Bandha Yoga: Scientific Keys to Unlock the Practice of Hatha Yoga

Bandha Yoga: Scientific Keys to Unlock the Practice of Hatha Yoga has fantastic illustration of the skeletal and muscular framework for doing yoga. The book is expensive at $48, but its unique perspective makes it different than any yoga book that I have seen so far. There is a 32 page sample chapter that you can examine to see if you want to bite.
