Fascial Dissection 2019 – January 7-11
January 7 - January 11$2400
Anatomy Trains offers a unique opportunity to work your own dissection projects with fascial expert and Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers and master dissector Todd Garcia in Todd’s Laboratory of Anatomical Enlightenment in Boulder, Colorado. This annual event draws students worldwide from all types of manual, movement and fitness professions in an exploration of the real human form – not the images you get from books.
All our work will be with untreated cadavers – otherwise difficult to find – meaning no chemical smell and a much more ‘true-to-life’ view of fascia and other tissue. Untreated tissue is so much closer to the living body, and offers a very different perception of the behavior of fascial tissues.
These are not prosections or mere demonstrations – you are doing the dissecting yourself from Day 1. Tom and Todd will offer tutorials, explanations, or brief lectures on our collective findings. No previous experience with dissection is necessary to attend this course.
In 5 days you will go from skin to bone, including exploration of the superficial fascial layers, the myofascia and Anatomy Trains, the organs and their attachments, and the brain and nervous system. Pick your own project or we can help you find one – an opportunity to follow your own lights in the body, as well as learn from what everyone else is doing.
Emotional and spiritual aspects of the experience are very much respected – it’s a voyage of discovery. Nothing can replace doing dissection first hand, with your own hands and eyes. What is it you want to know about? What do you want to see for yourself?
