Professional Courses and Workshops

Kathryn is a certified teacher for Anatomy Trains and art of motion. She offers professional continuing education workshops in integral anatomy and fascia focused movement. 

Kathryn Martin has always been interested in structure, mechanics, and the interaction of our humanity, space, and function. These interests inspired her study of Engineering and English Literature, but it wasn’t until she began studying human movement that these dual interests came together. Integral movement and anatomy with a fascial focus united her interests in structure, function, and the human condition. Kathryn is inspired daily by the empowering capacity of mindful movement practices to support function, comfort, health, trust, and strength in one’s entire being.  She aims to motivate and empower others by exciting their curiosity and joy in their own bodies and support other teachers to do the same.

Slings Essentials

Slings Essentials is a rich course for movement and bodywork professionals who want to understand fascia in motion comprehensively. The course days revolve all around fascia, its properties, its role in movement and how to train fascia consciously with a diverse and body-minded strategy.

The course begins with the functional definition of fascia, 4 movement relevant differentiations within the fascial system and the 6 guiding principles of the Slings Myofascial Training education.

12 science-informed fascial qualities form the main part of the education. Metaphorically speaking, they are the defined, yet interconnected elements that create the tensegral structure of Slings Essentials. Derived from the fascial qualities are 12 myofascial training techniques and 12 overarching training aims, which are also covered in the course.
