I have read three books on Anatomy from a Yoga perspective but fairly applicable to understand all sorts of physical exercises or movements, and my personal ranking is as follows:# 1.

Have great great things about Ray Long 's book but yet to read that one, maybe that can up this one.# 2 is Good.

page 198 -flexion of pelvis ( salsa dancing/hamster lordosis); extension of pelvis ( yoga) -greater trochanter& lesser trochanter= muscles attachment roughened projections on femur-The head of the femur is best fitted into the socket when femur is at a 90 degree angle relative to the trunk ( kneeling) page 204-Variations of the hip= you could possibly tell how the bones of the femur and hip socket are structured based on the position a yoga student places their hips/legs ... although this could be easy to determine.
