Pittsburgh, PA - "I had a great weekend teaching an entire class of 17 newbies to the science of PRI with Myokinematic Restoration. Jeremy Smith was a great host and we all enjoyed his facility at Iron City Elite in the suburbs of Pittsburgh. It was truly an interdisciplinary meeting of PT’s, DC’s, ATC’s, CSCS’s and personal trainers. We all had a blast learning together. These individuals left excited about trying out their new knowledge of respiration and AFIR! Yes, Ron they all got the concept of hole control in the Iron City! Go #prination! It was great to see the influence of social media on the spreading of this great nation! It was fun to meet in person some of my PRI twitter followers!

Whittier, CA - "This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to present Myokinematic Restoration to a significant number of “new” PRI course attendees on the campus of Southern California University of Health Sciences, where 600 chiropractic students graduate yearly. This was a high cerebral powered group and kept me on my toes, which fueled me to the max daily. Because of this infusion I reminded myself that our left hemispheres make all of us human. By teaching this class I once again was reminded of the human need to use our left hemispheric mindedness for Left AIC patterning. We often are encouraged to facilitate certain antagonistic muscle in PRI to oppose three planes of left hemispheric activity or the Left AIC pattern. But it is because of courses like this I get to focus on what is really important to focus on, the inhibition of Left AIC overactive muscle, so that we can involve our right hemispheric creativity and bilateral function. It was so much fun to discuss and demonstrate the need to inhibit the left gluteus maximus and the right adductor group of the leg to restore bilateral use of our bodies in the frontal plane. This Left AIC position also includes sagittal and transverse patterned muscle that needs to be inhibited for tri-planar bilateral success. Therefore, focusing on inhibition programs for the left iliacus and the left psoas and the right bicep femoris was equally rewarding for me to think about. However, the need to disengage a left tensor fascia latae muscle that is trying to move the left acetabulum on the femur for AFIR is so important to occasionally be mindful of, just as remembering the importance of reducing the right quadratus lumborum activity that more than likely is being used in attempting to gain right acetabular external rotation on the femur (Right AFER). I absolutely love discussing this kind of neuro integration and neuro inhibition in the facilitation of desirable lateralized direction." - Ron Hruska
Seattle, WA - "I enjoyed a sunny beautiful weekend teaching Myokinematic Restoration in majestic Seattle Washington with the staff from PRO Sports Club in a great facility designed for rehab, fitness and sports performance. Thanks Carl for being such a great host and for trusting me on my movie recommendations. They say it can rain a lot in Seattle, but I’ve never seen it, because it’s always sunny and beautiful when I go.
Grateful to be so well assisted by Betsy Baker-Bold, PRC from Olympic Physical Therapy and to see her be so willing to share all she knows. An open attitude with a desire to effectively mentor others has always helped make this Institute great.
We had a great time discussing hot topics like pelvic and hip position, ligamentous muscle, muscle function in three planes and human performance. Its so great to see PRI grow and expand across the Pacific Northwest with several different clinicians and clinics all jockeying to be the next host site for whatever the Institute may be planning to teach in the region". - James Anderson
