Thanks, that is very informative!

All of the anatomy articles by Julie Gudmestad have been of enormous help to me. The diagrams showing the muscles and their points of origination and insertion make such a difference to my understanding of what is going on in a pose. Please include the pictures as I often suggest to students that they look at these articles on the website. (I'm in the UK and although I get Yoga Journal I can't expect all of my class to, especially when people are trying to be more environmentally aware.)


I agree with Sonia and feel all explanations need to have a picture to explain the proper position body while you are reading the article.


This isn't too clear without diagrams etc....


Can you explain the inhalation and exhalation process as one comes in to the pose and out of the pose?
