Babyfit, non-profit organization focused on the education of developmental movement, is offering a Body-Mind Centering® course: The Muscular System
The muscles establish a tensile three-dimensional grid for the balanced support and movement of the skeletal structure by providing the elastic forces that move the bones through space. They provide the dynamic contents of the outer envelope of flesh encompassing the skeletal structure. Through this system we embody our vitality, express our power, and engage in the dialogue of resistance and resolution.
This course includes:
- Innovative muscle principles (proximal and distal initiation, muscle coupling and currenting, A and B muscles, four stages of a muscle action, eight functions of a muscle).
- Embodying muscles and initiating movement at the molecular level (actin and myosin).
- The embodied functions of proprioceptors (muscle spindles and Golgi tendon organs).
- Analyzing the actions of individual muscles and of groups of muscles from the perspective of one’s position in relation to gravity.
- Interrelationships between muscles in different parts of the body and as they pass through different fascial planes.
- Techniques of muscle reeducation and training.
The Muscular System course in the approach of Body – Mind Centering® offers a unique chance to dive into an experiential exploring of your body, its functions and expressiveness.
It can be inspiring for everybody. For those of us working with movement, with infants, children or adults (physiotherapists, teachers of dance, yoga and tai-chi, dance therapists) it can offer new approaches to functional and healthy movement as well as new ways of repatterning and therapy.
This course does not require previous knowledge and is open for everyone. It can be taken individually or combined with other BMC® courses at any licensed BMC® program to become a Somatic Movement Educator (SME).
