Get to know the fascial system and its movement mechanics! Then take it to the next level by blending this understanding with Active Fascial Release (AFR) techniques.

Walking is one of the most common daily functions but one of the least understood biomechanically.

In order to understand anatomy the therapist must first understand function. In this workshop we will analyse the mechanics of efficient gait, looking at the chain of events from the feet to the spine and into the shoulders. We will see how gravity works in concert with the joints and thereby the fascial and myofascial tissue to improve proprioceptive communication, muscle firing and collagenous recoil. You will come away with the tools to investigate, analyse and intervene in non-pathological walking and then learn how to build a personalised exercise or stretch program to affect and improve clients’ walking �and how to transfer this knowledge to running.

Workshop Format:

The workshop is split into roughly equal time on:

-Lecture/presentation of the concepts get to know the fascial system and its movement mechanics
-Active Fascial Release (AFR) Techniques
-Body and postural / movement analysis, and
stretching, “awakening”, and touch-cueing techniques from our (and your) movement education library.

This course helps you:

-Read your client’s postural and movement patterns with greater accuracy and integration.
-Analyse the normal motion of the spine, the naturally correcting mechanisms of how the pelvis moves the feet and the shock absorption roles of the joints.
-Understand the fascial system and its movement mechanics
Enable you to make distinct changes in your clients’ movement pattern.

Course Objectives:

+Understand fascial recoil: the roles of mechanoreceptors in the myofascia and the basic properties and connected nature of fascia; plus tensegrity as applied to fascia and human movement.
+A succinct and relevant introduction to geometry/character of the connective tissue, to understand fascial and anatomical links through the body & the sequence of events across joints in normal gait.
+Understand what switches on the ‘core’, what really corrects pronation, why we flex our elbows to run along with many other anatomical connections.
+Apply various tests & visual cues to assess gait and to construct alternative movement strategies to help unwind and resolve the patterns observed.

Learning Environment:

Illustrated lecture
Open inquiry atmosphere; questions encouraged; high degree of vitality and humour (not kidding here – James is hilarious)

+Participants will exchange palpation and practice reading the body on one another under supervised analysis of instructor and assistants.
