Anatomy in Three Dimensions

Anatomy in Three Dimensions Training Program Overview

Balanced Body Anatomy in Three Dimensions Instructor Training at Pure Pilates

Anatomy in Three Dimensions™: A unique exploration into the anatomy of the human body

Build muscles in clay on a specially designed skeleton and imprint the body’s design deeply into your mind. Anatomy in Three Dimensions™ is a compelling/effective, engaging and fun way to learn the basics of musculoskeletal anatomy. By building the muscles with your own hands you will develop a deep understanding of the structure and function of the human body.

Learn the structure and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, as well as the origin, insertion and action of the muscles. This course pairs muscle function with specific exercises in order to reinforce and apply the anatomical information to movement. Muscles and joints from the knees through the shoulders are covered.

The AI3D 16-hour, three-day comprehensive course builds the pelvis, legs, abdominals, spine, back and shoulder girdle. We start with building the deep muscles and work out toward the superficial musculature. Movement-based practical lectures, interwoven into the build process, help bring the anatomy to life.

Who Should Attend

AI3D is great for beginners as well as anatomy nerds! Pilates and yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, personal trainers, athletic trainers, physical therapists, osteopaths, etc., are welcome.

Join us for the full, 16-hour course or for smaller, more specific workshops. Anyone who works with the body will gain a deeper understanding of how the muscles and bones affect movement.

Balanced Body recommends AI3D to fulfill your Pilates anatomy prerequisite. This method of learning anatomy is fundamentally rich in meaning, and provides an ability to understand and see the body in a unique manner. Because you build the model, it is also a personal and intimate learning opportunity.

Pure Pilates offers early bird pricing for those who register for Anatomy in 3D more than 10 days in advance of the first date of the module.

Setting up an On-Site Training

Want to hold an AI3D™ course at your Studio or Fitness Center?

While most students find the courses they need at a Balanced Body Authorized Training Center, there may be times when hosting a course at your facility is desirable. Reasons for sponsoring a course can include:

  • The need to train your staff quickly.
  • The course is part of an equipment/education package.
  • More convenient location.
  • An authorized training center is not the right “fit” for your staff.

Balanced Body’s on-site AI3D training makes it easy to bring education to your facility. We will work with you to select a date and schedule an instructor. We may require that the course be offered as “closed.” In this case, the course will only be available to you and your instructors.

Logistics for setting up a training at your facility:

  • Student-to-teacher ratio recommendations: six to 12 students per instructor.
  • Studio provides:
    • Tables, one per 2-3 students. (Six-foot tables work well).
    • Chairs, one per student.
    • Wall for image projection.
  • Facility must receive a small pallet of materials before the workshop, and work with Balanced Body to prepare the items for pickup after the training.

Contact Pure Pilates if you are interested in a specialized four-hour training or bringing Anatomy in Three Dimensions to your studio.
