Functional Anatomy of Movement 1-day workshop *BRAND NEW FOR 2023!*
Movement is complex. It is multidimensional, constantly changing, and difficult to make practical sense of.
We’re all used to hearing that ‘it’s all connected’ but we’ve never been given the means to effectively describe how. Imagine how you could change your practice if you could take control of movement. Imagine being able to describe movement in a way that honours its complexity while granting a clear vision of all the interactions involved. Imagine how your assessments, your treatments, and your exercise suggestions could all change to perfectly match the needs of the client in front of you.
The last few years have seen many new vocabularies develop to help describe the experience of movement, an essential part of being human and being in our bodies. Many schools claim tensegrity, biotensegrity, and spirals to be the basis of all human movement - which they may well be - but how do we describe that? Unfortunately, the information provided so far has been largely ephemeral, considering the system as a mysterious, unwieldy whole, and not especially helpful in providing a foundation of language for understanding the reality of human anatomy in motion.
Compare this with the reductionist approach of traditional anatomy textbooks which we are all (rather begrudgingly) too familiar with, presenting each piece of the puzzle separately in the wild hope that we can somehow put them all together to make a working whole. Hint: we can't. As we all know, the most interesting things - and especially a human being - are far, far more than the sum of all their parts.
After 30 years of searching for the tools, James Earls has found a way of blending the truths of movement with the truths of human anatomy. Together, they form the basis of a vocabulary that can be easily learned, is immediately understandable, and can be incredibly powerful in your quest to help humans to move more efficiently.
In this one-day workshop:
Arrive with your curiosity turned up to 10, ready to play, to move and explore. You will leave at the end of the day genuinely inspired and ready to embrace movement in your practice with greater clarity and confidence.
