The Anatomy Trains® bodymap lays out the fascia and muscles that are connected in meridians throughout the body.

Learn to map the pattern and shape
the change – no matter what your modality in the manual therapy and movement worlds. All of the 12 ‘myofascial meridians’ join the individual muscles into functional complexes – each with a precise anatomy and ‘meaning’ in human posture and movement. Grasp of the Anatomy Trains® system leads to practical new strategies to improve stability, coordination, and resolve long-standing dysfunctional patterns.

Workshop Format:

This 2 day workshop spends roughly equal time on 1 lecture/presentation of the concepts and the lines, 2 BodyReadingTM and postural / movement analysis, and

3 stretching, “awakening”, and touch- cueing techniques from our (and your) movement education library.

This course helps you:

  • BodyReadTM your client’s postural and movement patterns with greater accuracy and integration – to get
    to the cause, not the symptom.
  • Enable you to make global and meaningful changes in your clients’ movement pattern.

Course Objectives:

• Understand basic properties and connected nature of fascia, and tensegrity design applied to fascia and human movement.

• A succinct and relevant introduction to the fascial layers, and the properties (and debunk some of the myths) of your body’s connective tissues.

• 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 BodyReadTM postural patterns based on analysis of Anatomy Trains lines.

• Apply knowledge to construct alternative movement strategies to help unwind and resolve the patterns observed.

Learning Environment:

  • Illustrated lecture.
  • Open inquiry atmosphere; questions encouraged; high degree of vitality and humor.
  • Participants will exchange palpation and practice BodyReadingTM (visual assessment) on one another under supervised analysis of instructor and assistants.
