Kristin’s MetaAnatomy invites us into a smart and sassy conversation that reminds us of the wonder of the human form with reverence. She is making the study of anatomy super accessible for teachers and future teachers of yoga.
You don’t have to be a yoga-teacher-anatomy-geek to laugh your way through MetaAnatomy, even as you learn the body systems’ basics in this well-written and well-illustrated new book. In addition to the humor, Leal includes quotes from Patanjali, the Upanishads, Western dancers, pop singers, along with literary lights from Herman Melville to Mary Oliver. If you’re like me and think you have no head for science, you will be teased into a deeper understanding of bones, joints, spine, nervous system and even your own yoga practice.
Wow! This is a brilliant book: clear concise and, believe it or not, lighthearted and spiritual. Kristin literally brings the science of anatomy to life and gives us all what we need to both understand and celebrate the knowledge of the physical form. Yoga practitioners and non-practitioners alike, who in the past may have felt overwhelmed or less than inspired by the subject, now have a luscious resource to see that the beauty of the human is in the details. I will strongly recommend this book to all my students for years to come.
Kristin Leal is a gifted teacher with an inspiring passion for anatomy. She breaks the body down in bite size pieces to help even the not-so-anatomy-loving understand and embrace muscles, bones, joints and beyond. I highly recommend this book (and her classes) for teachers and students of yoga.
Kristin Leal has the remarkable talent of making anatomy come alive! In this book Kristin brings you into the body like going on a road trip, enjoying all the scenery of your body and how it functions. With brilliance, humor, and expert knowledge, Kristin reveals to us what we are made of and how we work. Reading this book will help you understand your Self and how you function!
