Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics – A Vital Comprehensive Understanding


As a movement professional, it is absolutely vital that you have a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy and biomechanics and of the human body. However, just knowing the names of muscles and where they are is not sufficient if you teach movement and exercise.

You need a deeper understanding of how the muscles relate to one another and how they react on an individual. Each client can be viewed as a unique puzzle, and through a comprehensive understanding of the anatomy, all the parts of their puzzle will fit together perfectly. You are about to embark on a journey of anatomical discovery, which will enable you to teach with confidence. We are going to jump right back to the basics and start unfolding the amazing world of the human body in movement.


This course will teach you, the professional, about the Musculoskeletal system and how this system responds when moving.

You will learn:

  • all the necessary anatomical terminology that will help you understand literature and referral letters from health care professionals
  • how to analyse movement on an anatomical level
  • how to teach classes that embrace a better understanding of your client’s bodies as they move
  • compensations due to muscular restrictions
  • the muscles names and the movements that they produce as well as their antagonists
  • how the agonists and antagonists relate to one another and how their response can be different for different individuals
  • how to apply your knowledge to modify exercises for a more client specific approach
  • how anatomy and biomechanical knowledge will change your entire perspective on teaching movement with purpose
