Foundations to KIEP Methodology, Balance and Posture
This first workshop offers a great foundation to the science and practical application on how to get people exercising after they sustained an injury or if they want to start exercising after a sedentary lifestyle. Improper movement patterns, referred to as movement dysfunctions stand in their way to regain or exceed full function. The concept of the human body as an interconnected kinetic chain - as the head bone is connected to the neck bone and so on - will be studied and practiced. This workshop is complemented by the Foundations e-book
