Fascial Release for Structural Balance is completely redesigned program that includes a series of short intensives to give you a solid, reliable, and holistic way of working.

Be an efficient and effective integrative bodywork therapist.


  • Learn Functional, Fascial and Structural Approaches in one program
  • Bust the myths of standard ‘origin-insertion-action’ anatomy
  • Understand how the body really moves, handles forces, & maintains balance

Since 2001, the Anatomy Trains model has been a major contributor to the growing interest in connected anatomy, integrated movement, and creating holistic strategies for the ‘neuromyofascial web’. These days, many modalities are touting that they are ‘fascial’ but in this course you will learn from our decades of experience the relevance of fascial properties to how the body really moves.

Learn how the body uses fascial elasticity to minimize energy use. Break the myths of concentric / eccentric / isometric muscle contraction. Use fascia’s plasticity to make deep and lasting changes in posture. Come away with a solid appreciation of the wonders of the how we grow and move.

We are grounded in the latest research and the new biomechanics – not levers and vectors but readily usable whole-body strategies that will enable you to see the true source of problems, and then resolve them for good.

This series of workshops will take you to a new level in therapy by combining movement and specific manual techniques for the most efficient and long-lasting results, using the latest research on the interaction between skeleton, myofascia, joints, and fascial proprioceptors.

See how inefficient mechanics in one spot can lead to overuse problems (and pain) somewhere quite distant from the original issue – and then use both movement and manual techniques to make quick, effective and lasting improvements.

Presented in a fun, clear, visually rich and practical manner, these workshops build on each other to give you a full body understanding and approach that can be applied to athletes, chronic pain problems, and any client who wants to move, stand, and feel better.

Learn this reliable and research-based approach and start making immediate and lasting changes for your clients.

All Anatomy Trains courses are supported by complete electronic handouts incorporating video as a reference for tests and techniques, bibliographies, slide shows, and supplementary material.

Anatomy Trains in Structure & Function

Duration: 4 days

The first workshop to combine Anatomy Trains theory alongside structural and functional anatomy and analysis. In this exciting new, comprehensive 28-hour format, you will learn about myofascial tissue and see the fascial tissues in context and how they are interdependent with the other body systems. This exciting and fun workshop is delivered with your practice in mind – you will have usable skills by the end of the four days. Note: This workshop is the pre-requisite for the ATSI (formerly KMI) Professional Certification Training.

Note: This course is a pre-requisite for the rest of the FRSB series and must be completed first.

The Fascial Release for Structural Balance (FRSB) Series

These regional intensives combine global postural assessment with movement and manual techniques for efficient and long-lasting results.  Each of the 6 FRSB 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 therapist, the FRSB workshops are most easily absorbed in the order outlined below but you can do them in any order as time permits.
