BIOMECHANICS OF ADAPTIVE ALIGNMENT
A TENSEGRITY APPROACH
5-Modules | 140-hr Training | 4-day Long Weekend Format
- this format includes practitioner exchanges-
Instructor: Aimee Kolsby
Course Description: Liz Gaggini developed a system that takes biomechanics out into the fascial matrix of the human body. Based on the principles of connective tissue adaptability and tensegrity mechanics, this five-module series teaches a full body approach for correcting the structural misalignments that create pain and joint degeneration which greatly disturb equilibrium, balance and integrated movement.
MODULE 1: Biomechanics of the Pelvis and Natural Alignment 4-day
FEB 22-25, 2024 (Thu-Sun) 4-day Costa Mesa, CA
In this 4-day class, you will learn to assess natural alignment through factors of girdle position, spinal curvature and appendicular rotations. You will learn the anatomy and kinesiology of the different patterns of tilt, shift, symmetry and asymmetry that can be found within the pelvic girdle. Work will be demonstrated for bringing the pelvis into balance and symmetry. Cost: $650. Early Bird Special $550 if paid in full before December 15, 2023
MODULE 2: Biomechanics of the Shoulder Girdle 4-day
APRIL 18-21, 2024 (Thu-Sun) 4-day Costa Mesa, CA
As with the pelvis, here you will learn the anatomy and kinesiology of the different patterns of tilt, shift, symmetry and asymmetry that can be found with the shoulder girdle. Work will be demonstrated for bringing the shoulder girdle into balance and symmetry. Cost: $650
MODULE 3: Biomechanics of the Arms and Legs 4-day
JUNE 20-23, 2024 (Thu-Sun) 4-day Costa Mesa, CA
You will learn how appendicular counter-rotations create adaptive function. Specific assessments for all the joints of the legs, feet, arms and hands will be demonstrated and practiced. You will learn specific techniques for de-rotating segments of the legs, feet, arms and hands for creating greater adaptive range. Cost: $650
MODULE 4: Biomechanics of Spine and Neck 4-day
SEP 19-22, 2024 (Thu-Sun) 4-day Costa Mesa, CA
You will learn to apply the principles of spinal biomechanics to the entire skeletal and fascial matrix of the entire torso. You will learn palpatory, visual and movement techniques for assessing vertebrae and rib alignments. You will learn a full matrix approach for correcting the side bends and rotations of the spine and ribs that integrates with the work for the pelvic and shoulder girdles. Cost: $650
MODULE 5: Advanced Techniques and Dysfunctional Patterns 4-day
TBD (Thu-Sun) 4-day Costa Mesa, CA
You will see how not all asymmetries are functionally adaptive. These dysfunctional asymmetries prevent the progress of any structural integration applications. You will learn special correction protocols for transforming these dysfunctional alignments into functional asymmetries that then can be further corrected with structural work. Advanced techniques include working with joint motility and indirect techniques. Cost: $650
