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

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

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

This week’s featured speaker for our 5th Annual Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium is Ken Crenshaw. A native of New Mexico, Crenshaw graduated from New Mexico State University with a degree in sports medicine and worked as an athletic trainer in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization for three years and as the strength and conditioning coordinator with the Atlanta Braves for four years before heading to Tampa Bay for 10 years. In December 2005, Crenshaw was named the Head Athletic Trainer for the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is a certified member of the National Athletic Trainers Association and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

“After meeting Ken Crenshaw in 2008, at an educational course that I presented to his staff, he sent me an article written by Pavel Kolar, a mentor of his and mine. Since that time, he has sent me several articles and emails on everything from the diaphragm to neurology as it relates to stabilization and integrating function. He has so much experience and wisdom. What were we thinking when we scheduled him to speak for only 2 hours?” - Ron Hruska

Monterey, CA (Postural Respiration) - Three great days on the Monterey Peninsula.  Provided staff training at the Pebble Beach Golf Academy on Friday followed by the Postural Respiration course in Monterey on Saturday and Sunday.  A big thank you to Julie Blandin, PT, PRC for all the work she does to promote PRI in California.  She is a West Coast pioneer that has overcome a wide variety of obstacles to help advance PRI to a new and very interested audience. Way to go Julie! -James Anderson

Bath, ME (Postural Respiration) - This past weekend in Maine was one of the better Postural Respiration classes I have taught. We had lots of time for progression of non-manual techniques and the entire class was enthusiastic and switched-on! -Mike Cantrell

Wilmette, IL (Myokinematic Restoration) - Had a great weekend in the Windy City teaching Myokinematic Restoration of the hip and pelvis to a diverse group of professionals! It is exciting to see the science of PRI reaching out to other disciplines! Donna is a wonderful host and her staff of Pilates and Yoga instructors energy was infectious!  It is always great to see new clinicians reactions to the power of respiration and the connection to the pelvis.  I remember my first impression of Ron’s work and I am humbled to share it with others! I cant wait to teach again! -Jen Poulin
