What do we teach?

  • Our goal is for you to understand the biomechanical principles related to the movements of the Pelvis, Hip and Spine. This is a big topic and we will do our best to simplify it so you come away understanding  different models of stability, nutation/counternutation, we look at ‘inner and outer core’ and discuss what is meant by ‘tensegrity’. 
  • Once we know have an understanding of the theory behind hip, pelvis and spinal mechanics we can look at what’s supposed to happen during optimal movement and is that what you see or feel?
  • Objective screens: we teach screens to help clarify what we see, to help identify what may be going wrong and to know when clients need to be referred on.  Screens taught are evidence based and referenced.
  • How to recognise some common conditions
  • What to do with what we find (soft tissue techniques, Pilates exercises and any thing else that might be useful)
