This full weekend training is an exploratorium for learning lower body alignment, including safe joint mobilization and optimal muscular and skeletal relationships for healthy movement patterns. We’ll look beyond the idea that there are “universal principles” for alignment and adjustments in order to see our students individually and make suggestions based on the story that each student’s body is telling. Eric Fanklin says, “Touch is a powerful way to influence body awareness because it is one of the first ways that we experience the boundary of the body.” Through sensitive and intelligent verbal cueing and hands on work, we will access tools that point our students toward the boundaries of form and the possibility of expansion.
- Define optimal blueprint
- Learn a functional view of lower body alignment
- Practice seeing your students as shri embodied
- Cultivate awareness and appreciation for the power and presence of touch
- Practice giving safe, empowering adjustments
