Anatomy in 3D

A unique exploration into the anatomy of the human body

Build muscles in clay on a specially designed skeleton and imprint the body’s design deeply into your mind. Anatomy in Three Dimensions is a compelling/effective, engaging and fun way to learn the basics of musculoskeletal anatomy. By building the muscles with your own hands you will develop a deep understanding of the structure and function of the human body.

Learn the structure and function of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, as well as the origin, insertion and action of the muscles. This course pairs muscle function with specific exercises in order to reinforce and apply the anatomical information to movement. Muscles and joints from the knees through the shoulders are covered.

Who Should Attend

AI3D is great for beginners as well as anatomy nerds! Pilates and yoga instructors, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, personal trainers, athletic trainers, physical therapists, osteopaths, etc., are welcome.

Join us for the full, 16-hour course or for smaller, more specific workshops. Anyone who works with the body will gain a deeper understanding of how the muscles and bones affect movement.  Balanced Body teaches Anatomy in Three Dimensions around the world at AI3D Partner Authorized Training Centers and at most Pilates on Tour conferences. We can also bring an AI3D class to your facility.

Comprehensive Course

The AI3D 16-hour, two-day comprehensive course builds the pelvis, legs, abdominals, spine, back and shoulder girdle. We start with building the deep muscles and work out toward the superficial musculature. Movement-based practical lectures, interwoven into the build process, help bring the anatomy to life.

AI3D Anatomy-Specific Workshops

Our four-hour workshops are ideal for short anatomy intensives on specific musculature and function. Combined, these individual segments satisfy the comprehensive course and anatomy requirement for Balanced Body Pilates instructor training programs.


Balanced Body recommends AI3D to fulfill your Pilates anatomy pre-requisite. This method of learning anatomy is fundamentally rich in meaning, and provides an ability to understand and see the body in a unique manner. Because you build the model, it is also a personal and intimate learning opportunity.
