga practice that I can commit to and not overdo. I have a tendency to overdo things. A lot lol.  I have always wanted to do yoga and this book was the perfect stepping stone for me to start my practice.

I totally recommend this book if you want to understand how the muscles in your body and bones and breathing work with one another in your different asanas.

2018 Book Challenge 

Posted in Buzz Worthy Posts with tags , , , , , , , on 01/02/2018 by Keona-Mlh aka Beauty by LTL

I fell off last year and only logged like 4 books. So this year I’m going for 52. I mean if I can binge watch these shows, then I cam binge a book. 

I’m trying to do 26 Occult and 26 Fiction books this year. I want to clear out my kindle and my book shelf so I can purchase more books lol. 

So the first book of the year is Yoga Anatomy. It has very good reviews and I want to work on yoga and breathing techniques this month so I can incorporate it into my daily workings. 

You already know a review will be done after I am finished and I will be taking notes on it. Then after I do the practical applications I will share how they have impacted my practices.
