Anatomy Trains for Movement Therapists (The whole class)

Set your anatomy knowledge free! Thomas Myers’ Anatomy Trains® weekend intensives are holistic, fun and very useful. Completely transform your view of myofascial anatomy and expand your ability to assess your clients’ posture and movement.

Course Objectives:
– Understand basic properties and connected nature of fascia, and tensegrity applied to fascia and human movement.
– A succinct and relevant introduction to geometry/character of the connective tissue, and the topology of fascial planes
– 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
– Apply knowledge to construct alternative movement strategies to help unwind and resolve the patterns observed.
