There are many misconceptions about the myofascial system, and the science is changing rapidly. In this episode of The ABMP Podcast, Kristin and Darren speak with Lauri Nemetz about her book, The Myofascial System in Form and Movement. Lauri speaks about how her background in art history, dance and movement therapy, and anatomical dissection helped weave together the many facets of the evolving area of myofascial research.
Lauri is an adjunct professor at Pace (NY) University, Visiting Associate Professor, Deptartment of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, a licensed creative arts therapist, a member of the American Association for Anatomy, a board-certified member of the Academy of Dance/Movement Therapists, a Yoga Alliance yoga teacher and education provider at the 500-hour level, a Stott Pilates instructor, a certified yoga therapist (IAYT), and a provider and former faculty member for Anatomy Trains and Anatomy Trains Dissections.
She co-leads knmlabs.com and guests internationally for dissection projects, including the Fascia Net Plastination Project. She is the author of The Myofascial System in Form and Movement (Handspring Publishing, 2022), a contributor to The Anatomy of Yoga Coloring Book (North Atlantic Books, 2022), and the author of numerous articles. She has presented internationally, including at Harvard Medical, Oxford University, and at conferences for the American Association for Anatomy. More information available on wellnessbridge.com.

Anatomy Trains is a global leader in online anatomy education and also provides in-classroom certification programs for structural integration in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe, Japan, and China, as well as fresh-tissue cadaver dissection labs and weekend courses. The work of Anatomy Trains originated with founder Tom Myers, who mapped the human body into 13 myofascial meridians in his original book, currently in its fourth edition and translated into 12 languages. The principles of Anatomy Trains are used by osteopaths, physical therapists, bodyworkers, massage therapists, personal trainers, yoga, Pilates, Gyrotonics, and other body-minded manual therapists and movement professionals. Anatomy Trains inspires these practitioners to work with holistic anatomy in treating system-wide patterns to provide improved client outcomes in terms of structure and function.
