Anatomy Trains Structure and Function and Fascial Release for Structural Balance courses schedule for Clare 2017.
Anatomy Trains Structure and Function – 4 day workshop, run over 2 weekends around a month apart. Learn how the fascia is interdependent with the other body systems. See the fascial tissue in context and how the body incorporates the Anatomy Trains lines. In this workshop you will learn to balance these lines, we will show you how to trace these lines, and learn strategies to free the restrictions. Balance and harmony in the lines creates easy, graceful movement. Tensegrity, elastic recoil and force transfer through the lines. Motor control, soft tissue restriction? Fascial touch, body reading skills and movement assessments. Useful tools to take away and use the next day in your practice.
Dates – 8/9 April 2017 and 6/7 May 2017 – £560 early bird before 1/1/17 – £620 thereafter. 11/12 November and 2/3 December 2017 – £560 early bird before 1/10/17 – £620 thereafter.
Abdomen, Chest and Breath – The breath is an essential food for life and its passage in and out of the body can be compromised by structural issues in the trunk. The trunk must also act to support the shoulders as well as the neck and head. Its position and relationship with the pelvis can therefore be vital for correct mechanics of the upper limbs and head, neck and jaw issues.
The course focuses on the ribcage and its relationship with the pelvis to provide a secure anchoring point for the neck and shoulders and thoracic spine mechanics.
Dates – 10/11 June 9-5.30pm and 12 June 9-2pm 2017 – £380 early bird before 1/3/17 – £450 thereafter.
Tensegrity Spine – 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 does not work. We often fail to appreciate the wonderfully adaptive job it does when the vertebrae are allowed to “float”. Looking at the actions at each of the sections of the spine and how they may lead to dysfunctional patterns.
We put the spine into context with the surrounding structures to better understand the reasons for its limitations and its wondrous abilities..
Dates – 1/2 July 9-5.30pm and 3 July 9-2 2017 – £380 early bird before 1/4/17 – £450 thereafter.
Arches and Legs – Underpinning all of our structure is the foots interaction with the ground. Imbalances here clearly have consequences further up the body. Effective arch balance can be essential for easy and graceful walking, pelvic stability, low back effiency and even head and neck support. The feet and legs are literally the foundation of our structure and this workshop will analyse the bones of the feet and how they conspire to help or hinder the arches.
We will look at the forces coming from the leg muscles and create strategies to help maintain better mechanics by dealing with myofascial restrictions and imbalances.
Dates – 8/9/10 September 9-5.30pm 2017 – £450 early bird before 1/6/17 – £500 thereafter.
Shoulders and Arms – This is the age of driving and computers, and the arms get unique usage these days. Requiring a complex equation of stability v’s mobility to balance correctly on the ribcage, the shoulders can easily be used to compensate for thoracic and cervical deviations, or even be the cause of them. Problems can travel down the arms into the hands or up into the neck and jaw, and often into the spine and ribcage.
Learn to recognize ‘ideal’ and compensated patterns and how to tie them into the story of the rest of the body. This course will help you to see what needs to be done to create lasting results in the area.
Dates – 23/24 September 9-5.30pm and 25 September 9-2 2017 – £380 early bird before 1/7/17 – £450 thereafter.
Fans of the Hip – The hip and pelvis combine to transfer the forces from the two legs and into the one spine. They have a hugely complex role to fulfill n the body. Ida Rolf described the pelvis as “the joint that determines symmetry” and it is easy to see why. Differences between the hips can affect down into the legs or up through the spine. Achieving balance here can be essential for long lasting results in any therapy.
This course sheds light on the pelvis – the keystone of human architecture – by organizing the 20 or so muscles of the pelvis into 3 fans.
Dates – 7/8 October 9-5.30pm and 9th October 9-2pm – £380 early bird before 1/8/17 – £450 thereafter.
All workshops require 50% of course fee to be paid at time of booking. Balance required 8 weeks before workshop.
No refunds in that 8 week period. Fees can be transferred to another workshop in Clare.
