Anatomy Trains 2-Day Dissection Livestream Specialty Class – The Deep Front Line and the Central Nervous System – live online with Tom Myers and Todd Garcia!

We’re excited to announce a new 2-day advanced educational dissection livestream experience. For the first time in more than a year, Tom Myers and Todd Garcia will be working together in the Laboratories of Anatomical Enlightenment in Boulder! In four two-hour online sessions, Tom and Todd will you guide you first through the anatomy and fascial connections in the ventral cavity — what Tom calls the Deep Front Line — then from the bottom of the skull, around the organs, and down into the leg. The second session will take us into the brain, spinal cord, and fascial membranes that surround the central nervous system in the dorsal cavity. This special dissection livestream format allows us to go more deeply into the relationships and applications to multiple manual and movement modalities, from athletic training to trauma resolution to osteopathy.

This special dissection livestream format allows us to explore more deeply subjects in areas of interest. This course is open to all, but due to its advanced nature, some prior experience with dissection, especially our 4-day dissection livestream, is recommended.
