Anatomy Trains provides a comprehensible way for movement educators to observe the body more clearly. Throughout each workshop you be able to identify and trace one of the 6 fascial lines of Anatomy Trains. These tools will expand your postural assessment and provide more effective choices on how to help the student/client within the Pilates repertoire.

Doris Pasteleur Hall
Doris has been a student and a teacher of movement, including dance, Pilates and Yoga, for over 30 years. Her complementary research into the somatic modalities of Laban, Body-Mind Centering, Anatomy in Clay and kinetic anatomy have fostered and augmented her interest in the body-mind embodiment. She attended the first Body language from Kinesis done in New York City with Tom Meyers, author of Anatomy Trains.
The Deep Front Line means the core of the entire body. Between front/back and side to side of the body. We will trace the muscle/fascial chain that goes from the foot through the adductors, psoas, diaphragm, throat and side of the skull.
Doris currently works with Tara Collins, PT at Black Rock Physical Therapy in Bridgeport, CT as a very qualified movement/neuromuscular re-educator. She continues to teach Pilates independently specializing with injuries and pain. Doris strives to continuously hone her teaching abilities to help people get from where they are to where they want to be.
Doris had studied and taught at Carol Trier’s Pilates studio. She also taught at White Cloud, New York, the first Gyrotonic studio from 1988-1993. She has been teaching teachers since 1997 through the PhysicalMind and now internationally workshops to teachers about the body.
