WHAT STUDENTS ARE SAYING
“This is really great. I have taken four other pelvic floor courses with other teachers. I know for me the repeat of information is very helpful. This course is much more comprehensive, easy to follow and take in. Thanks!” Jill
“All your information in the Pelvic Floor tutorial taught me knowledge to help my client. Your offering changed her life. I used almost every strategy/exercise to "wake up" her body and allow her brain to connect the dots to increase her engagement of the pelvic floor, which led to engagement throughout the rest of her body. She is a changed woman! I attribute that to you all! Your offering changed my life, changed her life, and I will continue to share the knowledge you have given me to all the students I interact with!” Elena Cuomo, yoga teacher

ABOUT MOVEMENT LOGIC
The Movement Logic tutorials aim to enhance your problem-solving skills so you can work more effectively with your students and clients who are injured or in pain.
Become Anatomically and Biomechanically Informed
- Learn musculoskeletal anatomy to better understand how bodies move, adapt, maladapt, get injured, experience pain, and heal
- Familiarize yourself with common pathologies to better understand the cascade of your body's response to tissue injury, as well as how pain is commonly patterned in response to these injuries
- You'll study up-to-date, biopsychosocial pain science that breaks down old beliefs in order to paint a more accurate picture of the often complicated and counterintuitive behavior of pain
- The biopsychosocial model is a holistic perspective to pain that looks at the relationship between your biology, your mind, and society, and how those elements together influence your whole body experience of pain
Acquire Teaching Skills
- You will acquire corrective exercise techniques for helping private clients who have diagnosed injuries as well as those with unspecified pain
- You'll learn best practices for presenting these corrective exercises in a group class
