Publisher Comments:

This is Pilates as you've never seen it before.

With detailed descriptions, step-by-step instruction, and stunning full-color anatomical illustrations, Pilates Anatomy takes you inside the exercises and programs that will tone the body, stabilize the core, improve balance, and increase flexibility. Using the original mat work of Joseph Pilates, you'll see how key muscles are used, how variations and minor adjustments can influence effectiveness, and how breathing, alignment, posture, and movement are all fundamentally linked.

Choosing from over 45 exercises, you can target a particular body region and delve deeper to stretch, strengthen, and finely coordinate specific muscles. You'll also find techniques for breathing, concentration, and self-awareness for a unique exercise experience that enhances your mind and your body.

Whether you are just beginning to explore the beauty and benefits of Pilates or have been practicing for years, Pilates Anatomy is a one-of-a-kind resource that you'll refer to again and again.

Book News Annotation:

Isacowitz and Clippinger (functional anatomy, California State U., Long Beach) draw on 60-plus combined years of experience in the study, performance, practice, and teaching of Pilates to create a text for all levels of Pilates professionals and enthusiasts, which is also suitable for the many different approaches to Pilates. Based on the original matwork and publications of Joseph Pilates, the opening chapters explain the six key principles of Pilates; the anatomical aspects of spine, core, and body alignment; and muscles and movement analysis in relation to matwork. Subsequent chapters provide detailed descriptions, step-by-step instruction, and clear anatomical illustrations for 45 exercises designed to stretch, strengthen, and finely coordinate specific muscles to tone the body, stabilize the core, improve balance, and increase flexibility. No subject index is included. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
