Learning anatomy is a life-long process. FAMI begins the journey with a hands-on exploration of the human form. Students learn the language of the body from anatomists, study 3-D specimens in Gross Anatomy labs, and hear first-hand how physicians and physical therapists treat the pathologies that commonly plague our musculoskeletal system.

FAMI – Level Two (FL2) takes the knowledge gleaned in the Gross Lab to the studio with immersive, integrative courses on injury programming and care. Each course focuses on a specific body region and includes the following topics each day.

This year, we are building on the content covered in our last FAMI Fridays, offering a special topics course on the Anatomy of Aging! It will offer movement professionals an in-depth exploration into clinical conditions affecting older client populations, as well as the rehab programming to address them:

Foundation Lecture

Led by a FAMI anatomist, these lectures review fundamentals of the region in focus and set the stage for the practical application of anatomy to movement. This year, review the changing anatomy of the aging human body with FAMI co-founder Jeffrey Laitman, PhD.

Biomechanics, Posture, and Palpation Lab

These sessions take participants through an in-depth exploration of the body region in focus. Participants explore biomechanics, healthy and unhealthy posture, and palpation of the region’s important landmarks. Learn postural and movement assessments, rehab principles, and contraindications for the Anatomy of Aging with Jinny McGivern, PT.

Preventative Programming

Led by a FAMI movement professional, this session explores programming for injury prevention, teaching participants specific exercises and progressions that encourage healthy biomechanics and posture of the body region in focus for all levels of clients. For the Anatomy of Aging, master modified exercise progressions to safely and effectively work with older client populations (exercises are multi-modal with a focus on Pilates mat work, small props, and equipment choreography) with Matt McCulloch.

Clinical Perspective Lecture

These 90-minute sessions, taught by FAMI physicians, hone in on common injuries of the body region in focus, exploring pathology, treatment, and specific clinical cases. They provide the framework for understanding the exercise principles discussed during the Rehab Perspective lectures and Injury Programming sessions that follow. This year, examine clinical aspects of aging with geriatrician Helen Fernandez, MD and geriatric psychiatrist Leila Laitman, MD.

Rehab Perspective & Injury Programming

Co-taught by a FAMI PT and movement professional, these sessions provide an in-depth analysis of the rehabilitative management of specific injuries as well as choreography and progressions for injury maintenance and recovery. These sessions exemplify the dialogue between the medical and movement worlds that FAMI seeks to inspire. For our special topics course, explore biomechanics of the aging body with Jinny McGivern, PT, DPT, CFMT + Kinected co-founder Matt McCulloch. 

Balanced Body® Anatomy in Three Dimensions™

NEW to FAMI – Level Two (not a part of the Anatomy of Aging special topics course).  Nora St. John (Education Director for Balanced Body) will guide you through a hands-on build of the spine, pelvic floor, abdominals and deep hip rotators using molding clay and skeletal models. Solidify your 3D understanding of the back body and set the stage for the in-depth exploration of biomechanics and programming to follow on Saturday and Sunday.
