 Anatomy of Movement: Exercises (Revised) (View larger image)

Anatomy of Movement: Exercises, the companion volume to Anatomy of Movement, describes and illustrates, through hundreds of photographs and drawings, a comprehensive series of exercises involving the most common movements of the body. Over a hundred new illustrations were added in this revised edition. The exercises were chosen on the basis of their effectiveness and with concern for their safety. Some are designed to focus on strengthening a particular region or muscle group, others the entire body. Each exercise prepares the body to respond well to the demands of particular movements. Together they serve as a basis for the more specialized movements associated with various physical disciplines and therapies. Presentation follows the sequencing in Anatomy of Movement. For each body region the authors describe characteristic movements; potential sources of stiffness or laxity and how to detect, prevent, and overcome them; how to strengthen specific muscles or muscle groups; and how to coordinate movements. This is followed by "practice pages" on which specific exercises are demonstrated. About the author 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. Andree Lamotte [Gary: put accent over the first –e in Andree] is also a dancer and has taught dance since 1962. She currently heads the center for Danse-Creation (founded by Anne-Marie Debatte in the French town of Lille), which provides training in both dance and movement studies. Reviews: "Anatomy of Movement and Anatomy of Movement: Exercises describe the bones, muscles and joints, how they move, how to exercise specific and coordinated parts--with illustrations, photos and text that make it comprehensible even to someone like me, who's taken nary a class in anatomy, physiology or kinesiology." —Molly Martin, Pacific Magazine "For the client who asks for stretches or exercises to do, there is sure to be something appropriate [here], and the photographs simplify explanation. The practice pages and coordination exercises offer plenty of inspiration for movement sessions as well." —Rolf Lines [Authors] 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.
