Stillwater, MN (Myokinematic Restoration) - “I knew it was going to be a great course in Minnesota this weekend when I saw this vintage Yellow VW sitting in the parking lot on my way into The Courage Center. For those of you who haven’t taken a course from myself or Mike Cantrell, the Yellow VW represents the Left AIC pattern. If you are not looking for the pattern, you don’t see it. Likewise with Yellow VW’s. I now see them everywhere I go! They are everywhere. I was equally excited when Lindsay a “first timer” shared with me her Yellow VW sighting on Sunday afternoon! The majority of clinicians that spent their weekend with me were mostly taking their first course. They hung in there with me and my lab assistant Sidney. Both Sidney and I enjoyed passing the PRI baton off to this great group of clinicians. The more I teach, the more impressed I am with new students filling our classes and being excited to learn more.” - Jen Poulin
Boston, MA (Postural Respiration) - “Boston was beautiful in the spring. The trees were blossoming and so was PRI. So many eager attendees were there and we had a great time! Is this going to be the new haven for PRI? Thanks Donna for helping bring PRI to Boston! - Mike Cantrell
Ann Arbor, MI (Postural Respiration) - “A beautiful weekend in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan. Great mix of PT, PTA, ATC, OT, DC, CSCS, Athletic Performance Professionals, Music Instructors and Women’s Health Professionals. Lots of fun discussing how reciprocal thoracic function relates to each one of these disciplines and allows success with a wide variety of patient goals. Hail to the Victors!” - James Anderson
I have received some emails and questions regarding the squat with correct respiratory mechanics. This is discussed and explained in the Pelvis Restoration course. I am excited that people have the desire to understand the integration between the respiratory and pelvic diaphragms. I hope the attached document, The Squat and Respiration will help clear up any confusion. If not, please let me know.
What a great weekend in Seattle! This class impressed me with their questions. My brain was tired Sunday night. They had more questions than any other class that I have taught, I truly felt they were trying to understand and integrate the material. I walked away from this class emphasizing the importance of integrating the pelvic and respiratory diaphragms correctly with PRI activity. It can be a powerful tool to assist our patient with reciprocal alternating function, but if done incorrectly can create pathology. Thanks for the hospitality Olympic Physical Therapy and I will see you again in June! - Lori Thomsen
There is limited space available yet at the Postural Respiration course sponsored by the University of Michigan Health System Continuing Education Program. The course will be taught by James Anderson on April 27-28th in Ann Arbor, MI. To register for this course, contact Amelia Hippler at 734-936-4376.
We had a great two days discussing Athletic Performance at our 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium! It was by far our largest group with over 115 attendees. A big thank you to all those who attended and the speakers who contributed to the integrative learning: Mike Arthur, Ken Crenshaw, Heidi Wise, John Cook, Dr. Kris Berg, Eric Cressey, Drew Marchesi, and Ron Hruska!
A few testimonials from course attendees:
“Thank you so much - always such a great course, really enjoyed the content - great mix of speakers, topics.”
“I was looking forward to the content and it exceeded my expectations. The only thing is that I wanted more!!”
“This was a wonderful integration of biomechanics with physiology to allow athletes and practitioners to communicate and breathe.”
In addition, we had several requests for the Sweet Crispix Chex Mix recipe, so HERE it is!
Pitman, NJ (Pelvis Restoration) - “Had a great time back at Endeavor Sports in New Jersey teaching Pelvis Restoration. Kevin Neeld is a great host and it is always great to see Strength and Conditioning Specialists hungry to learn more about PRI. I even got the opportunity to do some lifting after Saturdays course work! It was fun to have Athletic Trainers and Strength and Conditioning professionals from points north (Montreal, Canada) and south (Miami Dolphins )represented. PRI is not only for PT anymore!” - Jen Poulin
Dallas, TX (Pelvis Restoration) - “This past weekend in Dallas was awesome. It was a great weekend with passionate practitioners learning to integrate PRI into their practice. We also had quite a few newbies that held their own. I felt as a class they were enlightened with how powerful the respiratory and pelvic diaphragm work together. The need for these two areas to work together is necessary for reciprocal alternating function such as gait to occur. We are ALL pelvic floor practitioners. Great weekend and a great class. You guys rocked it! - Lori Thomsen
Due to the lengthy wait list we have for the April 20-21, 2013 Seattle, WA Pelvis Restoration course, Lori Thomsen will be teaching again June 8-9, 2013! If you are interested in attending this date, please register or contact me today! Spots are limited so register today!

This week’s featured speaker for the 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium is Andrew Marchesi. Drew is a physical therapist at East Valley Spine & Sports Medicine Center in Chandler, Arizona. In addition to his interest and knowledge of Postural Restoration, Drew is a Fellow of Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute and a Nike Golf Performance Specialist.
“I am excited for Drew to share how he integrates Postural Restoration concepts with his training in Applied Functional Science through the Gray Institute, as well as his experience as a Nike Golf Performance Specialist. Tri-planar activity must occur at many joints during the golf swing, and Drew will highlight considerations for evaluation, golf swing analysis and integrative treatment of the golfer. He will have us all prepared to treat those summer golf injuries!” -Ron Hruska
There is still seating available for the Symposium being held in Lincoln on April 11-12th. CLICK HERE to register!
