CADAVER LAB HOURS (Mountain Time):
20 CEU hours of professional anatomy training recorded in hi-definition from a state-of-the-art cadaver lab! Uncover the magnificence of the human body through the replays of this 5 day live-streamed cadaver dissection course with world renowned anatomists Leslie Kaminoff (co-author of Yoga Anatomy) and Lauri Nemetz (dissector, movement therapist, yoga teacher and team member Fascial Plastination Project).
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore actual human forms, with the wisdom of professional guides, from the comfort of your own home, through the lens of your own profession and curiosity. Over 5 days we will journey into the majesty of holistic human anatomy using both embalmed and unfixed (un-embalmed) cadavers to uncover muscular and fascial connections, breath mechanics, organs and their attachments, glands, nerves, bones, joints and the brain. Each day consists of two 2-hour sessions of recorded content, with a morning session direct from the lab, and an evening of deeply integrated education featuring more lab footage blended with somatic explorations, and live Q&A.
The theory and practice of yoga and other forms of movement will be the key lens that will inform our explorations. Massage therapists, acupuncturists and other holistically oriented medical professionals will also find this integral view of the body transformative and enlightening. A certificate of completion for 20 online contact hours of CEU credits will be issued upon request to all participants who complete the training. These hours have been approved by both the International Association of Yoga Therapists and the Yoga Alliance.
