The Moving Fascia® Anatomy Diploma is a modular course designed to deepen your understanding of movement anatomy from a fascial perspective. Modules can be taken individually or together to complete the full diploma.
You can opt to attend in person (in Brighton, UK) or online, watching the livestream or catch up with high quality recordings in your own time.
This course is delivered in an interactive way, through lectures, practical application, hands on work and experiential movement.
Hello, I am Ana Barretxeguren, I am the creator of Moving Fascia®, a somatic movement method that has helped hundreds restore ease, minimise pain, and enhance fluid movement and breath.
I am a movement educator and myofascial release practitioner fascinated by the transformative quality of a somatic approach and its positive impact on health. My own experience of living with catamenial pneumothorax, a rare condition of repetitive lung collapses, has led me to a continuous investigation of fascia, focusing on the visceral space and its connections to breath and movement.
“I believe in an integral study of anatomy that can transform the way we experience our moving body, and evolve the way we witness movement it in others.”
This course is for you if you are looking to deepen your understanding of movement anatomy from an integral fascial perspective.

What is a hybrid format?
Our hybrid format means that the training is delivered in more than one way so you can choose how you would like to participate in each module with the option to attend in person or the live stream online. We build a comprehensive online platform with all content available on demand so you can also choose to watch later or if you did attend live you can revisit all the material again at your own pace.
How is this different from other anatomy courses?
You may have come across anatomy previously as a cold and dry subject, referring to the body as a third object and leaving a distinct gap between studying a series of isolated systems and your reality of teaching movement to others. The Moving Fascia® Embodied Anatomy diploma places emphasis on the importance of experiencing anatomy through the felt sense and exploring the fascial architecture through theory, embodiment, self-myofascial release and movement techniques.
How much of the course is movement based?
It is an anatomy course and it is mainly theory that is supported by and consolidated through embodiment. Approximately 25% of the course is purely movement. It is ideal for those wanting to learn fascial anatomy at an advanced level and gain the tools to apply their knowledge to their existing movement practice or bodywork.
If you prefer to learn primarily through movement then you might prefer our Moving Fascia® Teacher Training course which is mainly movement based. You can find it under 'Courses' on our top menu.
What do I need for the movement sessions?
You will need the Moving Fascia® SOFT balls for the experiential movement sessions.
We can make other suggestions for alternatives you can suggest for your clients to use, however, we require you have this ready before the course starts.
Can I join individual modules?
Yes! There is the option to attend single modules rather than enrolling on the whole course.
The Diploma is designed as a 6 part journey through the fascial body, following a model of cavities and limbs. Each module focuses on a specific area, always with an understanding of its relationship to the interconnected whole.
Each module stands alone in its own right and you will receive a full experience whether you are attending one module or many.
Do I need to be a qualified movement practitioner to join the course?
Yes it is a pre-requisite that you are either a movement teacher or manual therapist and have a good level of anatomy knowledge before joining this course.
How long do I have access to the course for?
If you enrol onto the full diploma you will have your own private access to our online platform with all recordings and resources as well as access to the community forum for 12 months after the last module (until January 2025).
If you enrol onto a single module then we will have access to the online platform for three months after the module takes place.
Will I get a certificate?
You will receive a certificate of attendance either for the full diploma or single modules, based on what you have attended.
