Professional Learning Objectives

 • Understand the sequencing of movement in the gait cycle

• Experience the 3D motion of the pelvis that organizes the leg for a dynamic single leg stance

• Discover how the foot sets in motion the efficiency of the swing leg and the “spring” of the stance leg

• Organize the head, shoulder and pelvic girdles for fluid rotation/ counter-rotation

• Unlock the mobility of the ribs and thoracic spine during swing and stance

• Know potency and power of the abdominal muscles’ capacity for uprightness

• Reorient mid-line trunk awareness for improved functional tasks and pleasurable walking

CEUs provided for Massage Therapy through NCMTB, Feldenkrais Guild of North America and select PT associations. 


 • At the heart of the human experience, the “how” of walking shapes physical comfort, security, emotional well- being and happiness, regardless of medical diagnosis. Every pain doctor, mental and physical health professional and wellness coach stresses how important it is to go out for walks.

• But what if your walks are hurting? Many do not know that walking can be damaging when unbalanced. What if walking could be more beneficial, enjoyable and wellness-producing?

• This course offers a different solution for chronic pain and discomfort in the neck, shoulder, wrist, upper/lower back, knees and reoccurring injuries and strains.

• Using the sensory learning platforms of the Feldenkrais Method® and Bones for Life®, the professional and the layperson both discover the cause and effect relationship between poor patterns of movement and wellness.

• This course advances beyond the traditional study of characteristics found in the stance and swing phases of gait. Using Integral Human GaitTM theory, we explore a comprehensive map that far exceeds the current understanding of physical medicine, rehabilitation and sports training.
