Live and interactive with fascial pioneer and Anatomy Trains author TomMyers.
This section briefly covers how ‘tensegrity’ geometry gives us a better model for understanding body movement.
The main part of this workshop covers:
1) Assessing skeletal relationships (learning to read imbalance)

series of moves toward a sustainable new way of being for your client.
