AssessingThe Body

Many Pilates teachers are talented in assessing standing posture, but what happens when the body becomes dynamic and movement happens? In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn the basics of assessing the body in motion. Walk away knowing how to:

  • See the body and as a spiral structure in three dimensions.
  • Identify fascial restrictions that cause structural imbalances and the compensatory patterns that follow.
  • Assess stability vs. mobility using the Masses and Spaces Model.
  • Cue the bones and use hands-on techniques for enhanced kinesthetic awareness and more efficient movement.

Michael’s 25+ years as a hands-on therapist and movement teacher have culminated into a blend of out-of-the-box thinking to resolve chronic pain and restore comfort to his clients. His formal education at the Rolf Institute taught him that the body is in a constant state of adaptation and that the stress of daily living can compromise that essential function. Standing by this philosophy and utilizing knowledge from other trainings including in-depth Pilates and yoga, motor control, Cross Fit, cranial sacral, MELT Method, and a host of other somatic based methods, Michael’s success rate at treating difficult to diagnose problems is very high.
