Anatomy of Movement®
Experience Anatomy & Well-being with
the Leading Methodology Available Today
Wellco is proud to be the first official international research hub for the Anatomy of Movement methodology created by Blandine Calais-Germain in 1980. Senior instructors of the Wellco and Anatomy of Movement network propose regular courses and thematic workshops on well-being and anatomy to provide professionals and enthusiasts from all backgrounds (Yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais, Dance, Personal Trainers, Actors, Musicians, Physiotherapists, Doulas,...) with an innovative approach to understand the anatomy of the human body as a living entity, consisting of interacting dynamic systems that can be studied from the outside but also directly experienced through movement and action.
Until the publication of the book Anatomy of Movement in 1980, anatomy thus far had almost exclusively been conceptualised and presented using language developed for the medical profession, which studies the human organism mostly through segmented dead bodies. Blandine Calais-Germain created a completely different approach and presented an easy-to-access methodology to learn about the body as a whole organism, and movement as expression of good health. After her first book was published, the methodology quickly rose to fame; the book has now been translated in 20 languages, and sold millions of copies. It has served as the reference manual for yoga and Pilates teachers, dancers and other movement professionals all over the world. Since then, extensive and experientially focussed courses have been developed, and a global network of certified Anatomy of Movement® (AoM) teachers emerged.
At Wellco, we are proud to serve as the first international center where the teachings of AoM can be experienced outside of France to reach a much broader audience. Our senior AoM instructors have trained teachers from all corners of the world, and we are thrilled to share our updated list and schedule of courses.
