Breath is the one movement we repeat more than 10,000 times a day – and it sits in the fulcrum between our conscious and unconscious. It affects emotional health and spinal health; it massages the organs, and the word spirit is based in breath.
Learn manual and movement techniques to free both the inhale and exhale movements, free the rib heads where they meet the spine, and balance the shoulders over the ribs. After this course, you’ll feel better and your clients will too.

You can tell a lot from watching someone walk – if you know what you are looking for. Here we look at the “essential events” in the gait pattern from the foot arches to the SI joint to the ribs and shoulders. Learn techniques to promote good arch response, foster knee tracking, and balance the pelvis to ease the strain patterns that lead to pain patterns in the hips, SI joint, and lower back.
Sometimes people have a “hitch in their git-along”– as Ida Rolf used to say. Learn to get specific about just where gait problems are so you can unwind them with ease and precision.
