The Anatomy Course-Part 1, Musculoskeletal and Respiratory

Have you ever wondered what muscles are working when you exercise or when you are doing Pilates? This course will explore specific movements and the musculoskeletal structures that support the trunk and lumbopelvic hip complex. You will develop an understanding of the importance of breath, how to breathe correctly and learn about the muscles of respiration and the thoracic cage. Through careful analysis and exploration of the “corset” muscles, including the transversus abdominis, multifidus, psoas, and pelvic floor, we will examine how they are linked to movement. 

This anatomy course is a two-day workshop totaling 16 hours; it is a stand alone course that is also one of a three-part anatomy series.  This course is a prerequisite for the Matwork Program.
