This is worth putting down the book or article you are currently reading: the latest edition of the Anatomy Trains Australia & NZ e-magazine.
What a collection of great articles, written by accomplished professionals. Each one is a gem.
And I am so delighted to see art of motion Academy educator Heidi Savage's essay about "Living a resource-oriented life, on and off the mat”: highly recommended!
The 9th edition of the Anatomy Trains Australia EMAG is here! The theme for this magazine is "How We Move" and authors were given one brief; to write an article on how we move from their perspective. What is important in movement and why. The magazine features articles by Thomas Myers, Karin Gurtner, Ap Lindberg, Woiciech Cackowski and Chris Clayton and an interview with Jill Miller. Enjoy the read!
