In this livestream we will be looking at the beautiful fascial origami that connects the diaphragms of the body, from the tentorium and floor of the mouth to the respiratory and pelvic diaphragm. This livestream dissection will feature multiple camera views to capture the brilliant work of  master dissector Todd Garcia, with presentation and commentary  from Julie Hammond Director of Anatomy Trains Australia & NZ and co-founder of Balancing the Diaphragms.

Module 1: September 9th, 10 AM -12 PM  EDT

The anatomy and functional connections between the tentorium, floor of the mouth and supra pleural membrane.

In this module we will discuss how the upper 3 diaphragms of the body interact fascially and functionally. Key takeaways will include the anatomy of the vocal folds and tongue and how these structures are functionally connected to the pelvic diaphragm.

  • Epicranial fascia
  • Falx cerebri
  • Tentorium cerebelli
  • Dura mater at internal cranial base
  • Soft palate of the mouth
  • Mylohyoid muscle
  • Tongue
  • Epiglottis
  • Vocal folds (cords) true & false
  • Deep cervical fascia
  • Cervical parietal pleura (cupula or dome)

Module 2: September 10th, 10AM -12PM EDT

The anatomy and functional connection between the pelvis and respiratory diaphragm

In this module we will explore the pelvic and respiratory diaphragm and discuss the functional connections. How changes in one of these diaphragms will affect the other. Key takeaways from this module will be a deeper understanding of the communication between these two diaphragms and how this can inform your clinical practice.

  • Respiratory diaphragm to fibrous pericardium
  • Respiratory diaphragm to costal arch
  • Respiratory diaphragm to ventral lumbar spine, 12th rib, Psoas major, psoas minor, and Quadratus lumborum muscles.
  • Endopelvic fascia
  • Pelvic diaphragm to rectum, and urinary bladder
  • Pelvic diaphragm to uterus if present

This course will be provided over Zoom webinar with multiple camera views, live chat and Q&A.

Recordings will be provided via password protected streaming access for 10 days.

This special dissection livestream format allows us to go more deeply into the relationships and applications to multiple manual and movement modalities.

Note: To ensure a high quality student experience, registration for this course will close on Friday, September 8th at 8PM EDT. Zoom links will be sent out promptly after registration closes.
