Comprehensive Anatomy Course w/Sam Booker

12 Week Course beginning in the fall : Dates TBA

Calling all potential Pilates, Yoga and movement teachers! If you don’t have any prior anatomy background and are thinking of going into a teacher training program, this course is for you!

This 30 hour comprehensive anatomy course is for the complete beginner anatomist and those feeling the need to hone their prior knowledge; it is equivalent to the 100 level musculoskeletal anatomy course Samantha teaches at Ryerson University. Best thought of as the study of anatomy through a kinesiological lens; the course will enable students to identify, locate and describe the actions of the major muscles and bones of the musculoskeletal system; they will also develop an understanding of how these structures work together to produce movement. Understanding concepts such as stability and mobility, muscle synergy, muscle contraction, movement analysis, and exertion and recuperation will facilitate the students’ ability to make decisions about class sequencing, how best to prevent injury based on individual needs, as well as when to seek/refer out for professional care. As students become more adept at using anatomical language they will be able to communicate clearly with other health professionals when necessary.
