The Ball, the Bowl, and the Slinky: How the head, pelvis, and spine work together to move us powerfully through life

Why is our skeleton designed the way it is? How do our muscles work to move us with grace, speed, and power? This workshop will bring clarity to these questions and more as we examine the three essential components needed for balance and fluid movement--the head, pelvis, and spine--and explore their integral relationship in early development. Complex material comes alive with simplicity and applications in everyday situations. Through experiential exercises, video, discussion, and ATM® lessons, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of this intricate system and obstacles that hinder our growth toward thriving adulthood.
