I spent time in Chicagoland teaching Impingement & Instability. I was so pumped by the end of this past weekend because the group was switched-on, the room was electric and the exchanges were dynamite!  Reference Centers ruled the days and several folks found some new neurological pathways for solutions to plaguing issues. Tim-inhibit those TFL's, Deb- breathe!!, Liz- R Glute max for your daughter, Barb-R subscapularis and Bill...I'll just keep taking notes brother!!

It's officially Fall, which means that the Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) application deadline is quickly approaching. If you are interested in applying, applications must be received by October 15th. CLICK HERE to find out more information about the PRT credentialing program. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me!

Here are a few testimonials from some of those who have completed the PRT credentialing program:

"It was one of the most meaningful two days that I have ever had! Thank you guys so much for providing us this opportunity."
- Akihito Tajima, ATC, PEC, PRT

"Everything was great! Really good stimulated critical thinking and application of the information. The two days flowed really well and built off of everything before it. The application process was a great learning experience in itself."
- Andrew Hauser, ATC, CSCS, PRT

"While the application process was quite rigorous, it sets a high standard and I feel confident with my colleagues' passion, intellect and knowledge regarding PRI. The credentialing process was a complete joy and an additional learning process!"
- Lilla Marhefka, PhD, HFS, CES, CSCS, PRT

We had a great time in Montreal this past weekend with Pelvis Restoration. We had an integrative room full of healthcare practitioners with various backgrounds. I feel by the end of the weekend, they appreciated the importance of a hemi-pelvis and frontal plane control of this hemi-pelvis during left stance and /or right swing phases of gait.I also felt an improved understanding of how important the pelvis is to truly integrate the body. I thoroughly enjoyed “coaching” these individuals and feel blessed to have spent the weekend with each of them. Here’s a picture of us taking our hats off to Ron Hruska in our extended hyperinflated state!

When James Anderson asked me if I thought there would be interest in a PRI Affiliate Course for Yoga one year ago, neither of us would have believed that it would bring together 60 people for the first course. Participants came from all across North America representing various health, fitness, and coaching professions. Over 1/3 of the participants were yoga instructors (including James' wonderful new wife Karen) with no formal PRI training prior. Welcome to PRI Nation, yogis!

We dove right in Saturday morning with James presenting his Affiliate Course overview of PRI. The audience gained appreciation for PRI's unique -and asymmetrical- platform and our un-waivering respect for neurology, respiration, and biomechanics. By specifically highlighting how the Left AIC and Right BC patterns impair ZOA, gait, and availability of motion, he began the conversation on how yoga can equally optimize or minimize an individual's neutrality. After lunch, I introduced the PRI Yoga Screens, PRI Yoga Awareness Sites (PRIYAS) with a hat tip to Impingement & Instability Reference Centers, and key PRI Opposition Muscles to be mindful of in yoga. I hope that these  screening tools will empower yoga teachers to feel confident in understanding the outcomes of their intervention as well as provide the basis for a referral to -and clear communication with- a PRI clinician. These screens introduced non-clinicians to the A-B-A world of PRI and will undoubtedly demonstrate the value of PRI Yoga to their clients. The PRI Assessment Poses are yogic manifestations of the Hruska Adduction Lift Test and proved to be playful ways of finding the PRIYAS hidden in the poses. 

Throughout Sunday, we explored PRI Yoga poses (asana) in movement labs interspersed throughout the day. I taught asanas that emphasized one or integrated all three planes of movement. I especially loved sharing Bollywood and Warrior 3 as they are equally inspired by yoga's birthplace and by PRI non-manual techniques; they also optimize late left stance and early right stance respectively. We modified the traditional movement sequences of the sun and moon salutations with many students feeling more neutral after just one round. Next, we focused a new PRI "P" word with pranayama or breathing practices that attained and maintained the ZOA.  In closing, I offered recommendations on sequencing a yoga class to parallel a PRI treatment progression and provided PRI Yoga interventions based on potential PRI Yoga Screen outcomes. 

It was a full weekend marrying the complementary aspects of PRI and Yoga. We received gracious feedback and look forward to offering it again next year with some of the first-time glitches fixed. This course brought together two vast bodies of knowledge and left all of us in awe of the similarities and the breadth of these healing paths. I am humbled and honored to share it with you all.
