Course Description:
Please join us for this unique Dissection Livestream event, Abdomen and Viscera with Anatomy Trains author Tom Myers, and Master Dissector Todd Garcia.Explore your most ancient systems – the organs of the ventral cavity – in our latest dissection livestream. For the bodyworker or movement teacher, the organs are a kind of ‘black box’ below the abdominal muscles and above the pelvic floor. But those organs have shape, weight, attachments, adhesions, and variability that all bear on how they can move.Our dissections are done live, on donors who have not been ‘fixed’ with chemicals. Therefore the colors and movement of the organs we will see on this voyage of discovery are as natural and lifelike as possible.We will cover anatomical details of the digestive, renal, and reproductive organs. We will also be referring to embryological development of the organs, and their inherent cellular motility as well as breath-driven mobilityThis 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 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.
