ANATOMY TRAINS STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION
Since its first appearance in 2001, Anatomy Trains has been translated into 12 languages, which has led to Anatomy Trains workshops taught around the world. We are touched and encouraged by the support Anatomy Trains has received from a wide variety of health and movement professionals.
We are pleased to host the new core certification program: Anatomy Trains Structural Integration (ATSI – formerly known as KMI). The ATSI program is based on my development of Ida Rolf’s pioneering work, progressed for the electronic age.
The ATSI Professional certification is done in 4 Steps:
Step 1: Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function
Step 2: ATSI Part I – Structural Essentials – 6 workshops
Step 3: ATSI Part II – Structural Strategies – 10 Days
Step 4: ATSI Part III – Structural Integration – 31 Days
(You have to have completed Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function, ATSI Part I Structural Essentials & ATSI Part II Structural Strategies to be accepted into ATSI Part III – Structural Integration)
EDUCATIONAL PATHWAY TO ATSI
ATSI CERTIFICATION PHASES
Step 1. Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function
Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function is suitable for Manual Therapists, and interested Movement Therapists.
In this new and expanded 21-hour workshop format you will learn about the myofascial tissue and its many roles in the body. You will begin to appreciate how the body incorporates the Anatomy Train Lines to create easy and graceful movement
Upon successful completion of Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function, students are qualified to attend the Structural Essentials workshops
Step 2. ATSI Part I : Structural Essentials
Structural Essentials is the beginning of your ATSI Structural Integration journey and will be a mixture of Manual techniques, theory and body reading.
There are 6 Structural Essentials modules that form Part 1 of the ATSI training. You must take all 6 modules to be able to carry on through the training. The modules are best absorbed in the order suggested below, but can be taken in any order
The 6 Structural Essentials modules are a set of intensive soft-tissue technique courses. These modules are part of the ATSI training but can also be taken as stand alone modules if you just want to further your anatomy knowledge and gain new techniques. They are divided into functional regions.
ATSI Structural Essentials Modules
Module 1: Legs & Arches
Module 2: Fans of the Hip
Module 3: Abdomen, Chest & Breath
Module 4: Tensegrity Spine
Module 5: Shoulders & Arms
Module 6: Head, Neck & Jaw
Step 3. ATSI Part II: Structural Strategies
Integrate all of the information you have learned in the previous workshops (Anatomy Trains & the 6 Structural Essential workshops to create one powerful package: our unique 3 session series.
During this in-depth and intensive 10-day training you will develop a full-body vision, applying the postural assessments already learned and integrating them into a complete understanding of the relationships throughout the body. Using Thomas Myers’ Anatomy Trains as the model for the interpretation of structural and functional compensations, you will be equipped with the functional analysis tools to be able to design and perform the Structural Bodywork series, which can produce powerful and lasting changes for your clients.
Step 4. ATSI Part III: Structural Integration
The final piece of the ATSI Training takes you through the 12 series’. In this 31 day program students will build on their knowledge and experience in learning the anatomy, theory, and practice of the 12 series of Structural Integration. Students will work with classroom partners and also with outside models, receiving valuable feedback and guidance from the highly skilled and experienced Anatomy Trains faculty.
- Supervised instruction in the 12 series
- Full spectrum clinical application
- Starting and building a practice
- Quizzes, review of client session notes, an overview essay and manual work evaluation
- Graduation is at the discretion of part 3 instructors
Certification, website and directory listings are dependent on completion of all course work.
