Please join us for this unique Dissection Livestream event, “Lumbopelvic Stability – Where Breathing Meets Walking, Balancing the Psoas and deep muscles of the pelvis” with Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers, and Master Dissector Todd Garcia.

Our livestream dissection will focus on the intricacies of lumbopelvic stability, the pelvic joints, ligaments and muscles, and pelvic floor structures with both a male and female donor for rich comparative anatomy.

This course will be provided over zoom webinar in 3 x 2 hour modules, with multiple camera views, live chat and Q&A. Recordings will be provided via password protected streaming access for 5 days. 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 course is open to all, but due to its advanced nature, some prior experience with dissection, especially our 4-day dissection livestream, is recommended.
