Sunday May 1, (5pm – 7:30pm) $70 – Gait and the anti-gravity chain

  Extending beyond where you are…

  In this short workshop you will gain a glimpse at the role of the anti-gravity muscles in gait.

  We will investigate how your gait, your walking, can become easier and more efficient by incorporating the natural reflex extension patters available to us all (though often neglected).

  How your gait’s natural process can lengthen your spine, how walking can extend the thoracic spine, offset the hunching that gravity, ageing and lifestyle seems to inspire.

  Part of the “gait as a therapeutic process” and related to the thoracic workshops, this workshop will offer an elegant way to lengthen & straighten the spine and reinforce concepts of thoracic mobility while walking. —————————————————————–

————————-Saturday May 14, (11am-4pm) – Gait as a therapeutic process Putting a useful spring in your step…

  In this half day workshop we are going to investigate walking as a therapeutic process, feeling the physics of gait.

  Easy gentle explorations of some of the components of walking will be investigated while comfortably lying on the floor as well as in standing.

  The bio mechanics of good, easy walking has similar elements  to that of good easy running and generally puts less strain on joints, ligaments and muscles. If you want to reduce pain or run faster the same refinements are needed

  The whole self is involved in walking and can be used not only for transport and exercise but also as a powerful bodily alignment process which is empowering in its own right

  We will look into how refinement of walking (gait) can lead to marvellous improvements in many areas of your overall functioning.

  Using the the obvious biomechanical realities of the human body and our neurological feed back systems we can discover fluency and ease of movement that is a joy to do and pleasing to see.       Walking, the way to functional improvement.

  When walking is hard so is life…

This workshop will run from 11am – 4pm
The cost is $120 payable on the day.
Payable on the day, cards & bitcoin is good

Why Do It

Breathing Pelvic Literacy Shoulders
Pete_Binns_Atm2010 pic_2 pic_3
Breathing involves over 104 joints and 60 muscles.Breathing evolved as we subjected ourselves to the full force of gravity and atmospheric pressure. The pelvis has the potential to move in an infinite number of planes. It is connected to all the largest, most powerful muscles in the body.The pelvis is central to all movement. The thoracic, cervical spine and the shoulder girdle are used in our culture firstly for emotional expression and secondly for physical function.This is probably one reason lower backs complain from overuse.
