A weekend symposium in New York City

Helen Mills Event Space, 137-139 West 26th Street NYC
Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn from anatomy and movement pioneers Tom Myers, Leslie Kaminoff and Amy Matthews co-presenting a transformative weekend symposium.
Using lavishly illustrated lectures and movement explorations, this workshop is for anyone with feet, especially movement teachers and manual therapists of all kinds.
28 bones wrapped in a fascial bag, our uniquely human foot is a marvel of engineering – and it needs to be: such a tiny base of support under a tall and gangly skeleton with a high center of gravity.
Tiny changes in the position of our foot bones can make huge differences in functional ability and pain. Learn to see proper positioning and response to guide your clients or students into dynamic, responsive feet that hold the body up easily and tread lightly on the planet.
WORKSHOP TOPICS INCLUDE:
- The essential arches of our feet
- The ankle joints and body balance
- The improbable heel and support for the back body
- Slings and arch support: the calf muscles to the rescue
- Responsive walking and the myofascial meridians — how we handle forces as we walk
- Maintaining a pliable foot in an urban environment
