Course Description:

One short course. . . long-lasting results for you!

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 new and expanded 21-hour workshop format 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.

This workshop will show you how that happens, how to trace the lines of strain and, most importantly, how you can develop strategies to deal with them.

This is the first workshop to combine Anatomy Trains theory alongside structural and functional anatomy and analysis, blending together the concepts of tensegrity with elastic recoil for movement efficiency.

  • 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
  • Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function courses give you new techniques to transform structure by reaching deeper issues in the tissues.

Note: This course serves as the pre-requisite for the ATSI Professional Certification Training.

  • Anatomy Trains in Structure and Function / Structural Essentials Program
  • Functional, Fascial and Structural approaches in one program
  • Understand how the body really moves
  • Break the myths of anatomy and physiology and learn to make the appropriate changes to maximise efficiency.

Note: It is strongly recommended to take the Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function course before taking the SE courses. Familiarity with the Anatomy Trains lines and concepts is key to getting the most from the program

The Structural Essentials Series:

These regional intensives combine global postural assessment with movement and manual techniques for efficient and long-lasting results. Each of the 6 SE classes is based on consistent functional movement concepts, applied to everyday movement and our new understanding of myofascial efficiency and whole body response. Important research findings are integrated into the presentations, along with cutting-edge applications that can be used for clients on your next day in clinic.

Designed for the busy manual therapist, the SE workshops are most easily absorbed in the order outlined below but you can do them in any order as time permits.

Arches and the Legs – 3 days
Fans of the Hip – 2 ½ days
Abdomen, Chest and Breath – 2 ½ days
Tensegrity Spine – 2 days
Shoulders & Arms – 2 days
Head, Neck & Jaw – 2 days

Learning Environment:

Illustrated lecture

Open inquiry atmosphere; questions encouraged; high degree of vitality and humour

Participants will exchange palpation and practice BodyReading (visual assessment) on one another under supervised analysis of instructor and assistants.

Who Is This Workshop For:

Anatomy Trains is the perfect introduction to myofascial anatomy for any manual therapist. It is also the first essential step along the path to training in Structural Integration with the Anatomy Trains protocol.

Whilst primarily aimed at manual therapists, many movement therapists have also attended the workshop. Functional movement assessments are included within the class alongside standing and table based manual therapy. It therefore gives a range of skills and a new vocabulary to practitioners of various disciplines. The manual therapy and BodyReading elements require some degree of disrobing which is done discreetly and no one is forced to any level beyond their comfort.

Touch skills are a major focus of the workshop. While they might not be a normal part of the movement therapist’s repertoire we do encourage full participation as they also give palpation skills and understanding. These are skills that can further assist visual assessment and movement prescription.
