Functional Anatomy for Movers and Teachers

Do you struggle applying anatomical cues in class? Do you want to learn about an old injury and how to keep it safe going forward? Do you want to understand how strength and flexibility actually work and then what to do to improve them?

Krista Loveless combines her teaching experience with years of academic investigation to bring an anatomy class to movement teachers and students alike. The goal is to learn the inner structures of the body in an intimate way so we can make positive physical changes in ourselves and others. Understanding this tissue that we are bound to enables freedom to move it, care for it, and respect it. All of these anatomy courses stem from one key belief, “our physical body is smart”. Every limitation, pain, or instability is our tissue doing what it is supposed to do. We may not fully understand what is happening but through a respectful process we may start to appreciate all of these subtle body nuances and better learn to work alongside them.

These workshops are divided by region including the respiratory system, pelvis, spine, hips, legs, feet, shoulders, arms, hands, and neck. The next series will be offered in the Fall of 2019 and courses will run on Saturdays from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Dates and enrollment buttons will be confirmed and posted soon!
