Course Description:

Anatomy Trains in Motion is an in-depth 3-day course for movement and bodywork professionals who love integral anatomy and body-minded exercise applications that relate to real-life in all of its dimensions.This resource-oriented education focuses on the qualities of Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept that enhance everyday functionality and vitality as well as somatic resourcefulness; therefore self-healing.The integral anatomy of the myofascial meridians is explained in interactive lectures and experienced through body-minded movement applications. For a clear comprehension of the structural and functional aspects, anatomical structures are discussed individually and as part of a myofascial meridian that shapes posture, movement and how we feel about the body.To further connect anatomy and function, science-informed fascial qualities are exemplified and embodied with deliberate exercise examples throughout the course. In a unique way, Anatomy Trains in Motion directly links the anatomy of the myofascial meridians with the essential events of walking and body-minded movement training.Because we want to foster independent thinking and individualized learning, we encourage an inquisitive mind and facilitate understanding through movement explorations.Concluding the course, you will have a clear understanding of why the myofascial meridians are defined the way they are and why the Anatomy Trains concept is of immense value for all body-minded movement methods that aim for structural integrity.Anatomy Trains in Motion is a self-contained course that is also the first module of the Slings Myofascial Training® diploma education.Learning Objectives and GoalsAs a result of taking this course, you will:•Have a deeper understanding of the value of the Anatomy Trains concept as an integral body map for movement.•Understand and experience the map of the main myofascial tracks and bony stations of the Superficial Back Line,•Superficial Front Line, Lateral Line and Spiral Line.•Understand the course and experience the workings of the Deep Front Line, Front Arm Lines, Back Arm Lines, Back Functional Line, Front Functional Line and Ipsilateral Functional Line.•Understand the overall postural and movement functions as well as sensory qualities of the myofascial meridians.•Have essential knowledge of the interplay of muscles and fascia in motion.•Understand functional aspects of the myofascial meridians and ways to improve them with a fascia-focussed movement training.Distinguishing Course FeaturesEight features that make Anatomy Trains in Motion (ATiM) unique:1.
