Shelves: nonfiction-bodywork I am reading this book again because it is just such a wonderful perspective on anatomy from a very functional perspective. I think this one is a must read for any manual or movement therapist. Feb 05, Sherrie Gingery rated it it was amazing Another perfect book for anyone interested in movement. The descriptions of how the body works to create movement and the types of movement are detailed and easy to understand.
A must-have for massage therapists and fitness instructors. This book is so informative that I am never not reading it. Jan 31, Abhilasha Purwar rated it liked it Wish the diagram were colored but the description and explanation is spot on. I have read three books on Anatomy from a Yoga perspective but fairly applicable to understand all sorts of physical exercises or movements, and my personal ranking is as follows : 1.
Anatomy of Movement by Blandine Calais-Germain 3. Yoga Anatomy by Leslie Kaminoff 1 is Phenomenal. Lays great emphasis on all aspects of musculoskeletal system like ligaments, Wish the diagram were colored but the description and explanation is spot on. Lays great emphasis on all aspects of musculoskeletal system like ligaments, tendons, aponeurosis, nerves, etc. Simple language.
Lot of space to make notes. I use it as my anatomy notebook rather than textbook. Arrange by type of pose rather than muscle group. Less detail about each muscle, and more about their state in each pose, which you can automatically figure out if you understand the muscle groups. Good diagrams, pretty broad descriptions and drawings of some portions but a great book to get the general idea.
