In this workshop we take an in-depth look at the structure of the spine and all the muscles that segmentally support, control and move the different spinal regions. We focus on functional movement in the spine as well as the role and contribution of the local and global muscle systems throughout the body. We explore 12 features of imbalanced activity in the local and global systems and what to do in a movement context to restore balance between the systems. We conclude by applying all this information to common spinal dysfunction and pain and posture patterns and creating a plan of action to move toward optimal function and movement.
- Gain a systematic and in-depth understanding of the spine
- Learn both methodical and creative ways to approach movement impairments in the spine
- Explore a variety of exercises that go beyond the Pilates repertoire, and push the envelope in terms of restoring optimal function and movement
