Product Details


“A must for your yoga library! Practical and insightful (with a dash of humor), this book is a must-read for students and teachers who want to create a sustainable yoga practice that can last a lifetime.”
—RACHEL SCOTT, MSc, MFA, ERYT 500, YACEP, author of Living Yoga

“Richelle has a unique gift for translating functional anatomy into a language everyone can hear. She keeps it real and relevant, always connecting the dots of how what we do on the mat affects the
engineering of our body well beyond asana.”
—ERIN TAYLOR, RYT, founder of Athletes for Yoga and author of Hit Reset

“Richelle Ricard will challenge you to question asana cues you’ve either heard 1,000 times or uttered yourself. She boldly disrupts our assumptions and asks that we open our minds and pay exquisite attention to what is arising in our bodies as we practice. You will be a more skillful yoga teacher if you read this book!”
—KAREN SCHWISOW, ERYT 500, founder of Three Trees Yoga Teacher Training

“… essential information for every yoga teacher. Richelle brings to light the many ways that one single cue for the alignment of a pose cannot serve everybody. She tackles the important information on how anatomical difference needs to be considered in every pose and how to adjust each pose for those differences.”
—SUZY GREEN, RYT E500, C-IAYT 500 Yoga Therapy, owner of Three Trees Yoga Teacher Training

The Yoga Engineer’s Manual is a remarkable resource for conveying the complex subjects of anatomy, biomechanics, and special conditions in a way that is simple to read due to its smart organization and excellent images and visuals. Richelle has created a truly great book for teachers, students, therapists, schools, and trainers! A must-have for every practitioner who loves their body and practices yoga.” 
— STEPHANIE ADAMS, ERYT 500, YACEP, OES, ACE PT, author of Cancer Exercise Specialist Yoga

“Have you had students develop pain during or after class? Do you wonder if there’s something wrong with what you’re teaching? There might be, but it’s not your fault and there is help! The yoga industry is not supposed to replace physical medicine, and yet many people will try yoga before they seek medical help—hoping to ‘fix’ themselves in your class. Thanks to yoga’s impact on the nervous system, people often do find relief from various problems without extra guidance. But … just as many people get hurt and quit yoga forever. Let this anatomy-informed yoga field guide … serve as the remedy. Richelle Ricard’s extensive experience with massage therapy, yoga, and teaching informs her deep understanding of functional anatomy in this wonderful resource for teachers and students alike.”
— YA-LING J. LIOU, DC, author of The Everyday Pain Guide and founder of Stop Everyday Pain
