The 5 Primary Kinetic Chains poster set is a superb visual reference for teachers and students of movement and anatomy, as well as manual therapists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and their clients alike.

Likewise, the Desktop Edition incorporates the images and charts found in the 5PKC poster set with additional helpful information.  The Desktop Edition is a spiral-bound beautifully illustrated 8×10 compact and portable anatomy book.  All 24 pages are heavy laminate to ensure years of use.

Applied Anatomy for Yoga Therapeutics lays the foundation for greater understanding of both movement and anatomy.  It is for practitioners and students alike.   Movement specialist, yogi, and kinesiologist Joseph Schwartz invites the reader to go on a journey of anatomy by exploring movement.



New in 2020 – when you purchase a Poster Set or Desktop Edition, you also receive immediate access to The 5PKC Online Education Course that includes nearly two hours of video and seven handouts specifically designed to help  give you a more in-depth understanding of how to utilize The 5 Primary Kinetic Chains in the therapeutic assessment process and for client education.

The 5 Primary Kinetic Chains are based on the theorem behind Andry Vleeming’s Core Subsystems.  Each chart outlines a primary physiological principle in movement: bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and fascia do not work in isolation. They work synergistically to create movement.  When movement is balanced and efficient, the players are all cooperating.

The five poster set series and Desktop Edition use the walking gait to demonstrate how The 5 Primary Kinetic Chains work together to unify the body. Why use walking as a barometer of health, movement, and vitality? Simply because it is the one thing that most of us do daily and are either doing so – integrated, which boosts vitality, or compensated – which is detracting from vitality.

The integration of the 5PKC and the Principal Actions (explained in greater detail in the Desktop Edition) are a baseline for our health. By looking at our anatomy through the lens of movement, it offers a welcome and useful shift in how we look at the body.

    As a a massage therapist I’ve been looking for an aid to help give me a better visual of the Fascial chains and how it can affect different areas. This desktop addition is just what I was looking for. The spiral notebook is an easy read and gives great explanations. It is a good reference/refresher between clients.
