Through everyday lifestyle patterns, injuries, illness, stress or trauma, our bodies may experience movement restrictions, weakness and/or pain. The body can lose its balance and freedom of movement.
Our instructors, each with over 20 years experience teaching Pilates, use their ability to read the body’s movement patterns, their understanding of myofascia manual releases techniques and the use of the Pilates method to help address and improve these issues.
Born to Walk by James Earls
A two day workshop
Saturday 02.03.2024 from 9:00- 17:00
Sunday 03.03.2024 from 9:00 - 17:00
Walking is one of the most common daily functions, but one of the least understood biomechanically. To understand anatomy the therapist must first understand function. In this workshop we analyse the mechanics of efficient gait, looking at the chain of movement events from the feet to the spine and into the shoulders. We explore how gravity and momentum work in concert with joints and the fascial and myofascial tissue to improve proprioceptive communication, muscle firing, and collagenous tissue recoil. You will come away with the tools to investigate, analyse and intervene in non-pathological walking. We will explore the many ways in which collagenous tissues assist movement efficiency and then learn how to build a personalised movement program to improve your clients’ gait. His subject is applicable for a wide-ranging audience that includes osteopaths, physiotherapists, massage therapists and movement therapists.
James Earls is a writer, lecturer and bodyworker, specialising in Myofascial Release and Structural Integration. In recent years he has concentrated on blending movement with manual therapy to create a new functional approach to bodywork. Throughout his 25 year career as a practising bodyworker, James has traveled widely to learn from the best educators in his field, including Thomas Myers, Art Riggs, and Gary Gray. James worked alongside Tom Myers to co-author “Fascial Release for Structural Balance”, a definitive guide to the assessment and manipulation of fascial patterns. He helped build the reputation of Anatomy Trains for Tom Myers through the UK, Europe, and worldwide. James is now concentrating on finding new approaches to understanding how to apply movement and myofascial principles to bodywork. He teaches a range of his own courses and is a regular lecturer at conferences and workshops around the globe. James’ blend of movement and fascial understanding led to the publication of his well-received “Born to Walk”, an introduction to the interconnected mechanics of the body, and the more recent 'Understanding the Human Foot’.
