Anatomy of Movement- 40 years of publishing, education and research
EXPERIENTIAL and SENSORIAL
The Anatomy for Movement methodology is characterized by the sensory awareness of the information that passes through the body in movement. The exercises that we practice are didactic, the fact of feeling the anatomy 'from the inside' can reinforce and contribute a unique quality to the knowledge of the anatomy observed in a visual way. Our courses are always 50% practical and 50% multi-sensorial, based on original exercises created by Blandine Calais-Germain and her team. Our Montessori-inspired methodology is structured through an apprenticeship that associates very different languages and cognitive registers such as illustration, coloring, molding, work in pairs and groups.
COMPREHENSIVE and BASED ON RESEARCH
One of the fundamental riches of Anatomy of Movement is its transdisciplinarity; the courses are open to all levels of practitioners, of any discipline that includes the movement of the body in its fundamental characteristics. This has allowed to build a heritage of ideas based on 40 years of exchange, evaluations and advice from Physiotherapists, Doulas, fitness monitors, Pilates and Yoga teachers, Feldenkrais practitioners, singers, dancers, actors , musicians ... Some come to learn and deepen their knowledge of anatomy, others to assimilate the original exercises created by the AoM team, and offer them as an alternative to their patients or students. Some of the team's teachers are currently developing research in collaboration with Universities and other institutions to provide the scientific and academic support to the clinical results observed for many years.
ROOTED IN PRACTICE and CONTINUOUSLY EVOLVING
Since the creation of the school, Blandine Calais-Germain has focused on developing the best pedagogy and the most effective language to integrate the unique qualities of movement practice to the knowledge of anatomy. Blandine began by practicing the movement that comes from the tradition of dance, but very soon other people joined her and inspired her to expand the research to other movement techniques. The methodology of Anatomy for the Movement has grown a lot thanks to the contribution of all the people who have participated in the courses, the teachers who hold classes of the method, and the research of our teacher trainers who each year deepen their research of specialized topics in complementary fields of knowledge. This allows the contents of our school courses to evolve and remain always fresh, original, effective, in order to respond to the specific demand of an audience that changes from generation to generation.
