Recovery may be the most overlooked aspect of exercise. Everyone seems to focus on how many minutes to bike, what heart rate to run, or how much weight to lift. Improvements in fitness, however, occur during the recovery period between workouts, not during the workout itself.

Time Block S - Sunday, 2:10-4:00pm
Rarely do instructors get an opportunity to explore the necessary concept of "self-care," so often omitted from the information we need to know when preparing for certifications!

The Unstable Pelvis, Level I course reviews the recent advances in neurofascial science regarding pelvic stability and presents applications for whole-body assessment, strategy and long-term treatment based on an integrated, applicable model. Using MELT reconnect, repattern and reintegration techniques and stabilization exercises, you will learn how to efficiently address common neurofascial dysfunction and improve chronic pattern pain within the pelvic girdle. 1-hour lunch is on your own. Workshop price includes manual, MELT roller and a mini MELT Hand and Foot Treatment Kit. Continuing education credits are pending.

Rarely do instructors get an opportunity to explore the necessary concept of "self-care," so often omitted from the information we need to know when preparing for certifications! Embark on an in-depth study of self-care and burnout avoidance that will include the fusion of mind-body applications, spa approaches, nourishment of the five senses, and internal healing and regeneration. This workshop will share several proven M.A.P.S. (Meditation, Affirmations and Asana, Pranayama and Sensory bombardment) to guide you toward this purpose. Most amazingly, this experience will address all of your senses and requires NO equipment to be effective.
