Prerequisites: Open to licensed health care practitioners, massage therapists, yoga and Pilates instructors, and other health care professionals who have had anatomy coursework (coursework does not need to be recent).
Description: Dr. Love offers a vibrant learning experience of the human body, and is sensitive to your concerns about mortality and the body as a vessel of the spirit. Class size is limited to ensure that each participant will have the opportunity to view and touch the cadavers while she narrates and answers questions. She will also tailor her instruction to specific individual interests wherever possible.
Course notes: There will not be a formal break during the session. You are encouraged to bring a beverage or light snack that would be kept outside the lab for a personal break.
The class is held in the cadaver lab where the bodies are preserved with formaldehyde. Although the lab has excellent air ventilation and circulation, the university provides formaldehyde blocking respirators for class participants. Lab coats and nitrile gloves are also provided for personal protection.
Cost note: Register early - class size is limited to 12 participants.
Location: Bastyr University Kenmore Campus, rooms #57 (initial check-in) and #50 (lab). Bastyr University is housed in an older facility with fluctuating interior temperatures; it is advisable to wear layers. Also, Bastyr is a “fragrance-free” campus.
Audience: Open to licensed health care practitioners, massage therapists, yoga and Pilates instructors, and other health care professionals who have had anatomy coursework (coursework does not need to be recent).
