Read on as Tom answers a student’s question after viewing Tom’s webinar on fascia from YogaUOnline. Dear Tom, I recently viewed your work on Yoga U and I am having difficulty reconciling your work with that of my curriculum in physical therapy. I understand your concept of fascia as a system, with which I agree,… Read more
Continuing our series on key anatomy pictures, these two specimens from BodyWorlds – KorperWelten – so epitomize the difference in approach between Newtonian and Einsteinium biomechanics. The left hand picture shows the individual muscles, detached at the proximal end and reflected before being plastinated. But the message is unmistakable: If we understood the actions of… Read more
We’re happy to welcome back our Anatomy Trains teacher Lauri Nemetz as a guest blogger! Lauri recounts her experience presenting at this year’s Experimental Biology conference. I’m back on the east coast re-settling from the Experimental Biology conference, held this year in sunny San Diego, April 2nd-5th. I am still taking in all of the… Read more
My favorite anatomy pictures series #1: Adductor Magnus (to see a fascial release technique for this complex muscle, click here) Anatomy nerds like me revel in old anatomy books that give you perspective not provided by most modern texts, which have seemingly settled on a particular 2-D point-de-vu about muscle function. This more 3-D one from… Read more
Learn how the fascia responds to stretch, exercise, and movement. This webinar series brings together Tom Myers’ 40 years experience in fascial therapy with the latest research on tissue elasticity, responses to loading, injury, and the internal body sens.
Myofascial Meridians A revolution in Soft-Tissue Patterning
Anatomy Trains® maps the ‘anatomy of connection’ – the whole-body fascial and myofascial linkages. Anatomy Trains links the individual muscles into functional complexes, each with a specific anatomy and ‘meaning’. Anatomy Trains leads to new holistic strategies for health professionals, movement teachers, and athletes to resolve complex postural and movement patterns.
Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians gives you a new understanding of whole-body patterning in posture and function – the interplay of movement and stability. Understanding the ‘Superficial Back Line’ as a whole gives insights into hamstring problems that you cannot get from considering the hamstrings alone. The ‘Spiral Line’ shows how to resolve rotational compensations in a way that no analysis of any single muscle can give.
