Striding Ahead

Striding Ahead: “Gait-way” to an Optimal Functioning Body

We are pleased to announce a new continuing education workshop. This interdisciplinary program is designed to upgrade the knowledge and practical application in the field of movement education. This workshop will include lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on lab work. Participants will receive a certificate of completion as well as a certificate of continuing education from the PMA (20 CECs) will be issued.

The objective is to introduce a systematic and logical approach to deconstruct and thereby thoroughly understand the synergy and relationship between the biomechanics of the foot, the sacrum, the pelvic floor, and the respiratory system. Armed with this deeper knowing we will be better equipped to deliver a well integrated whole body protocol introduced in the order of dynamic synergy. This to effectively improve or restore the key movement and staple of total wellness which is walking.

Walking, gait, striding, and ambulation are all words that describe the act of upright forward progression against gravity.

Reinforced by gravity this posture in motion called walking, provides the whole body with the most synergistic and complete movement.

Performed well, this very efficient and complex coordination of locomotion may therefore be the most therapeutic as well as restorative activity one can undertake. This comes down to a complete wellness model, one that requires no special equipment, no gear, only your own body and commitment to move.

By learning to understand this inter-related labyrinth in human motion this newly acquired knowledge we now have become a tool to restore the communicating pathways that via the fascial and neuromuscular system will provide ease and buoyancy in the fundamental movement we all share in common, the art of walking.

This program is available to Physical Therapists, Dance Educators, Athletic Trainers, Pilates and Gyrotonic® Instructors, and others by request.
