This course will teach you tools to both assess and improve postural imbalances while gaining a deeper understanding of what drives posture and how it affects the health & function of the body from a functional biomechanics perspective. An accurately performed squat is an essential part of a postural correction as well as many back, hip and knee rehab programs. When done incorrectly though, it often creates pain and dysfunction. Learn a new way of squatting applying tensegrity biomechanics.

Course outline
