I had a great time last weekend teaching Pelvis Restoration in Newton, MA. I had not taught a class since last year! It was great being able to spend more time with my daughter Madison before we sent her off to college. Yes, the rumors are all true, she is a Freshman at the University of Vermont! My alma mater! I guess you can take the girl out of VT, but she can always go back! So now it was time for me to get back to #PRINation and share my "pearls" of PRI wisdom. The class was a nice mix of new clinicians to PRI and some that were looking to refine their PRI interventions and concepts. Pelvis Restoration is one of the three intro courses that allows a more integrated discussion of respiration as it relates to the Pelvis and frontal plane control. This course is so much fun to teach! Pelvis allows the clinician to explore how a "Laga Gaga" Born this Way chain can cause our "inner Beyonce" to come out as we learn to stabilize left stance. Thanks so much to Donna Behr for being an amazing host and Anita Furbush, PRC for coming to help me during lab. Since then, I have been busy getting ready for the impending Hurricane. Please pray for the Carolinas as we prepare for Hurricane Florence to hit our sweet states.

Providence, RI, one of the oldest cities in the U.S., is home to University Orthopedics. This PT clinic is GOAT, with large windows and water views on three sides, providing a parasympathetic balance to the focused attention on the impact of human asymmetry. It was wonderful to have professionals from different backgrounds (PT, PTA, ATC, CSCS, LMT) and skill sets come together to consider the profound impact of the diaphragm and rib cage on our movement. Following the discussion on the differences between optimal and sub-optimal breathing patterns, one attendee revealed that this was the first time in her life that she was able to inflate a balloon😊. The smaller-than-typical group size allowed for more one-on-one time in lab, ensuring attendees’ proficiency at carrying out objective tests and non-manual and manual techniques. Thank you to our models (Daniel Anthony, ATC; Kerri-Lynn Francis, LMT; Landa Pappas, PTA; Damion Perry, BS, CSCS; Joseph Robinson, ATC; and Maurice Sicard, ATC) and our reader, Stacey Brennan, MT, PTA – you greatly enhanced our understanding of course concepts. A huge thank you to our hosts at University Orthopedics (Dan Bien, PT, OCS, CSCS; Stacy Faiola, PT, CSCS; Kevin Mahoney, DPT, ATC; Dave Pezzullo, MS, PT, SCS, ATC; and Ed Wojciechowski, PT) for all of the work you put forth to provide a fantastic learning environment!

Myokinemetic Restoration (Covington, LA) - Glad to be in the Bayou State. This weekend, I taught PRI's first course in the great state of Louisiana. Ron and Mike have both consulted and taught private course offerings in Louisiana in the past, but this was our first formal course open to the general public and it was a great experience.

Thank you Chris and Karlie McDougall at Renew Physical Therapy in Covington for hosting and making sure the experience was fun for everyone. Thanks for inviting your staff and also for inviting a local orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Joey Bonvillain. Our course was better because he stopped in. Your passion for neurology, respiration and biomechanics is palpable and you're helping to spread the news across Southern Louisiana by starting to host PRI courses at your facility.

You guys made everyone feel welcome and you also gave me some top notch recommendations for food and entertainment. Your recommendation to go to the annual White Linen Art Festival in downtown Covington was a great idea for my Saturday Night entertainment and I loved it.

And thanks for introducing me to Cajun seasoned Oysters on the Half Shell, those perfectly spiced Boudin Balls, Crayfish and Fried Alligator. I fell in love with The Chimes and called it my new favorite restaurant, until I realized most all the food in Southern Louisiana tasted that good. And the Pralines you gifted me from the French Quarter Candy Market, forget about it, I'm all in.

Dave Giardina is an Athletic Trainer and Therapist on the Renew team who actually was Chris McDougall's little league baseball coach. Dave, it was great to have you there, for more than one reason. First, you are seasoned enough to get my jokes, smiling and laughing when some of the younger clinicians look at me like I just said something totally out there. But mostly because your comments and questions were so valuable and your example of being a lifelong learner inspired us all. Thanks for being you Dave.

Also thanks to our model patient, Allison Roux, who helped demonstrate the exercise progressions for the class with growing confidence. Thanks for your questions, but mostly for your feedback to the group on how the exercises felt to you. You and I are the same age and when you said your left hip stopped clicking and felt secure after literally clicking every day since you were 19 years old, you made me stop and think about how many steps I've taken since I was 19 and what a frustration that might have been. The concept of "Ligamentous Muscle", as taught in this Myokinematic Restoration course can truly be life changing. Thanks for reminding me of that fact and helping the rest of the class realize how powerful it can be when applied correctly.

And thank you Jeff Bangs for bringing your enthusiasm to the class and your helpful insights as an Athletic Trainer in professional sports. Thank you to your mentor and my friend Navin Hettiarachchi for recommending that you come to this course and for being such an inspirational leader for everyone on the Wizards staff. And so you know Jeff, I did follow up with Navin and he confirmed that you did indeed gave him that big hug I requested you give him from me. Thanks for following through on that. You're a great young talent with an obvious passion for continued learning and you're going to go far.
