WORKSHOP #1: Joint Conditioning for Injury Prevention and Care

In life and in sport, you will often go outside of perfect alignment. Conditioning your joints outside of commonly known proper alignment helps you prevent and manage injuries.

In this workshop, you will learn a systematic approach to mobilize and strengthen the major joints in your body. We will cover effective techniques used by elite strength coaches and physical therapists, and practiced in bodyweight disciplines, such as gymnastics, martial arts, acrobatics, and dance. We will focus on building resilience and functionality in the ankles, knees, hips, spine, shoulders, elbows, and wrists.

WORKSHOP #2: Bodyweight Strength Training

You are as strong as your weakest link. 

In this workshop, you will learn how to build balanced, relative strength using your bodyweight as resistance. You will learn seven important movement patterns that will maximize functional and versatile strength. We will go through specific progressions for each movement pattern to build up to advanced moves, such as the single arm push up and pull up, the handstand push up, the single leg squat, and more. 
We will combine elements of traditional and bodyweight/gymnastics focused strength training to create programs that maximize time and lead to full body strength, balance, and adaptability.

WORKSHOP #3: Active and Functional Mobility

Flexibility unsupported by strength and stability is a major cause of injuries. 

In this workshop, we will use multiple approaches including active, static and loaded stretching, and FRC (Functional Range Conditioning) to increase mobility and build strength in the deepest ranges of motion. We will focus on the spine, hip, and shoulder mobility, and work on forward and back bending, splits and straddles. You will also learn how to design your own flexibility program based on your goals.

WORKSHOP #4: Integrating Movement and Lifestyle

The way you move is the way you live. Training should be fun, skill building, and challenging in unpredictable ways. 

In this workshop, you will learn locomotive patterns and movement games that will help you improve balance, challenge skill building, inspire playfulness and creativity. This workshop will help you practice awareness while integrating strength, mobility, and joint conditioning. You will also pick up useful skills like falling, rolling, and interacting with the ground. We will finish with a discussion about holistic lifestyle and nutrition, to help you lead a sustainable and healthy life.
