- Location 1
Have you ever examined the way that you walk and/or run? Can you travel across the ground with relative ease? Did you know that your spine is the main driver for your upright movements? These days, if we’re walking or running, it’s typically either to get to a destination or for exercise. Humans have largely lost the habit of using these movements purely for the enjoyment of the journey. Adding to this, how we coordinate our body in movement can often inhibit those efforts, and keep us away from other upright activity, like jumping, climbing, or dancing. Whether you are looking to boost your weekly walks/runs, seeking to improve athletic capability or simply want to explore ways to make the journey more enjoyable, this workshop can help you get there. In this session you’ll learn: - about the psoas muscle and how to effectively use your spine in upright locomotion - about the hip-knee-foot complex and how the three joints work together in walking, running, and jumping - how to use your arms to aid in propulsion - how to foster more joy and freedom in your movement Cost (per workshop): Early-bird (until Monday, March 18): $20 Regular pricing: $28 Suggested to bring: Water bottle and a snack.
