IT’S ALL ABOUT THE SENSES
My first trip ever to California for Postural-Visual Integration this last weekend did not disappoint! Sensory awareness (aka Vision) and how it can impact physical performance is what our two days were all about. Between the truly amazing visual scenes at the course location and the coast, the smells and sounds from the ocean and a ballpark, and the sight and sounds of a group of people having fun learning it was a weekend I’ll always remember. Sensory experiences change lives; this was reinforced by a text I received the morning after the course from an attendee working with an 82-yr-old who has serious balance problems who was walking better during his visit using visual techniques learned the day before. I couldn’t be more fulfilled!
Thanks to Skip George and John Swain for hosting at this incredible venue! It could not have been more perfect for a course all about “sensing” the space around you and the ground under you. Thanks also to all the attendees, a great mixed group of PTs, OTs, trainers, strength coaches, massage therapists, and a behavioral optometrist, for indulging Ron and I for two days while we played verbal ping-pong! Here’s to Moving Beyond Sight!
