Days 1 & 2: BodyReading Master Class 

“The art of seeing into someone is an old and intuitive one,” states Tom Myers, author of BodyReading: Visual Assessment and the Anatomy Trains.

This Master Class offers an effective tool to map soft tissue patterns seen in bends, tilts, shifts, and rotations, and once the assessment is completed, how to create a strategy to shape the change either through manual therapy or movement.

This workshop covers:

  • Biotensegrity – what it is and why it matters
  • How the neuromyofascial web can hold a postural pattern and be influenced by skeletal alignment
  • Concentric and eccentric loading and the forces that shape our body
  • Basic assessments to see how postural patterns affect movement
  • How a local restriction can have a global impact
  • Common postural patterns and manual and movement strategies

BodyReading is useful for any bodywork practitioner using manual therapy—including physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors, myofascial and trigger point therapists, and massage therapists. BodyReading is also a great tool for movement professionals – teachers of yoga, pilates, GYROTONIC®, and personal trainers – providing the information needed to deliver effective treatments and programs to create long-lasting, systemic change in clients’ shape and structure.

Learn to see through a master’s eyes and take your postural assessment skills to the next level!

Day 3: Resilience – Taking the Strain and Coming Back Stronger 

No one lives a stress-free life. The question is: how to handle it in a health enhancing manner, rather than having it slowly break down your resilience. Resilience is a state of the body that reflects into your state of mind. New understandings of how our whole systems act and interact gives us new methods of self-regulation and energy management.

This course is designed to build your own resilience, and help you recognize the signs of distress and growing resilience in your students, patients, or clients.

Where is your shoe nailed to the floor? Deep grief, trauma, long illness, a constant frustration – all of these can sap your resilience. Structural, physiological, and psychological health are all related – and all work through elasticity and plasticity – in the nervous system, the chemical system, and the myofascial system.

Using the breath, stretching, awareness meditation, and focused attention, we will explore the limits of the neural, biochemical, and fascial ‘whole-body’ systems: how to make stress work for you, what to do to lessen distress, increase balance, and have the most resilient system you can have.

We’ve heard of IQ, and most of us have heard of EQ – Emotional Intelligence – but what about KQ – Physical Intelligence? Understand plasticity in the body on a global level to make the best use of our organismic responses to life situations.
