Anatomy Trains® for Movement Professionals

Anatomy Trains® For Movement and Fitness Practitioners

by Michael Watson

Movement, Stability, Coordination – get your anatomy in motion! Whatever your movement modality – Pilates, yoga, personal training, rehabilitative exercise, or dance therapy – Anatomy Trains offers skills that movement therapists can use to work with their clients more clearly and work more effectively.Traditional anatomy is static, but humans are constantly in dynamic movement – Anatomy Trains shows you ‘the ropes’ for transmission from muscle to muscle through the fascial fabric. Our intensive introductory courses are holistic, fun and very immediately applicable. 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 and access your clients’ postural and movement patterns.

Workshop Format:

The workshop is split into roughly equal time on
  • lecture/presentation of the concepts and the lines,
  • BodyReading™ and postural / movement analysis, and
  • stretching, “awakening”, and touch-cueing techniques from our (and your) movement education library.
This course helps you:
  • BodyRead your client’s postural and movement patterns with greater accuracy and integration
  • Gain access to effective treatment strategies for resolving postural distortions, which may occur some distance from the obvious site of pain or limitation
  • Enable you to make distinct changes in your clients’ movement pattern
Course objective:
  • Understand basic properties and connected nature of fascia, and tensegrity in human movement
  • A succinct and relevant introduction to the connective tissue matrix and fascial planes
  • Be able to identify and trace the 12 myofascial 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
Learning Environment:
  • Illustrated lecture
  • Open inquiry atmosphere; questions, vitality, and humor encouraged
  • Participants will exchange palpation and practice BodyReading (visual assessment) on one another under supervised analysis of instructor and assistants

Who Should Attend

This workshop is for licensed physiotherapists, or physiotherapy assistants, manual therapists, osteopaths, massage therapists or movement practitioners who are interested in myofascial release.
