Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Learning anatomy requires more than pictures and labels; it requires a way "into" the subject, a means of making sense of what is being shown. Anatomy of the Moving Body addresses that need with a simple yet complete study of the body's complex system of bones, muscles, and joints and how they function. Beautifully illustrated with more than 100 3D images, the book contains 31 lectures that guide readers through this challenging interior landscape. Each part of the body is explained in brief, manageable sections, with components described singly or in small groups. The author doesnt just name the muscles and bones but explains the terminology in lay language. Topics include the etymology of anatomical terms; origins and attachments of muscles and their related actions; discussion of major functional systems such as the pelvis, ankle, shoulder girdle, and hand; major landmarks and human topography; and structures relating to breathing and vocalization. This second edition features all-new illustrations that use a 3D digital model of the human anatomical form. The book's thoroughness, visual interest, and clear style make it ideal for students and teachers of the Alexander and Feldenkrais techniques as well as for practitioners of yoga, Pilates, martial arts, and dance.

Synopsis:

Written by a leading preponent of the Alexander Technique, Anatomy of the Moving Body offers movement educators a basic manual that provides not only drawings and names but also written lectures that tie this sometimes difficult material into a coherent series of presentations. The book is divided into accessible sections that present muscles and joints in a clear and concise manner without oversimplifying or leaving out necessary details. Each of the 31 chapters covers a basic region of the body. Included is information about bones; origins and attachments of muscles and related actions; joints, major ligaments, and actions at joints; major functional structures such as the pelvis, shoulder girdle, ankle, and hand; etymology of anatomical terms; major landmarks and human topography; and structures relating to breathing and vocalization.
