Anatomy Trains with Lauri Nemetz

Saturday, November 3rd, 11:00am – 6:00pm & Sunday, November 4th 9:00am – 5:00pm

The map of Anatomy Trains®, as created by Tom Myers, explores distinct myofascial linkages and provides a means to understand holistic human body movement. Movers of all professions (Pilates, personal trainers, gyrotonic, yoga, martial arts, PTs, dancers, creative arts therapists and more) can benefit from this weekend course that brings the Anatomy Trains® book to life through a blend of lecture, experientials and basic BodyReading.

Anatomy is often taught via the individual muscles, but we will explore the myofascial meridians that link muscle to muscle through the fascial fabric to make sense of the moving body. Gain an understanding of latest information in fascial science, and explore creative new ways of how to problem solve movement patterns through this relational anatomy. Work with your clients more clearly and effectively. This course is an overview to the Anatomy Trains concepts for all movement professionals, and may be taken as a stand-alone course, as an intro to further specialty courses, or a refresher of the Anatomy Trains concepts in action.

$400 per person; early bird rate of $375 (until September 30th, 2018.) Registration required.
