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.

I had a great time teaching my last Myokin course of 2014 in Canton CT this year. It was so nice to back in New England in the early Fall. I miss my NE roots, but love our new life in NC!  I had the opportunity to engage and enlighten a room full of professionals that were equally excited to learn the science of PRI. We were once again represented by a diverse group of professionals from PT’s, ATC’s, MTs, Personal trainers and fitness professionals. Paula and her staff at Canton PT were amazing hosts with a beautiful warm clinic. This course filled and had a wait list!  I am sure the PRINATION will continue to grow in this area. I had fun with my front row of students. They kept me laughing and on my toes all weekend long!  We all appreciated the importance of parasympathetics and balancing not only our pelvis’s but our lives!  Until we meet again, Myokinematics….See y’all in 2015!

Looking forward to the PRI Vision Integration for the Baseball Player course after seeing the materials that will be covered. The introduction of the PRI vision concepts into our player progressions have been a powerful adjunct, and a missing piece, for some of those hard to crack cases. Getting an apprecation for space in a sport that is constantly looking for more visual focus has allowed some of our players to get into a position of transition and reciprocation that they were previously unable to attain.
