Anatomy for Life


This course comes with a comprehensive manual with Social Studies and Science exercises as well as detailed PhysEd exercises, videos and on-line support material. 


The material focuses on: 

  • awareness of posture in general (Social Studies), personally (Science), and the long-term effects of lifestyle choices on the body as we age.

  • understanding how movement challenges the stability and health of the human physical structure (Science ); 

  • helping students understand what optimal postural alignment actually feels like (Physical Education).


Included are:  

  • Observation and Research Exercises (Science and Social Studies).

  • Stabilization Exercises and Cues to help your students maintain good alignment, build balanced muscles throughout the body during their activities (science and PhysEd). 

  • Coordinated Breathing Techniques that help to maintain support, strength and stamina when in motion (Physical Education).


Key words and phrases such as the ones below will be used : 

Body Awareness; Optimum Alignment; Postural Dysfunction; Muscle Memory; The Gravity Line/Axis; Range of Motion; Core Conditioning & Breathing; Balanced Muscles = Healthy Joints; Stability vs Mobility


With this program your students will :

  • enhance their knowledge of the human anatomy as it applies to functional movement. 

  • learn to observe and identify adaptive posture already starting to form in their daily lives and that of their classmates using the interactive exercises.

  • learn useful exercises and cues for physical stability and fitness

  • be asked to envision hypothetical life choices and how their bodies will age due to those choices. 


These skills will help students become responsible for their physical well-being throughout their lives and avoid unnecessary wear and tear of their bodies, helping to prevent injury and chronic pain.


Learning Outcomes


After studying these courses and material, and participating in classes of practical exercises you will:


  • be familiar with and able to demostrate the principles of optimum physical alignment in neutral and active positions.

  • be familiar with and able to demonstrate principles of internal and external stability in the human frame both static and active. 

  • be able to teach your students how their knowledge of basic anatomy relates to healthy functional movement, as well as sports related activities.

  • have the skills to teach your students how strengthening their bodies as they maintain optimal alignment during their activities enhances the activity and protects their bodies.

  • have a repertoire of warm up and stability exercises that can be used to compliment your current programming

  • create awareness of how lifestyle choices will affect the long-term health of the body.
