Take a deep and comprehensive journey into a fascinating area of the body. We will explore advanced bone, muscle and joint anatomy from a broader perspective—incorporating myofascial, neuromuscular, and other approaches. Students will gain an advanced understanding of pelvic/hip anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology.

I'll teach using a variety of anatomical models as well as 3D graphics, charts, experiential exercises, table demonstrations and more. Students will gain increased knowledge of prevention and treatment strategies for many pelvic/hip challenges. Approximately half the class time will be devoted to table work where students will practice neuromuscular techniques that have proven effective for lessening pain and tension.

Embodied Kinesiology

I’m currently accepting reservations for a small online pilot course in experiential kinesiology. This is a hybrid course with both online and live interaction. Learn the foundations of movement in an engaging and innovative way.

We’ll explore the axial and appendicular skeleton, joint biomechanics, over 70 muscle groups, myofascial and kinetic chains, neuromuscular theories, and somatic practices from a variety of traditions. The initial pilot program is open to only 12 students. Contact me for more information.
