Challenge and Advanced Client with Beginner System w/ Aubrey Johnson

Advanced clients don't always have to do the advanced reformer or mat work to be challenged at their level. This is a matter of vocabulary. This workshop will help you to return to the Beginner System, to challenge the client with the clarity of anatomically stabilizing cues. We will revisit all of the biomechanical concepts and how to apply them to the basic workout!

Open to instructors who have at least beginner/intermediate apparatus level teaching experience.

Take your postural assessment skills to the next level!

Ida Rolf said, “seeing is touch at a distance”. Understanding skeletal relationships within the body is the first step in helping our clients unwind movement and postural patterns that are causing pain, dysfunction and keeping them from optimal movement. “Touch is seeing up close” being able to accurately palpate bones to determine relationships is key in our ability to accurately describe those relationships.

Saturday / November 9, 2019 / 9:00am-5:30pm

Body Reading 101 w/ Carrie Gaynor

This one day workshop explores relational anatomy and helps build your seeing and palpation skills to determine skeletal patterns and how they interact in the body. Learn the language of BodyReading, tilt, bend, shift and rotate to accurately describe the geometry of the body in a way your client can understand. Assess common postural patterns in all planes of motion. Skills learned today can be immediately used with your clients tomorrow. This is a must for any practitioner in movement and bodywork and will help take your practice to the next level.

Sunday / November 10, 2019 / 9:00am-5:00pm

Body Reading 102 w/ Carrie Gaynor

Now you are able to see and describe bony relationships learn about the inter-relationships between the Anatomy Trains and the skeleton. The Anatomy Trains lines of pull and force transmission are impacted by skeletal alignment and can also hold the bony alignment in place for better or worse.

“Where you think it is, it ain’t!” – Ida Rolf

Learn how the problem can be very distant from the area of pain.

This workshop covers:

-How the meridians can hold a postural pattern and be influenced by skeletal alignment.


-Concentric and eccentric loading and the forces that shape our body

-Basic functional assessments to see what is moving, what isn’t and what may be moving too much!

-How a local restriction can have a global impact

-How to document your findings
