A couple years back when Matthew Uohara was in Lincoln completing the Postural Restoration Trained (PRT) credentialing program, he told us about a book he is authoring, titled Leading the Movement. Some chapters in his book include: Music in the Movement, I See Movement, The Artist and the Teacher, An Evolutionary Base, An Asymmetrical Base, An Epigenetic Base, along with several other chapters. Long before the topic was chosen for the 2016 Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium, Matt was talking to us about the influence that sound has on performance and movement. For this reason, Matt was an easy selection for this year’s symposium to present on his experience with sound, music and auditory input in working as a strength and conditioning specialist training weekend warriors and athletes of all kinds. Matt’s presentation title at this year's Interdisciplinary Integration Symposium is “Evolution, Illusion and Neurofeedback – Harnessing the Power of Sound during Performance.”
Matthew Uohara is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA. He holds a Masters in Human Movement. Matthew has studied Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization through the Prague Rehabilitation School, he is Postural Restoration Trained through the Postural Restoration Institute in Lincoln, Nebraska and is a Functional Range Conditioning movement specialist. Matthew currently trains athletes from all the professional ranks including the NFL, NHL, MLB, WNBA, and WTA. In addition Matthew prepares individuals for both the Summer and Winter Olympics.
Sneak Peek at Matthew’s Presentation:
Sound is an illusory world. Hidden in these illusions are evolutionary impressions born out of the struggle to move the way we do! This relationship between sound and performance allows us, the added variable, to harness this power in the form of patterned neuro-feedback. If handled in an educated manner, the outcome of this relationship can be a potentially elegant mover!
