In this workshop, you learn to analyze our patterns of ambulation from our feet, up through the legs and hips, into the pelvis, and up the spine into shoulders. Based on the Spinal Engine theory, this workshop will help you see the gait mechanics as a whole body experience. Your power of observation and understanding of how movement is integrated as we walk will expand dramatically. You will leave with a completely new way of seeing bodies as people walk along, and with a repertoire of simple exercises that have profound and positive effects on a person’s gait mechanics.
- Understand the gait mechanics and its impact on functional movement
- Develop the skills to effectively observe the gait mechanics and identify dysfunctional patterns
- Learn to make educated exercise choices to promote positive changes in the gait mechanics
- Practice with a repertoire of exercises that positively affect gait mechanics
