Movement Anatomy Course
This new 3-day course developed by Dr Mark Vella ND, offers a shorter and more practical introduction to the anatomy and physiology of movement. Suitable for movement or Therapy Professionals, e.g. Pilates instructors, Ballet Teachers, Sport Coaches, etc. this practically focused workshop centres on a case study based-model. This means that key exercises, each one focused on one of the 5 main sections of th body. i.e. Legs, Hips, abdominal, arms, shoulders, back, are chosen and analysed whilst simultaneously learning about joints, tissues, neural, skeletal and muscular systems and other key aspects of human movement anatomy and physiology.
As an attendee you can expect to engage in a highly visual and practical approach using group work, workbooks and a wetlab mini workshop. (We’re waiting to hear from the University of Pretoria if attendees on this course can witness part of a cadaver dissection)
Exercise no doubt has an art. And as a trainer, coach and teacher you have no doubt become a master of your craft.
This course deepens your knowledge and understanding of the anatomy and physiology underlying the movements you prescribe and provides you with a greater rationale and ability to adapt and moderate exercise. In so doing you can better apply your programming to suit your intended outcomes and goals for your client rather than solely relying on prescriptive routines. Practical, applicable, relevant and user-friendly, this course is unique in South Africa.
