Anatomy & Physiology for Movement Therapists
Relational anatomy & applied physiology - simplified.
Starts December 14, 2020
This could be the missing link in your practice.
For movement therapists who are already practicing, this course will help you see the connections between the different parts of the body rather than seeing the body as distinct parts.
Once you can see how everything is connected you can better decipher where problems are arising from by tracing client concerns. Instead of treating symptoms you will better be able to peel back the layers of your clients' pain/problems and get to the source.
For movement therapists just starting out in practice, this course will give you the background to dive deeper into the field of anatomy and physiology, giving you the confidence to put yourself out there as therapists and start building your business.
Bones, joints & muscles ...
The concepts you would expect in any anatomy and physiology course are highlighted with fun workbooks

Need anatomy and physiology as a prerequisite for another course or certification?
We've got it all here.
Here's a high level outline of the course
The course is 90% pre-recorded and divided into four modules. You'll get videos, workbooks and quizzes for each module and you'll go through the information at your own pace.
Module 1: Introduction & Laying the Ground Work
Module 2: Connective Tissue
Module 3: Relational Anatomy, Myofascia & Tensegrity
Module 4: Regulation of the Body & Mind
Early bird bonus: Get access to Module 1 right away and join us for an introductory Meet Up on December 7.
Each module will also have a Facebook Live (20-30 minutes) inside our Facebook group. Here we'll be more informal, but you'll have a great opportunity to ask questions live. The recordings will be posted in the group.
The Facebook group will also serve as a place where people can post questions either to me or the group. Below is the schedule of the meetups and Facebook lives. All Meetups and Facebook Lives will be on Wednesdays at 1 pm EST.
Appreciate your body in a whole new way!
Enjoy learning from slide decks, videos, workbooks and biweekly Meet Ups scheduled throughout the course.
Meet Ups will be held every second week in alternate formats i.e. Zoom one time and Facebook live the next.
Once a month join us for 75 minute Meet Up on Zoom and also once a month connect with us Facebook Live. The Zoom Meet Up will be a guided discussion highlighting various topics throughout the course with lots of time to ask questions. If you can't make it to the Zoom Meet Ups the recordings will be posted for you in your online course library.
"Teaching anatomy and physiology to movement therapists both already established and those starting out is my passion. I enjoy teaching adults imensely and have studied the most effective ways of teaching adults in an engaging manner. I have been using this knowledge in my own practice for years and can't wait to share this information with other therapists so more people can benefit from well educated therapists."

I feel so much more confident in my anatomical cueing after learning from Simone. As a movement teacher I think there is a huge need for instructors to feel more confident in their anatomy knowledge. I can't express enough how great Simone is at guiding this part of the learning journey."
