The Anatomy of Exercise and Movement: for the Study of Dance, Pilates, Sport and Yoga by Jo Ann Staugaard-Jones
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"The Anatomy of Exercise & Movement" serves as a bridge between biomechanics and the practice of sport, pilates, yoga, and dance, providing the reader with a complete understanding of how the body functions whilst being exercised. Jo Ann Staugaard-Jones' background in movement sciences has led to a deep interest in the ability of the body to heal itself, specifically through knowledge of muscles and what they can do. Awareness of this potential is key to the prevention of injuries, obviating the need for joint surgery, and the power to maintain health, weight, posture, strength, and perform well in sports are all clearly addressed in "The Anatomy of Exercise & Movement".
