Inside The Core – A journey beneath the skin

Inside the core offers you the fascinating opportunity to take a journey beneath the skin and view the anatomy of the human body close up.

This unique course, led by a Professor of Pathology, will broaden your appreciation of human movement and function and bring to life anatomy diagrams and books in a way simply not possible elsewhere.

Inside the Core is a three-hour dissection of a human cadaver, concentrating on the ‘core’ of the body. Principally you will get to view, touch, and ask questions about key abdominal and pelvic musculature such as the following:

Transversus Abdominis - see how small and thin this muscle actually is and how it could never be solely responsible for spinal stability

External and Internal Obliques – View the way these muscles criss-cross the abdomen providing structural cross-bridging and reinforcement to the torso.

Psoas – See this powerful muscle of the hip in close up and realise why it is so critical in spinal function.

Thoracolumbar Fascia – Feel first hand how tough connective tissue can be and why fascia is so key to understanding core stability.

This course will lift your appreciation of true core stability to a new level and will change the way you think about abdominal and core training. It is ideal for anyone who operates in improving or treating functional performance, whether in the clinical environment or the fitness industry. Previous attendees have been physiotherapists, personal trainers, chiropractors, pilates teachers, osteopaths, yoga teachers, sports masseuses, and bodywork therapists.

Course is 3 hours long and at a SW London hospital easily accessed by public transport.
