Anatomy in Three Dimensions
Build muscles in clay on a specially designed skeleton and imprint the body’s design deeply into your mind. Anatomy in Three Dimensions™ is a compelling, effective, engaging and fun way to learn the basics of musculoskeletal anatomy. By building the muscles with your own hands you will develop a deep understanding of the structure and function of the human body.
Learn the structure and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, as well as the origin, insertion and action of the muscles. This course pairs muscle function with specific exercises in order to reinforce and apply the anatomical information to movement. Muscles and joints from the knees through the shoulders are covered.
The AI3D 16-hour, two-day comprehensive course builds the pelvis, legs, abdominals, spine, back and shoulder girdle. We start with building the deep muscles and work out toward the superficial musculature. Movement-based practical lectures, interwoven into the build process, help bring the anatomy to life.
Balanced Body recommends AI3D to fulfill your Pilates anatomy pre-requisite. This method of learning anatomy is fundamentally rich in meaning, and provides an ability to understand and see the body in a unique manner. Because you build the model, it is also a personal and intimate learning opportunity.
AI3D is great for beginners as well as anatomy nerds! Pilates and yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, personal trainers, athletic trainers, physical therapists, osteopaths, etc., are welcome.
