BIOMECHANICS OF ALIGNMENT: A TENSEGRITY APPROACH TO BIOMECHANICS - 5 Module Weekend Format
- this format includes practitioner exchanges.
Instructor: Aimee Kolsby
Course Description: 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.
Sat-Sun May 4-5, 2019
Biomechanics of the Pelvis and Natural Alignment
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.
Sat-Sun July 20-21, 2019
Biomechanics of the Arms and Legs
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.
Sat-Sun Sep 21-22, 2019
Biomechanics of the Shoulder Girdle
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.
Sat-Sun Nov 16-17, 2019
Biomechanics of Spine and Neck
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.
Sat-Sun Jan 25-26, 2019
Advanced Techniques and Dysfunctional Patterns
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.
