The Anatomy of Movement by Blandine Calais-Germaine, was one of the first books I bought when I started taking yoga classes. I'd study the meticulous drawings and slowly etch the actions that my body was designed to perform, in my mind.
Some movements were easy and those that involved my hip joints were baffling. It has taken years of practice for parts of my body to comprehend what my eyes first read. I can't stop now, though. All parts of me are progressing; I think I read that somewhere.
