19 Oct Core Muscle Anatomy with Carrie McCulloch, MD
Read on for our Q&A with FAMI and kinected co-founder, Carrie McCulloch on why you should check out the upcoming CMA course in Cold Spring, NY 11/4-5 & 11/18-19.
Why do you think anatomy is important to the education of movement professionals?
Learning the body from the inside out lends a critical edge to any teacher. Understanding the layers of the body–from muscles and bones to organs and physiologic systems–irrevocably changes a teacher’s view of the human form. A strong foundation in anatomy allows a teacher to effiiently assess a client’s posture and program a relevant session; it empowers a teacher to not only think critically and scientifically, but also take liberties when needed. I like to think of anatomy as the science upon which the art of movement can do its work.
How is the kinected Core Muscle Anatomy different from other anatomy workshops?
Learning anatomy can be daunting—and, let’s face it, even boring—but it doesn’t have to be! Amongst the many lessons I learned in medical school was how to survive in a huge sea of information, facts, and random things to memorize. I honed my approach to studying to make it fun, relevant, and efficient. Our Core Muscle Anatomy program is based on that approach. We distill volumes of anatomy information into two applicable and digestible weekends for movement professionals. CMA is what you need to know to begin a lifelong love and journey of studying the human body.
