This past weekend I had the pleasure of presenting Pelvis Restoration for the 3rd time in the last month! I did a course swap earlier this year as I couldn't pass up the opportunity to teach PRI in the Big Apple! My kids had a few days off from school, so we made it a family getaway. And..... My niece Kirsten who goes to school in Florida, just happened to be in the City with her Advertising club. There is nothing better than family and PRI! We spent a few days touring the city and eating our way around town. We took in a Broadway show and visited the 9/11 museum and memorial. It was a nice way to commemorate Veterans Day. Once the family fun was over, it was off to teach at Finish Line PT. This place is just so cool. I taught at this facility around 3 years ago. It is always great to teach again at the facilities that I have taught in the past. This group has taken on a passion for PRI and loves to host courses! Can't wait to come back again in the future.
Pelvis Restoration is all about the frontal plane. I think I might have repeated the femur, pelvic outlet and pelvic inlet frontal plane relationships at least 25 times. I was going for 50, but I think they got it! This group of clinicians were not afraid to ask questions to better understand the material. I had a group of experienced clinicians and first timers that we affectionately refer to as "newbies" The newbies were definitely getting it! At the first break, I was approached by Courtney Pierre who was taking his 3rd PRI course. He was not certain he was understanding PRI, but after my initial remarks, his Ah Ha moments were happening and I am so glad he shared that with me. For those that have learned from me, I know you know how much I love to teach PRI and help bring people to a greater understanding of this integrated science. Pelvis Restoration is a great platform to begin a PRI journey as it is a bit integrated.
Another special shout out goes to our token Pilates Instructor Maddy Kulesik. Maddy came to the course on the special encouragement from her parents Pat and Ellen. They just happen to be patients and clients of ours in NC. Maddy did great and loved her first PRI course. I don't think it will be her last. Way to go Maddy.
Thanks again to everyone who spent their weekend with me at Finish Line. The staff were amazing hosts and made me feel right at home. This was my last course of 2017 and I will hit the road again in the summer of 2018. Thanks to Jen and Ron for giving me an extended break to spend with my daughter Madison as she will flying out of our nest and off to college next year.
Until we meet again... Have a blessed Holiday Season and Happy New Year.
