Fresh off of a weekend in Big Sky Country of western Montana! I thoroughly enjoyed the countryside and the crew that assembled to learn about triplanar AF hole control! Thank you gracious hosts Angie Robertson, Dale Koch and St. Peter's Physical Therapy for your efforts to make a great weekend of learning possible. I enjoyed this group of movement scientists, many of whom were new to the arena of PRI, as we discussed acetabulofemoral and femoroacetabular mechanics for neuro patients, high level competitive athletes and industrial athletes alike. We enjoyed a lively discussion about integration of known principles of rehab with PRI paradigm of retraining a system of movement with specific attention to identifying pathologies and applying PRI treatment paradigms to rectify them. Thank you Susan "NC" Fain and Rob "Blue Shirt" Gillespie for keeping the instructor on his toes, thank you Bob Sahli and Meg Zimmer for integrating with the group on multiple fronts. Thanks Lindsey Flint, Aric Thorne-Thomsen, Dale and Patient Paul Mann for helping model demonstration of testing and treatment techniques during lab. Stephen Dobelbower provided the coolest name to say and some great dialogue as well. So many engaging clinicians determined to learn how identify asymmetry, facilitate and integrate--thanks again Montana Myokin crew!

Very FUN weekend in the Boston area, at the host site Pure Performance in Needham, MA. Huge thank you to the Adam Vogel and his crew, BJ, Dan, Sam, Tad, and Micheal. Thank you guys for being gracious hosts and opening up your great training facility for us to teach the PRI Fitness & Movement Course. During this course I changed things up and was able to cover more material and teach attendees how to better reference different sections of the jammed packed course manual. We emphasized breathing as its relationship to postural balance as well as grounding and the biomechancial, physiological, and psychophysiology aspects which affect performance. Additionally, some of the basic yet crucial gait application and frontal plane principles needed for one to excel with a PRI integrated program were also emphasized and I taught how to apply to those principles to common fitness movement patterns. I am looking forward to finishing out the 2016 calendar in Arizona in November, and then restructuring and adding new content for 2017! Some quotes from the post course review sheets include: "Great Course, excellent presentation and coteaching from speakers. Course is easily digestable and simplified" "The flow of the course was awesome - incredible info very applicable to our athletic patient population"

On September 9th and 10th I went to IMPACT Physical Medicine and Aquatic Center in Minneapolis to present Cervical Revolution. It was so good for my heart and soul. In 2004, I met a gentleman named Stan Babel with a multi-disciplinary thinking spirit. Stan has a mind that complimented my mindful behavior. After all, at that time the Institute was only 3 years strong. His demeanor, sincerity and outlook on life reinforced my drive to continue to grow an interdisciplinary culture. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudice and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly. Mr Babel courageously had the first PRI Aquatics pool built in Texas, shipped it to Minneapolis, knocked a hole in the side of a building and created a “stir” of excitement with PRI Aquatic based concepts.

I’ve learned so much from him over the years and it all began with genuine honesty and trust. Therefore, giving this course and getting an opportunity to see this pool again was so rewarding for me. The IMPACT staff’s dedication to interdisciplinary mindedness is at the heart of what makes PRI. I asked Jen how many course attendees from IMPACT have attended PRI courses over the years; her response was “definitely over 20” and many of them are certified and have taken multiple courses.  Minneapolis/ St Paul was the first real PRI “hub”.  We are so indebted to these people.  I love them all, I enjoyed teaching material that is related to the neck and that also reflects their work, passion and, yes, their pool.

Postural Respiration was taught at the Detroit Medical Center in the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan building September 10-11, 2016. This course was 2/3 full of new students to PRI and many other first timers to Postural Respiration. This group was enthusiastic from the start and responded well to learning the basics of PRI from providing a foundation with a neutral pelvis then addressing ribcage management of tri-planer air flow. Some of the big hits for new time attendees were that the left hamstring is an essential muscle for pelvic repositioning and is necessary to achieve an agonistic relationship with a left abdominal wall. This basic but essential concept was a huge revelation to even the most seasoned practitioners attending. During lab the concept became very real as femurs started adducting after a non-manual repositioning technique. Of note was one of the PT's in the course had taken a Protonics course by Ron Hruska in 2000! During this course there was time to really correlate PRI testing with position of the diaphragm as it relates to the axial skeleton. Then being that this course has manual techniques, one and two person manual techniques were described and demonstrated numerous times with reasoning when and why a manual vs. non-manual technique would be used. Detroit is a great city and this was a great venue! The feedback was Michigan doesn't get enough PRI courses and they want more!
