I've seen this talk 4 times in person... Watching it here, again, I am reminded just how much it, as well as your dissection courses have influenced my teaching (not to mention my life). Gil, thank you for sharing your 20 years of experience exploring the human form in a way that fosters deep appreciation for all that we do as Pilates instructors, as well who we are as people.
Fabulous!! Awesome!! Thank you Kristi for having this available on PA for us to watch and learn.
I want to share a dream that I had the evening after I watched the deep fascia chapter...I was at the ocean watching these heads pop out of the water and at first they looked like seals, but once they came on land, they turned into a human-like form (sort of like a "gumby" shape) where it was one blended form with head blending into the arms, then the body and legs. When Gil moved the leg and seeing how every part moves (not just a muscle) that just totally stuck with me! The body is truly amazing! Thanks again!!
Patricia ~ Thank you for your forum post. We don't have a specific workshop that focuses on general anatomy, but we do have workshops that focus on specific parts of the body (e.g. hips, back, etc.). We are planning our workshops for next year, and hopefully we will be able to add a workshop on general anatomy.
Hi Misty and Laura, this material is designed to give meaningful context to the very abstract concepts of "body parts" and "muscle origins." Taking this workshop will give you a kind of essential, whole body perspective grounded in images from the dissection of actual human bodies which will render the more abstract conceptualizations that you find in books much more understandable and meaningful. Warmly, Gil :)
