Normal Price
Member $160.00

Description, Requirements

Whether our clients want to stand on one leg without falling, walk down stairs without knee pain, enjoy a weeklong trek, succeed at indoor rock climbing or run a marathon the dynamics of stability and mobility to come into their zenith in the gait patterns. 

In this workshop we will explore the questions “Are stability and mobility really different things?”, “What is the ideal gait?” and “How do we sustain youthfulness in our verticality?”

We will address 

  • The complexity and importance of the standing leg bias
  • What ‘stability’ and ‘mobility’ mean within the neurological framework
  • Homologous, Homolateral and Contralateral stability/mobility variances
  • The biological, pedagogical and structural elements at play in how we locomote
  • The vital relationship between hip joint, talus bone and 4th metatarsal
  • The psychophysical aspects of the stability/mobility paradigm 

Practically we will explore

  • Observational tools and tests for assessing gait patterns and problems
  • Equipment based exercises to increase hip joint proprioception and control
  • Feldenkrais/floor based transition exercises for improving stability/mobility and gait
  • Using foam rollers in novel, subtle and challenging ways
  • Specific cueing and propping to target inhibited muscle proprioception and control
