HEALTHY HIPS::
FRIDAY MARCH 23 • 10AM-12PM
So many low back issues can be traced to imbalances in the psoas. When people present with pain and muscular spasm in their low backs it is often a spasm or imbalance in the iliopsoas complex. Understanding the psoas’ structure and function can help you understand how to experience a life free of low back and hip pain. In this workshop we’ll explore all the traditional concepts of structure and function and at the same time create a new schematic for understanding the psoas.

HAPPY SHOULDERS::
SATURDAY MARCH 24 • 3-6PM
This workshop will not only give you a clinical understanding of shoulder mechanics and anatomy, but will provide you with concrete tools to work with your clients and students so that they may enjoy a lifetime of strong and stable shoulders.
