The Power of Touch (1 Day; 9a-4p or equivalent)

 

Diagonal Tactile Concepts and Cueing Techniques

Spirals are the building blocks of nature and of all human movement. This workshop introduces and clarifies the dynamic tactile cues that are the underpinnings to optimal postural alignment and fluidity during the movement.

 

Objectives:

  • Elevate your teaching to a higher level of proficiency
  • Learn a supportive two-point touch technique that effectively communicates movement and movement re-patterning leading to fluidity and efficiency in movement.
