This is the book I've been waiting for! Finally, a guide to making yoga safer and more effective. I'm so grateful to Andrew McGonigle for integrating his knowledge of yoga, anatomy, physiology, and medicine into a resource that makes this esoteric information accessible to yoga practitioners and teachers alike.
'Supporting Yoga Students with Common Injuries and Conditions' by Dr Andrew McGonigle is a must-have for every Yoga Teacher. Having trained yoga teachers for over 25 years, I think this book is a resource we have long been waiting for. It's rare to find someone like Dr. McGonigle with this depth of knowledge, training and experience in anatomy and medicine as well as in Yoga, who can share their knowledge in a way that everyone can understand. Most yoga teachers are asked on an almost daily basis to support students with injuries or common medical conditions, but the right quality of training to help them do this has been missing - until now. 'Supporting Yoga Students with Common Injuries and Conditions' lays out the information we need as yoga teachers in an easy to read format, alongside a very useful reference system where you can look up particular conditions as needed. If you're a yoga teacher or a trainer, I highly recommend this book to you.
Research literally drips off every page as this book beautifully pulls together the essential anatomical information to help yoga teachers lead with even more grace and confidence. Layered on top are common injuries that might be encountered, alongside practical yoga-based solutions.
