A four-day holistic anatomy course taught by two Rosen teachers who are also physical therapists with decades of experience working with the body. Jane Pittsinger and Kate O'Shea bring a deep understanding of anatomy from a Rosen perspective. Focusing on the areas of the body that are most important to Rosen Method and the mind-body connection, this workshop is experiential and more than just memorizing names and places of muscles and bones.
