Integrative Anatomy for Dancers: Fascia, Form, & Flow
First of its kind! This groundbreaking course explores the belly dancing body and Yogini body through the lens of Fascia, for an integrative approach. Course includes an introduction to Fascia (What it is, what does it do in the body, and why is it crucial for dancers/movers to know?) and thorough breakdown of the anatomy trains (myofascial meridians of the body) as mapped by Tom Myers. Go beyond just learning origin and insertion points and function of individual muscles. That only gives a limited picture. This course brings you a more accurate and comprehensive exploration of the human body in motion, through the integrated, whole body patterning of the myofascial system.
Each class video is broken down into 3 segments: Anatomy lecture (with visual handout link), then the direct application into your moving body through Yoga asana and then in part 3, direct application to belly dance movement vocabulary. In this way, you will learn a deeply embodied & practical approach to understanding your own body in motion, and tools to improve your self care. *All dance/yoga levels welcome.
**Course companion for Dance Therapeutics L1, and required curriculum for certification trainees.
