Product description

Anatomy of Movement presents 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 guides 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.

Author information

Blandine Calais-Germain is the celebrated author of Anatomy of Movement, Anatomy of Movement: Exercises, The Female Pelvis: Anatomy and Exercises, and Anatomy of Breathing. Her lifelong involvement with dance, both as performer and teacher, led to an interest in other physical disciplines and to more formal study of the complex and integrated movements of the body. She studied physiotherapy at the French School of Orthopedics and Massage in Paris, and subsequently developed an innovative method for teaching the physical structures of anatomy in relation to movement, which she teaches at workshops in France to students from all over the world.

Review quote

"A great study companion for any human anatomy course, and perfect for ACE-certified professionals or those studying to take the ACE exam." - American Council on Exercise, Recommended Reading List "We actively encourage all members of the Romana's Pilates(R) instructor network, as well as trainees in our instructor training program, to read this book. We believe it's a great source of information to heighten one's understanding and awareness of how the body moves." - Daria Pace, Instructor Trainer, Romana's Pilates(R) "Calais-Germain truly understands the musculoskeletal system, its functional anatomy and potential dysfunctions. This book is a 'must-have' for bodyworkers." - John E. Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., author of Craniosacral Therapy "Anatomy of Movement is a wonderfully concise and accessible resource for the training of instructors at the New York City Ballet Workout." - John-Mario Sevilla, Manager of School Programs, New York City Ballet "A beautifully thought-out and exceptionally well-illustrated book." - Massage "Fills a great clinical need. No other book describes function and structural realities of movement so clearly and simply." - Michael Smith, M.D. "This work is truly by one who understands movement. Calais-Germain shows her respect for the logic of human anatomy and biomechanics, and reveals her experience in dance. The text is a necessity for all dance teachers and students in their pursuit of further knowledge of the art form." - Moira McCormack, MSc, MCSP, SRP, Lecturer in Anatomy, 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, M.S., L.M.P., A.T.C., Director of Education, Brenneke School of Massage, Seattle
