This course examines the spine as a tensegrity truss – how the bones float within the myofascial balance. An integral part of structure we all know the agonising effects of incorrect mechanics when it doesn’t work and often fail to appreciate the wonderfully adaptive job it does when the vertebrae are allowed to float.

We look at the actions available at each of the sections (lumbar, thorax and cervical) of the spine and how they may lead to certain dysfunctional patterns. By putting the spine into context with the surrounding structures we can better understand the reasons for its limitations and its wondrous abilities. Once we explain the logic pattern the soft-tissue patterns that surround the spine then through the assessment and learning our techniques for freeing and balancing them you will be able to address:

Anterior and posterior curvatures – lordosis and kyphosis,
Side bends,
Rotations (and counter rotations)
Guy-wires on both the front and back of the spine, and
Balancing the trunk spinal work into the cervical spine and sacrum

Each class includes:

Relevant anatomy for the area – short intensive and integrated presentations assemble the best figures from multiple sources, including brand new learning tools such as video of fascial dissections and palpation of the relevant structures to convey the information in an inspiring and understandable fashion,
BodyReading (visual assessment) – the common postural and movement implications – how to see and ‘read’ them in the intricacy of individual patterns
Fascial Release Techniques – each technique is fully laid out for intent and ‘feel’, with plenty of time for practice, ensuring that your can apply these methods immediately in your practice.
Cancellation fee: 800 HRK before October 1st or no refunds thereafter
