D-ST 2501 - Experiential Anatomy
In this living anatomy course, students will learn to integrate information about body structure and function through active individual/partner or group experiences. We will study, sense, feel, observe and articulate ourselves and what we are made of to feel more, move well and thrive. The course provides a laboratory for students, where the experiential study of anatomy integrates and empowers the individual moving in a world, and moves away from traditional approaches that teach anatomy by literally “cutting up” the body. The goal of the course is for participants to be sensate and sensitively observant, to decrease injury, stress and tension patterns, and, as high-level performers, allow full access to the body’s expressive potential. The course will touch on developmental movement patterns and their importance in finding ease, efficiency and dynamic range in our movement as well as expose students to important new research on the fascial “net”.
