Course Details

  • £349.00
  • 82 lessons
  • 8 hours of video content
  • We highly recommend that you have completed the Closed Chain Biomechanics of the Lower Limb, Biomechanics of the Upper Body in Motion & the Lower & Upper Body Assessments course before commencing the Flow Motion Model course.
  • Gary’s flagship Flow Motion Model is finally available online. It’s ultimately what Gary is known for: Gary broke the mould of anatomical thinking with his Flow Motion Model. The model itself describes the journey of every single bone and joint in the human body in all three dimensions over a period of 0.6 to 0.8 seconds which is the time it takes to complete a human footstep.

The anatomical insights to be gained from the Flow Motion Model, including the indirect connections between one joint and another (whether in close proximity or far apart), gently challenge what we think we know about anatomy and with this understanding creates a powerful approach to take forward into helping a person understand their limitations and challenged in their body that are causing them pain.

If optimising movement and working in a holistic framework to see how the whole body moves together as one single unit is your thing, then the Flow Motion Model course is for you. Unlock this course to be in a position to access further learning materials and opportunities with Anatomy in Motion.

I'm so grateful Gary collected all his observations and learnings to put them into a course and share it with other people. With his wonderful way of teaching and a language that was easy to catch as a non native speakerI was enjoying every single session. I was struggling so much with the training and Sportstherapist approaches offered in University or elsewhere and couldn't find the clue. Now I found what I was looking for and after completing all of the courses I feel the journey just began. Thank you Gary and Team. Thank you very much!

ONLINE SUPPORT - PLEASE READ!

We live in an age where social media and the internet which has made it very easy to reach out for support and answers…. while this is a truly remarkable advancement in how we are able to live our lives today, what does it stop us doing?


Unless we are self motivated and independent learners, it can stop us from being with a problem to truly begin to understand it. Do you remember the time when you purchased a textbook to learn from and you were not able to reach out to the author to ask for help? What did you do?

You became resourceful and started to look for ways to get the information you needed to answer your own questions…That was and still is, in our opinion, the real gift of learning…the ability to answer questions by understanding more rather than having the questions answered without really understanding what the answer is or means.

This has been a cornerstone of the teaching in AIM and will remain there whether it is in person or online. We want you to use your body to find the answer… it is not always easy, it is not always fun, but if it leads to better understanding, then we see it as worth the time, challenge and effort.
