Banyen's Description: 

This breakthrough text from a French dancer, physiotherapist and teacher is being widely used in coordination with the Pilates method of physical conditioning and structural alignment, as well as yoga and other body-arts. It is an exceptional and outstanding book for seekers of how life lives in our bodies.

Anatomy of Movement is a dynamic, integrated approach to the study of the physical structures of the musculoskeletal system and their functional relationship to the movements of the human body. In clear and concise text illustrated with more than a thousand graphic drawings, the author takes the reader on a lively tour of the muscles, bones, ligaments and joints of the arms, legs and trunk. The focus throughout the book is on anatomy not for its own sake, but in its functional relationship to the actual movements of the body in dance, exercise and other physical disciplines.

In this newly revised edition, a majority of the thousand-plus illustrations are new or have been modified by the author from the original edition. The text has also been updated, and the sequencing of the presentation of the musculoskeletal anatomy has been revised in part.

“Calais-Germain truly understands the musculoskeletal system, its functional anatomy and potential dysfunctions. This book is a ‘must-have’ for bodyworkers.”
—John Upledger,  author of Craniosacral Therapy

 

 

“This work is truly by one who understands movement. The text is a necessity for all dance teachers and students in their pursuit of further knowledge of the art form.” —Moira McCormack, Royal Academy of Dance

“Our students love it! The consistent sequencing of information about each body region helps students develop a thinking process about that part, i.e., ‘This is how it’s put together, so this is how it works.’” —Pat Archer, Brenneke School of Massage, Seattle
