Walking, more than just a functional outcome. How you walk can be an unmatched evaluation tool for assessing the quality of life.
This course goes beyond the customary study of characteristics of stance and swing phases of gait. By using Integral Human Gait Theory™, we explore a comprehensive map that surpasses the existing knowledge in physical medicine, therapy, rehabilitation, and sports training. The “how” of walking drives physical comfort, emotional well-being, security, and happiness.
Using the sensory learning platforms of the Somatic Functional Mobilization™, Feldenkrais Method®, and Bones For Life®. you will study the interplay of alignment and pressure through ground reaction forces to answer the following questions:
- What impact does gait have on the neck, shoulder, and upper/lower back health?
- Why is walking beneficial only if it is balanced?
- In what ways does gait resonate with the rhythms of the body
