This past weekend, I visited one of my favorite places to teach PRI courses. The energy of "the City that never sleeps" always seems to match the energy and enthusiasm for the science of PRI. This was my third trip back to New York to teach a class. On a personal note, it was great to bring my husband Chris and daughter Devon along again this weekend. We basically ate our way through the city and thankfully were able to walk most of what we indulged on off over the course of the 4 days! A friend and future PRT Kyle Langworthy’s brother Brandon Langworthy, DPT was attending his first PRI class. Brandon lives close to me in NC, so I look forward to seeing him again as well as the other attendees that were taking their first or second PRI course. I was also honored to be part of Kasey Aiken’s mentorship as she prepares to teach this course next year. I will let Kasey share her thoughts and experiences from the weekend.

From Kasey: "The class brought the energy from the city into the two full packed days of learning Myokinematic Restoration. With 80% of the class being their first PRI course ever, the questions and ability to learn and regurgitate the material was very impressive. We even had a DO that lives in Belgium fly over to learn the science of PRI. The combination of strength and conditioning specialists, PTs, and even PT students in the course is what keeps PRI applicable and beneficial to all different disciplines. They mastered exercises in lab to reposition the pelvis as well as strengthen the pelvis in the new neutral state. The attendees began to understand the correlation between the infamous Hruska ADDuction and ABDuction lift scores in regards to the gait cycle. Being able to tag team teaching with Jen Poulin was an absolute honor and appropriate considering she was the first faculty member to present Myokinematic Restoration to me several years back. A thanks to Brad Gillen, for assisting in lab, we couldn't have done it without your help and expertise to hit home for such a large group of attendees."
