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

A revolutionary map with practical results! In this new and expanded 22,5-hour workshop format you will learn about the myofascial tissue and its many roles in the body. Participants will see the fascial tissues in context and how they are 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 on effects. 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.

What is Anatomy Trains in Structure and Function

The Anatomy Trains workshop series is based on Thomas Myers book Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians for Manual Therapists and Movement Professionals. 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. We will address differential diagnosis to help identify for motor control or soft tissue restrictions and where they may be coming from.

Anatomy Trains in Structure and Function course content

This is an exciting and fun workshop delivered with clarity and with your practice in mind – you will have useful and usable skills by the end of the four days. Research will be referenced showing the roles of fascia in the body, making this an up to date and highly effective skill-building workshop.

Learning goals

Learn to see and correct the myofascial patterns of the body. By gradually building BodyReading skills you will learn to interpret movement and postural patterns. We all want to have a 3-dimensional vision of the body and this workshop is the first step towards establishing those skills for yourself.

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.

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 the pre-requisite for the ATSI Professional Certification Training. Accreditation points are given for Stichting Keurmerk. You can request the points yourself if you are with KRF-NL (KNGF) or PQK.

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 maximize 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

Begin your journey with: Anatomy Trains in Structure and Function and our lead teachers Don Thompson and Michael Watson.

Continue your journey with:

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. Check our calendar for dates.

  1. Arches and Legs
  2. Fans of the Hip
  3. Abdomen, Breath, and Chest
  4. Tensegrity Spine
  5. Shoulders & Arms
  6. Head, Neck, & Jaw

We all have our own learning styles, for some the weekends spread over the year works the best, others prefer to do all in one go. So we decided to give you both! For the first time in Europe we are offering you the full SE series, all 6 courses, in one go. This means less travelling, less weekends away from your family, and the chance to spend 2 weeks immersed in the Anatomy Trains world with Anatomy Trains Structural Integration Part 1

The next step on your Anatomy Trains Structural Integration pathway is Anatomy Trains Structural Integration Part II. To complete your Structural Integration training you can follow the Anatomy Trains Structural Integration Part III.
