Unique and meaningful...

Anatomy Training

Anatomy in Three Dimensions™ is one of the most unique and meaningful anatomy courses you can take at any stage of your career. You will build the muscles in clay on specially designed skeletons and imprint the body’s design deeply into your mind. It is great for both beginners and anatomy nerds alike. Ahmé can also travel to your location to teach this course upon request (minimum 6 participants).

A passion for movement...

Barre Training

Balanced Body Barre® takes the original Lotte Berk method and updates it with Balanced Body Movement Principles to create a high energy, safe and fun workout appropriate for all levels of fitness levels and ages.
