Workshop Details

Foundation Training is a method of integrated exercises that empowers you with the ability to identify and correct the postural imbalances created by modern society. This transformative method of movement corrects the fundamental flaw in current human movement patterns — the inability to hinge at the hips — through exercises that access the deepest postural muscles, reactivating the dormant chains needed for proper movement and offering a counterbalance to our degenerative lifestyles. Ideal for chronic or acute back, shoulder, hip, and knee pain, and for athletes looking to improve their performance, Foundation Training has helped thousands of people move from pain to performance, including Olympic and professional athletes.
During this workshop, you will be shown how the human body is designed to move and support itself. You will leave with new tools to help you feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually stronger than you ever thought imaginable. Whether you’re in pain, seeking to improve in a sport, or a clinician or trainer who wants to increase treatment skills and outcomes, you can discover and radically re-define the body’s natural movement patterns with Foundation Training.
