Anatomy Trains

IN STRUCTURE AND FUNCTIONS COURSE

PRICE: 570€

 

Spring 2020 (The date will be published soon)

This Workshop includes:

  • Get the latest information on fascia, muscle, and movement.

  • Be able to identify the 12 myofascial meridians and their link to human growth, development, perception and consciousness.

  • Accurately “BodyRead” posture and movement; assess your clients in a new way.

  • Gain effective myofascial and movement strategies.

  • Develop treatment strategies specific to your clients’ structural and functional patterns.

Certification information

Our new format allows two pathways towards professional certification — our traditional intensive program, or through a series of short workshops coupled with online learning. Everybody needs to start with the Anatomy Trains Structure and Function 3-day overview class — where we get to know you and you get to know us. Follow up with our six regional anatomy workshops in your area or come to our 14-day intensive.

In the second phase, students apply the assessments and techniques from Part 1 to practice a 3-series protocol of Structural Integration with clinical practice on outside models in a 10-day program.

The third phase, 3 x 10-day classes in as many months, is where students are taught and tested in the full 12-series program of Structural Integration. Graduates from this program are certified to practice ATSI and join the International Association of Structural Integrators (IASI).

All along the way, you’ll get ‘hands on’ personal attention, academic and touch-skills assessments, and all the materials and skills you need to make a success in the practice of restoring natural balance and fluid movement.

 

About the course

A revolutionary map with practical results! Transform your view of myofascial anatomy and expand your ability to assess postural and movement patterns, and to create lasting fascial change with your hands. In this exciting course 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 – provided they are in some form of balance and harmony; restriction or weakness in one section can have many knock-on effects elsewhere.

Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function courses give you new techniques to transform structure by reaching deeper issues in the tissues. Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function is suitable for Manual Therapists, it also serves as the prerequisite to the ATSI Certification Program.
