Upper Body Alignment and Adjustments Exploratorium


This full weekend training is an exploratorium for learning upper 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. 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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define optimal blueprint
  • Learn a functional view of upper body alignment
  • Practice observation skills to ‘see the story’ of the students body
  • Cultivate awareness and appreciation for the power and presence of touch
  • Practice giving safe, empowering adjustments
  • Learn tools to refine our instincts as teachers

Schedule:
Friday June 17; 5:00-8:00pm
Saturday June 18; 1:00-6:00pm

Tuition: $140 for Friday and Saturday
