VM2-VC 07.10-11.21 VIRTUAL

VM2-VC: Visceral Manipulation: Abdomen 2; Virtual Component
VM2-VC July 10-11, 2021 Virtual Eastern Time (Miami)


We worked with our Curriculum Director to create this opportunity to share the foundation of the VM2 curriculum with you, via a Zoom online platform. Following this virtual course, you will be eligible to attend the 3-day VM2 in person hands-on class.

Enjoy this wonderful experience of studying with members of the BI International Teaching Team!

Program includes:

  • VM2-VC Virtual Component class (created by several BI Teachers) with Barral Institute live Zoom Facilitator.
  • VM2-VC live Zoom Question and Answer session with BI Teacher (either at the end of the VM2-VC or a date shortly after the VM2-VC).
  • Handout for VM2-VC and full VM2 Study Guide at the VM2-L.
  • Special Note:  As a refresher, several weeks prior to attending a VM2-L, VM2-VC alumni will be given access to review the VM2-VC recording. 


This virtual program provides the benefit of learning from BI Teachers from around the world. To allow for various time-zones, the presentations are pre-recorded. At the conclusion of the presentations, we offer a live question and answer session with a member of the international teaching team.

We will present lecture, anatomy and layered lab palpation that will prepare you to attend the VM2 in-person 3 day class. The didactic information will be immediately useful and allow for attending a 3-day versus a 4-day in person lab class.

In this course, you will begin with a review of VM1 principles and an introduction to additional concepts for VM2. Emphasis is on the kidneys, greater omentum, peritoneum, spleen and pancreas.
