Course Description: We are so excited to be back in the lab with Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers and master dissector Todd Garcia in Todd’s Laboratory of Anatomical Enlightenment in Boulder, Colorado. Join students from around the world and from all types of manual, movement and fitness professions to explore the real human form – not the images you get from books.Tom and Todd will be providing lectures and practices during breaks, so you can embody what you have learned in the lab through your own movement and understandingYou will be working on your own projects, supported by lab assistantsYou will be at a table with 7 other studentsThere will be at least 6 different donors for comparative anatomyAll our work will be with untreated cadavers – otherwise difficult to find – meaning no chemical smell and a much more ‘true-to-life’ view of fascia and tissue colouring. Untreated tissue moves through the same range of motion as the living body, and offers a very different perception of the behavior of fascial tissues.These are not prosections or mere demonstrations – you are doing the dissecting yourself from Day 1. Tom and Todd will offer tutorials, explanations, or brief lectures on our collective findings. No previous experience with dissection is necessary to attend this course.In 5 days you will go from skin to bone, including exploration of the superficial fascial layers, the myofascia and Anatomy Trains, the organs and their attachments, and the brain and nervous system. Pick your own project or we can help you find one – an opportunity to follow your own lights in the body, as well as from observing the fine skills of master dissector Todd Garcia who will be demonstrating on a dedicated table.Emotional and spiritual aspects of the experience are very much respected – it’s a voyage of discovery, and an encounter with mortality. We understand and are supportive.Nothing can replace doing dissection first hand, with your own hands and eyes. What is it you want to know about? What do you want to see for yourself?
