Using images and videos from dissection, we will review the four myofascial continuities that connect torso to hands, as well as touch on bodyreading techniques for the shoulder girdle.

Fascia 101

May 17th 5:30 -7pm 

Fascia is the fascinating biological fabric that gives us shape, and the glue that holds us together.  Long ignored, the fascial system is now a hot topic and getting its rightful due of attention, from both therapists and researchers.

Dissection Workshop

Anatomy Trains Dissection 1/2013Anatomy Trains Dissection Workshop January 2013

Laboratories of Anatomical Enlightenment

5 days in the dissection lab. Something I had never done before.

An enlightening, watershed, transformative experience that is difficult to explain.

The best analogy I can think of is that it is the difference between looking at a map and walking down the street. It was not so much that I aquired new information, although I did, and  in abundance. The main effect is a deepening of my appreciation of our various tissues. To see/ feel the attachment of the IT band on the femur was profound, as one example.

This workshop will happen again next January. All Kinesis workshops are listed here.

In the meanwhile, University of the Western States holds various workshops in their cadaver lab. There is a four hour version coming up this April.

Anatomy Trains For Movement Professionals
Two opportunities this Spring

Whatever your movement modality – yoga, Pilates, personal training, rehabilitative exercise, or dance therapy – Anatomy Trains offers skills that movement professionals can use to see their clients more clearly and work more effectively. 
Traditional anatomy is static, yet humans are constantly in dynamic movement – Anatomy Trains gives you that transmission from muscle to muscle through the fascial fabric. Thomas Myers’ Anatomy Trains® weekend intensives are holistic, fun and very useful.
The Anatomy Trains concept moves beyond mechanical “cause and affect” actions of muscles to the integrative relational connections of real-life functional movement.
Completely transform your view of myofascial anatomy and expand your ability to assess your clients’ postural and movement patterns.

Just a few of the Course Objectives:
Understand basic properties and connected nature of fascia, and tensegrity applied to fascia and human movement.
 – Be able to identify and trace the 6 major and 6 supplemental fascial meridians along which movement, tension, and postural distortion travel.
 – Be able to BodyRead™ postural patterns based on analysis of Anatomy Trains lines.

Dynamic Ligaments

 Anatomy Geek  Comments Off on Dynamic Ligaments
May 182011
 

New research is showing that muscle is not what we think it is.
http://www.anatomytrains.com/ligaments
“This means that the ligaments, far from being active only at the moment of the greatest elbow extension in your preacher curl, are dynamically active in stabilizing the joint all through the movement, during both concentric and eccentric contraction. This muscle-ligament combination Jaap termed a ‘dynament’ (by a contraction of ‘dynamic ligament’) and the implications of his findings are profound.”
