January of the new year kicks off with a three day weekend of anatomy lectures by yours truly for the Erica Bloom Comprehensive Pilates Certification. Friday evening January 3, and the afternoons of the 4th and 5th will be devoted to an anatomy intensive. On the syllabus are introduction to: anatomy and some kinesiology; tissues of the musculoskeletal system; an overview of the skeleton and musculature of the trunk, lower extremities, and shoulder girdle; as well as a foray into the mechanics of respiration. As usual I will draw on a live model, who will perform Pilates exercises. I hope the models are in good shape! I tend to make them repeat the exercises for a long time while we discuss different aspects of muscular contraction, joint movements, alignment, etc.

THE CENTER FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF THERAPEUTIC ARTS (CATA) - GRADUATE STUDIES PROGRAM
LMTs, check it out!
CATA (formerly Massage Space NYC) has put together a comprehensive Eastern and Western track studies program for New York state licensed massage therapists. The two tracks offer advanced hands-on and lecture programs for practitioners interested in honing their therapeutic talents through the application of new knowledge, skills, and understanding of therapeutic options in clinical practice. The program is a year long or one can take individual units. Classes start in January. I will be teaching (guess what?) Anatomy And Movement classes starting in March.
