What moves us? Three words that have been on my mind for a number of years says Karin Gurtner, creator of the Slings courses. Rather than looking for exclusive answers, I let them inspire me to create a movement concept that values science, functional anatomy, humanness and the imponderable alike. I called it Slings because of the myofascial slings that modulate motion and the somato-psycho-emotional-social slings that motivate our movements.
Essentially Anatomy Trains in Motion is an anatomy course in which you will increase your depth of knowledge and gain a new perspective of Thomas W. Myers’ Anatomy Trains concept in relation to body-minded movement. The course is filled with functional anatomy, movement relevant information and practical applications that not only sound good on paper, but also work well in real life. Anatomy Trains in Motion lies the foundation for the Slings Myofascial Training education.
At the heart of the course are the myofascial meridians. Understanding the lines’ integral anatomy, workings, sensory qualities and relationships are invaluable for body reading, clear movement intention, lesson planning and teaching. Yes, myofascial meridians are so much more than ‘lines’ that can be ‘superimposed’ onto exercises!
