Anatomy Trains® maps the ‘anatomy of connection’ – the whole-body fascial and myofascial linkages. Anatomy Trains links the individual muscles into functional complexes, each with a specific anatomy and ‘meaning’. Anatomy Trains leads to new holistic strategies for health professionals, movement teachers, and athletes to resolve complex postural and movement patterns.
With offices in both America and the UK, Anatomy Trains Australia is the new addition to the Anatomy Trains® global family, bridging the gap and bringing Australia and surrounding countries the chance to access high level learning opportunities that have previously not been accessible.
Founded by Julie Hammond, Director, - and gaining accolade from Thomas Myers - Anatomy Trains Australia’s aim is to bring high level training courses to qualified therapists of all modalities and to bring the necessary skills and expertise to students to help further their careers and open new pathways.
There are only 5 certified Anatomy Trains Teachers in the whole of Australia & New Zealand, our Director, Julie Hammond, associate Karin Gurtner, Julie Mower, Casey Gordon and certified Anatomy Trains Movement Teacher Muriel Morwtizer. Don't be fooled! If you attend an Anatomy Trains class with anybody else within Australia & New Zealand, it WILL NOT be a certified Anatomy Trains course and it will not qualify as the prerequisite for the Anatomy Trains Structural Integration Training Program.
Learn about the myofascial tissue and its role in the body, see it in context and how it is interdependent with the other body systems. From there we begin to see 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 can have many knock effects.
The Anatomy Trains concept moves beyond mechanical “cause and affect” actions of muscles to the integrative relational connections of real-life functional movement. This is a revolutionary map for analyzing soft-tissue patterns, and developing strategies for unwinding these patterns via fascial and myofascial work.
Anatomy Trains offers skills that hands-on therapists, regardless of their modality, can use to see their clients more clearly and work more effectively.
Who should attend Anatomy Trains?
The classes are designed primarily for hands-on bodyworkers who want to expand their understanding of the myofascial connections in the body and learn new skills to affect them. It is ideal for physiotherapists, massage therapists, osteopaths and chiropractors but anyone who uses manual techniques will benefit form the classes.
Many movement therapists (Pilates, Feldenkrais, Franklin and Gyrotonic etc.) have also learned much about the body by attending Anatomy Trains. The in-depth BodyReading and touch exercises have given them a profound deepening to their experience of the body. While they may continue to attend we have now also designed a new workshop to give a fuller movement based experience.
Anatomy Trains in Motion:
Movement, Stability, Coordination - get your anatomy in motion!
Whatever your movement modality - yoga, Pilates, personal training, rehabilitative exercise, or dance teachers and therapists - Anatomy Trains offers skills that movement professionals can use to see their clients more clearly and work more effectively.
Traditional anatomy is so static, but humans are constantly in dynamic movement - Anatomy Trains gives you that transmission from muscle to muscle through the fascial fabric. The Anatomy Trains concept moves beyond mechanical “cause and affect” actions of muscles to the integrative relational connections of real-life functional movement.
Completely transform your view of myofascial anatomy and expand your ability to assess your clients' postural and movement patterns.
Along with Anatomy Trains courses, you can expect the full KMI Training Program and a host of other guest workshops and international speakers.
