Every Step You Take: Neurovascular Release and Gait Series Live Online with Kieran Schumaker

Expand your map of the nerves and vessels in the lower body

Kieran Schumaker has designed this experiential tour through the neurovascular network as a follow-up to the Anatomy Trains dissection series “Every Step You Take,” in which Tom Myers and Todd Garcia helped us look at the anatomy and dynamics of gait in the hip, thigh, knee, ankle, and foot. You do not need to have taken the dissection in order to attend and get benefit from this series. 

Kier’s neurovascular anatomy lessons, Neurovascular Release techniques, and strategies are game-changers for massage therapists, physiotherapists, structural integrators, yoga teachers, Pilates instructors, and movement therapists.

Free your stride

Participants will experience better alignment while standing, ease in squatting, and strength in rising up onto the balls of their feet, with overall improvements in joint articulation and balance. Taking this for a walk or run, you will likely notice improved stride length and efficiency, and freer, more comfortable climbing and descending of stairs and hills.

Professionals involved in athletics and high-performance sports will come away with new strategies for injury prevention and rehabilitation, and tools for fine-tuning left-right balance throughout the lower body. Each module will cover anatomy and self-treatment techniques, with a sampling of manual therapy applications, followed by Q&A.

Note: If you cannot attend live, these webinars will be recorded and all registrants will receive access to the recordings for 45 days! 

Module 1 – Back Issues and Neurovascular Restriction in the Lower Extremities

Understand how vascular injury and vascular restrictions in the lower extremities contribute to:

  • Sciatica symptoms
  • Left-right imbalances that connect the lower and upper body
  • Low back pain
  • Functional scoliosis
  • Lower extremity nerve pain
  • Unevenness of gait

Kier will lead you through a self-treatment sequence on the floor that will free up your back muscles and improve spinal movement. Invite a friend or family member to receive a manual version from you in the second hour of class.

Props: You will need a yoga mat plus a soft tennis ball (youth tennis balls have lower pressure), a softly spiky ball, or a yoga tune-up ball. If you want to practice the manual version of this approach while Kier guides you through it, you will need a massage table set up near your computer.
