Learning anatomy builds one's body awareness, deepens one's understanding of how his/her body operates and prevents injury. This anatomy weekend includes five components including the lower extremity, pelvic girdle & hip, spine, thoracic cage & breathing and upper extremity. Each session includes a lecture w/ a movement and palpation lab to follow.
