This course is based on current scientific evidence about joint and spine biomechanics. The workshop is unique in that it challenges the traditional wisdom of how postural alignment and traditional exercises are taught. The course materials are compiled from various movement methods, all based on the laws of biomechanics.

After completing the self-study component and participating in the workshop, students will be prepared to introduce the basic elements of the course into their own practices. There is no final exam. Participants will be given an opportunity to review course material as well as ask questions at the end of the workshop.

We are available to travel to your facility as well as offering the workshop here in Palm Springs.
